Pros: Includes standard rates and production standards for a very wide spectrum of graphic arts operations

Cons: Software or Rate Tables have seen an update in the last 5 years. As a result, the product suffers from occasional hiccups and mis-starts. We have had to create laborious work-arounds to keep using the product.

Overall: Fairly consistent, but outdated pricing for a diverse range of printed products.
