Profectus is a national consultancy that helps printing and packaging organizations improve their business by implementing best business practices and maximizing the value of their information technology investments.
The company was founded in 1993 and has contributed to the success of hundreds of printing and packaging organizations spanning all industry segments.
Our consultants are proficient in the business practices necessary to run a successful printing organization including budgeted hourly cost rates, cost accounting, sales & marketing, estimating, pricing, customer service, order entry, inventory
control, production management, accounting, and Lean Office. Profectus also has a thorough understanding of Management Information Systems (MIS), ecommerce solutions, and web-to-print software from years of helping printing organizations evaluate,
purchase, and implement systems. In addition to professional consulting services, Profectus has written publications, articles, white papers, and studies, and provides educational programs, seminars, and speaking engagements at many industry events.
For over 20 years, Profectus has been calculating budgeted hourly cost rates for printing and packaging companies. After years of putting up with other ineffective software products and spreadsheets,
we decided to develop Cost Rates Advisor.
The CostRatesAdvisor.com budgeted hourly cost rates application was designed by industry experts for the printing and packaging industry. It has been engineered based on proven industry best practices, cost accounting principles, and standards used
by industry leaders and experts such as the Printing Industries of America (PIA)©, National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL)©, Specialty Imaging Graphics Association (SGIA)©, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB)©. The
software has built-in "best of breed" formulas, intelligence, and functionality that makes it the industry's most superior product for developing budgeted hourly cost rates.
Cost Rates Advisor is used by organizations spanning all industry segments including commercial, digital, mailing, packaging, labels, large format, screen, and in-plant operations.
