Suppliers of manufactured equipment should identify document services separately from the equipment cost. While documentation is integral to the supply of engineered equipment, manufactured equipment is different, and the workload can be intense on capital projects.

With project orders generally commanding a reduced price per unit, suppliers have little room to invest in quality documentation preparation and management.

DocBoss includes a standard quotation feature that helps you quantify and price out your documentation work to customers at the end of projects. This short video shows you how it’s done.
