Akarana Timbers: Building a Better Quoting System with Fuji Xerox

Akarana Timbers is part of the United Industries Group and New Zealand’s leading independent manufacturer of pre-nail frames and trusses. They have 80 staff and offices in Auckland and Christchurch. The company has a busy estimating department providing free quotes to trade and retail customer alike.

The quoting and estimating process was extremely time consuming and paper intensive. The estimator used to have to print out all documents, carry them to the admin located at another building. The admin will also print out a set of documents and route the documents physically to other departments for review of quotes.

Fuji Xerox implemented a solution that streamlined the storage and management of job documents used for the quoting and estimating process.

The solution consisted of the Fuji Xerox multi-function device (MFD) AP5C4475S that performed as an on-ramp platform for digitising the hardcopy plans, and DocuShare content management solution for routing, storing and archiving of all documents used in the quote and estimate processes.
