What is QuotePix?
Visimation QuotePix is an add-on program for Microsoft Office Visio that provides sales people, engineers, and customers with the ability to easily generate simple estimates directly from Visio drawings. QuotePix dynamically calculates and displays quantities of the items on each Visio page.  It accurately tracks what’s been added, subtracted, and changed in the system you are configuring to help verify that it meets your design criteria or customers’ needs. QuotePix generates a quote on an Excel spreadsheet tailored to your company’s branding and formatting preferences.  
Who needs QuotePix?
QuotePix is ideally suited for any size company that manufactures and/or sells products that are assembled into systems such as:
  • Network equipment
  • Building controls
  • Security systems
  • Furniture
  • Fire and safety 
  • Medical equipment and exam rooms
  • Factory floors
  • … and much more 
How does QuotePix work with Visio? 
QuotePix works with Visio 2007 and 2003.  The program works with any stencil included with the Visio product as well as any custom stencils. When used with Visio 2007, QuotePix can easily import product and pricing information from other data sources including Excel, Access, SQL, and more.  Link the data to your shapes, view the quantity take-offs, and generate a Bill of Materials (BOM) that lists the descriptions and pricing information you need. The QuotePix user interface includes a Visio menu item and Visio toolbar so it looks just like the Visio you are accustomed to… but with added features.  QuotePix provides a collection of sample templates for a variety of uses and you can also create your own.

QuotePix counts the number of each part in the Visio drawing file, collects information from their Shape Data, and generates an Excel spreadsheet listing the contents of the configuration, floorplan, layout, etc.
QuotePix ships with several Excel templates.  If the provided formats don't meet your needs, you can create your own Excel template to present the data you would like your customers to see.  Visimation can also create these custom templates as an additional service.
