EPACC - embroidery cost & productivity program


Powerful but Easy-To-Use Embroidery Productivity And Cost Calculator With Automatic Calculation Of Recommended Sell Prices (See levels and pricing below)

This video shows how easy it is to setup and use EPACC.

After the initial setup, EPACC calculates all of your embroidery related costs - labour, machine lease, thread, backing, digitising, rent, electricity . . . . . .  Everything.   EPACC even adds extra production time and cost for thread trims, colour changes and hoop changes.

We all know that not every embroidery shop or machine operator works at the same speed so EPACC allows you to adjust the efficiency value for each machine / operator so your costings become even more accurate over time.  EPACC allows you to calculate and set performance targets for your embroidery staff.




Are you a newcomer to the embroidery business?   Then here's one thing you should not do.

Find out what your nearest competitor charges then match them on price or worse still, undercut them.   Your business costs will almost certainly be different to your competitor.  They might be sharing space and paying little or no rent OR they might be using a multi-head embroidery machine.

At best this is a very short term solution.  If you continue to use this formula you could ruin your chances of building a successful business and you might well have you working around the clock for no profit. . . . . worse still for an income that is not even a decent wage.



It takes only 10 minutes to setup EPACC with your key business costs and after it's done you don't have to worry about it again until there is a change to your business costs.  

What's more - all of that sensitive information like wages, profit Etc is hidden from general view in protected screens that can only be accessed with a secure password.



Just enter some basic design information like job quantity, stitch count, design cost, hoop size and the number of colour changes and thread trims. 

Costs and productivity are calculated instantly and there are also recommended sell prices based upon the markup that YOU have set for your business. 

Sell prices are based upon : Production cost and the speed of service that you might choose to offer to you customers. For example:

  • Standard service
  • Express service
  • Rush service



You can save each job costing, so if your customer comes back for a repeat of the same design in 6 months - you can open the saved copy of their job costing and be sure to give them exactly the same price.

Maybe your customer says "Oh can you just make it 10% bigger"......hoping that you won't charge them more.

Well even a 10% increase can have a major impacy upon running time and cost - especially on a large design with lots of fill stitches.
