A Winning tool for quickly determining OPEX / CAPEX benefits.
Pricing bulk material handling solutions in the mining and aggregate industries are oftentimes subjective. Stakeholders at times use different parameters for each system to formulate an approximate OPEX / CAPEX when comparing Rail-Veyor®, conveyors and truck haulage. At times, these methods leave planners frustrated and unsure of their findings. Rail-Veyor® has created a material handling price estimating tool that improves a company’s ability to quickly estimate the costs, savings and return on investment that a Rail-Veyor® system can provide.
“This price estimating tool gives customers a do-it-yourself, quick and easy way to get a ball park idea of the OPEX and CAPEX benefits that a Rail-Veyor® system can provide and enables management the ability to compare with the life cycle costs of other systems like conveyors and haulage trucks,” comments Frank Ward, VP of Sales & Marketing for Rail-Veyor® Technologies Global Inc.
The pricing tool offers these benefits:
- ? Quickly obtain the information you need without picking up the phone
- ? Compare and price various Rail-Veyor® material handling systems using various lengths, grades and tonnages
- ? Create an estimation to review with management
- ? More precise budget planning prior to project approval
Ward comments, “At times there are reasons that companies don’t want to ask for an official material handling quote at the onset of a project such as the project is not yet approved, the project may be confidential in nature, etc. However, our experience is that sometimes these customers can get all the way to the point of having approved budgets that are based upon loose, inaccurate rules of thumb and that’s dangerous for the company who may be losing out on a better solution to fit their needs. The Rail-Veyor® price estimating tool is a great tool to prevent this,” adds Ward.
Instead of utilizing high level estimations based on historical prorated pricing, planners (that are not ready to engage a sales team) can utilize this pricing tool. This tool allows planners to design and price systems generally using standard parameters. As the economic justification of a project gains approvals, companies can approach Rail-Veyor® for a more detailed and customized quote to meet the project’s specific design and/or operational needs.
