PrintVis Packaging Manufacturing Pricing



CAD $62,300.00 USD $49,000.00

Fixed Fee Implementation

Bronze pricing is meant for smaller or simpler commercial print businesses that do not need complex production manufacturing capabilities and only very simple inventory.

This project is great to get off the ground quickly with an “out of the box” implementation of all the basic features, leaving anything more advanced for phase 2.

No significant customizations are supported in Bronze projects. No ISV / 3rd party addons will be used.


CAD $87,500.00 USD $70,000.00

Fixed Fee Implementation

Silver is meant for more advanced commercial printers who will run manufacturing through their shop, analyze job costs, and need basic inventory management and accounting without warehousing or fulfillment.

This project still focuses on “out of the box” but leaves more room for advanced features and opens the door to somewhat complex customizations or 3rd party addons.

Limited customizations are supported in Silver projects. Selected ISV / 3rd Party addons are included. Programming fees and ISV addon licenses are always extra.


CAD $123,800.00 USD $99,000.00

Fixed Fee Implementation

Gold is meant for a complex commercial printer that needs more than basic accounting, core inventory management, fulfillment, and/or needs integration with complex systems through JDF.

Gold projects are eligible to train almost all features of Business Central as well as being eligible to complete complex integrations if required.

Customizations of almost any type are supported in Gold projects. Most ISV / 3rd party addons are available. Programming fees and ISV addon licenses are always extra.

Frequently Asked Questions

PrintVis is a Print MIS addon for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. It adds estimating, status flow (workflow), item classification, production, and many other Print and Packaging MIS features to standard Business Central. Business Central provides inventory management, purchasing, invoicing, financial/accounting, CRM, and many other features. PrintVis adds industry-specific features for the print industry.

We answer this question in a blog meant to help you determine how many users you will need. You can read it here.

You have to pay for Project Excellence based on the number of FULL users you will go live with. This is the only way to fairly measure the size of your business and therefore the extra costs that will be associated with the project. Project Excellence is meant to capture the price difference between a large customer with many users to be trained and a small customer with few.

We have found that customers complete many “phase 2” activities on their own with just the continuing support from Sabre after the project ends.  Sometimes a small amount of extra support can be added for brief periods to facilitate continuous process improvement with your team. This is by far the best way to achieve phase 2 activities. Measure the return on investment of each extra task, and execute them so long as they make sense to do.

Sabre wants to help your business with ongoing continuous improvement in Business Central. We offer Business Excellence, our premium support program. The cost is CAD $87.50 USD $75 and it is mandatory for the 12 months after your project ends. Business Excellence entitles you to several benefits:
– Unlimited email and remote support incidents
– Unlimited coaching and consulting engagements (first come first serve)
– Use of our Business Excellence addon module with dozens of helpful features

Business Central Engineer to order implementation projects are made up of three phases – Implementation, Go-Live, and Transition.  Implementation varies depending on the tier of your project. Bronze tends to be 5 months, Silver is 7 months and Gold is 9 months in length. Go-Live is one month. Transition is two months.  

The average Silver project is 7 months of implementation, followed by a go-live with 1 month of intense support and then 2 months of transition.

Customers who want to add more resources to a project and dedicate more hours can shorten that time significantly. There is a limit on how fast any ERP project can go – usually based on decision making, testing, and training hours available to your team. 

PrintVis estimating is incredibly powerful and flexible. It is similar to setting up Excel formulas. It is impossible for Sabre to tell how long it will take because you choose how detailed you want it to be. If you want to be able to estimate any product that is requested, no matter how “weird” – be prepared for months (or even years) to complete Estimating setup.

PrintVis uses its own inherent print production capability based around the PrintVis Case and Job module. This is different from the standard “out of the box” manufacturing in Business Central. For Commercial Printers, it adds more logical print-oriented capabilities. It does not require that you create a new Item No. to produce. It is very well suited to businesses that make products that are rarely (if ever) repeat orders and if they do repeat, need to be requoted.
