colour matters has also created a terrific sampling/cost analysis/specification program which works with all colour matters software. best of all, it's cross-platform, so it'll run on both windows and mac os.
it's easy to use, quick to work through and it's very affordable. it allows you to manage style data and minimise communication and production problems.
the design specs workbook is a cost-effective way to organise your pre-production workplace with style information; development specifications; work-in-progress reports; bills of material; cost-analysis reports; and many others. all interconnected and interactive, this makes managing your work and progress easier.
the design specs workbook is excel based, so you'll need a working knowledge of windows and a basic knowledge of excel.
