Many window tint companies are turning to window tint softwares to increase the efficiency of their operations. Window tint softwares can be separated into two main categories, software used to cut / plot window film, PPF, vinyl, etc and software used to manage operations, such as quoting, scheduling, project management, and automations such as review requests, appointment reminders, and follow ups.
The term computer cut comes from the process of using a computer and plotter to cut window tint as opposed to using a blade and cutting the tint by hand. To do this, you need a window tint software that has patterns. Those patterns are created by the window tint software provider and unique to their software. A precise pattern will make for a perfectly tinted window and a poorly designed pattern will be a waste of window tint so when computer cutting window tint, accuracy of the pattern software is very very important. Most plotter window tint software allow the user to adjust the pattern and save that change for future cuts.
Most window tint plotter softwares offer a free trial so that you can test it out and make sure it meets your needs and expectations. DAP by XPEL, Core Cutting Software for Window Film and PPF, 3M Pattern Software are examples of window tint plotter softwares that offer a free trial; there are many more.

From what I see the whole paying for some companies software and then the subscription kinda nullifies the saving of time/labor costs. Is there an underground shareware site for window tinters trying to save a buck or pull one over on "the man?"
Yea. I have had the same thoughts. The idea of paying $150 a month is crazy. I found a place that only charged $7 a download and they stopped charging you after $150 for that month. It was also only $500 for the software. Its the cheapest one around I have seen and the guy said there was vehicles dating back to the 60's of some models. I don't know how true this was or how good the quality is, but its the cheapest one I have seen anywhere. Most companies want $2500 for the software and $150 a month to use it. I think thats kinda ridiculas.
Basically what your saying is plotter and tint cut software is only for high volume shops? Screw the little guy! I wish I could pull $300 out of my local customers pockets for a basic 4 door. I f I were to give them a $300 quote they wouldn't come to me, and they would probably tell their freinds not to come to me.
How about answering this question for me. If I submit to "the man" and pay for the software and pay for the subscription, can I save the templates that I download or do I have to re-download it every time I want to cut a window? Do I have to always have an internet connection to be able to use it?
