Requests For Quotations

Sometimes, you might work with suppliers and products where costs vary so you can’t have fixed costs stored in your items list. Other times, you might have more than one supplier from whom you buy specific products or materials. Maybe you just want to secure better prices for a specific customer project where you need to get a competitive edge or improve your profit margin.

Either way, our Requests for Quotations module (or ‘RFQ’ module) will let you manage all of this without the time-consuming calls and emails.


Send quote requests for products or services

With the RFQ module, you can request a quotation to one or more suppliers at the click of a button, and track your suppliers’ responses within the system, while keeping the RFQ record linked to the specific quotation or job from which it came.
