Quantum’s vendor quoting solution automates the sourcing process. The faster your purchasing agent can process an order, the faster you can realize revenue.
Our vendor quoting functionality provides a tool for purchasing agents to locate sources for part procurement and send out requests for quotes to multiple vendors, including multiple lines. Once the responses come in, they may be imported or added directly into the vendor quote creating an informative and invaluable historical database. Vendor quotes that may be automatically converted to purchase orders eliminating manual data input errors.
In addition, it provides a mechanism for assigning RFQ responsibilities to your entire purchasing department. Needs may be reviewed in purchase management and assigned to employees via a vendor quote record. From that record, purchasing agents may prepare vendor RFQs, record availability and pricing and ultimately create purchase orders.
Vendor and contact information is automatically defaulted from pre-set profiles, including fax numbers and e-mail addresses enabling you to send quotes quickly via these methods.
Within this module you may select vendors from the existing company management file or you may import vendors from an ILS file. Preferred vendors may be set up from existing data and accessed through the vendor quote for quick and efficient selection.
COMING SOON - Seamless integration with ILS for Parts Sourcing. This new functionality allow you to query ILS from directly inside the Quantum application, and will allow you to download vendor information real time.
