Generate quotes directly in Excel and get to market faster with a proven, industry-specific solution.
Today, how much time and effort does your sales team put into generating a quote after a BOM or RFQ arrives? At the very least, he or she has to obtain pricing and availability data (in your system of record or from your suppliers), apply customer-specific and volume discounts, format the information, and send the quote to the potential buyer. That represents hours of work, at a minimum. And with so many manual steps, you are making mistakes and not getting to your customer fast enough.
Not anymore. Introducing Orbweaver Inform, an automated quote generation and support solution designed specifically for the electronic parts industry. With Orbweaver Inform, pricing and availability data is automatically captured and imported into Excel, custom markup and margin calculations are applied, and quotes are formatted for buyer review. Hours of work becomes minutes, giving your sales people the time they need to perform value-add, high-skill work.
