KalcTeq releases quotation management application for manufacturers
02 June 2011
KalcTeq's latest manufacturing software application, KalcTeq Quotations, is aimed at improving the management of quotations for manufacturers, particularly quotation lead time. The application provides a completely customisable set of attributes, with pricing strategies, cost calculations, terms and conditions and other information that make your business unique, made transparent and available as a personalised quotation system.
‘Super-users’ can customise quotation workflows and implement an approval system that ensures customer service standards are maintained to the highest level.
KalcTeq Quotations is able to maintain its own product database, or it can be integrated witho multiple sources of product data, such as ERP, e-catalogue or CAD packages. The product database holds everything that is important to your cost and quotation calculations. It understands raw material consumption, manufacturing costs, packaging requirements and currency conversions, ensuring the profitability of the quotation.
KalcTeq Quotations does not stop working after a users initial data-entry. The system can stream line your communication lines by providing your sales staff with the information they need when they need it, in the format they need it in. KalcTeq Quotations can provide users with follow-up reminders to help sales staff to chase and monitor communications with a client, ensuring that you don’t miss out on potential orders.
Customisable sales analysis reports, quotation documents and email integration mean manual entry paperwork is reduced considerably and quotation lead time is improved dramatically. The system also maintains a complete change history and version control, allowing you to analyse historical quotation success and other key performance indicators.
Once the customer confirms an order, a quotation can be seamlessly integrated to existing business systems, such as SAP to start the sales order process.
