Within the process of quote generation, an efficient software should relieve the sales department. This software is especially relevant in complex requests, frequently encountered for example in the manufacturing of mechanical engineering and plant construction products. For consulting intensive products, offers can then be created faster and clearer, because existing price lists and material catalogs can be accessed directly. This enables an effective quotation management.
By using a software tool to create quotations, the sales department gains time in the quotation costing, which is also an advantage in global competition. The quote generation should also be available in different languages, currencies, and print formats. Existing data of an integrated product configuration, for example country-specific measuring units, must be considered.
