Elequote - expressive quotes with individual quote catalogs
Elequote generates formal quotes as well as individual "quote
catalogs" explaining in detail the quoted products and
replacing the previously used printed product catalogs and data
Currently, formal quotes on technical products are frequently
accompanied by printed product catalogs or data sheets defining
in detail the quoted products. This is all replaced by Elequote,
which uses the content of product catalogs stored in Elestore
to individually generate a "quotes catalog" to complement
the formal part of the quote.
Autonomous processing of quotes and orders without ERP
Elequote can be used autonomously to enter and process quotes
similar to entering orders, because Elequote comprises of a
full order database and order processing system.
Elequote is fully independent of any ERP system and well suitable
for use by your sales people, distribution partners or dealers
who can all use the content of Elestore in their Elequote software.
Quotes are technically treated as a special form of orders
and they are stored in the order database of Elequote. They
can even be converted into orders and then handed over to your
ERP or order processing system. Quote objects as well as order
can also be transferred regularly and automatically to your
main office and collected there in a central database or transferred
to your ERP.
