AutoQuotes with ERP integration
Quoting Software for Foodservice Equipment Suppliers
AutoQuotes quoting software streamlines the foodservice equipment supply process. Catering equipment manufacturers and suppliers use AutoQuotes for rapid quote to installation lead times, with reduced administration and zero margin for error.
AutoQuotes UK quoting software, formerly CaterQuotes, is designed specifically for the foodservice industry, providing access to the most comprehensive product database. Equipment manufacturers upload product catalogues and price lists to the AutoQuotes foodservice database, adding to almost one million SKUs. When a request for quotation is issued by a potential client, such as a UK gastro-pub chain, installers like Lloyd Catering provide a quotation using AutoQuotes quote software.
Every kitchen and food preparation setup is unique, designed to meet both food hygiene legislation and individual business processes. Equipment suppliers are able to quickly build a quotation bespoke to the client’s unique specification and pricing agreement. AutoQuotes quoting software provides access to detailed product information, including weight, dimensions, CAD, images, cost, sell, and buy prices, from which to build a quote.
Once a quotation is accepted, the quotation is transferred from AutoQuotes to the core business management system, such as NetSuite and Sage ERP. The quote is automatically converted into a sales order with full project management oversight.
Rapid results with AutoQuotes:
Quote Systems with ERP Integration
Quote systems extend beyond the RFQ stage via software integration. Upon acceptance, a quote is automatically converted into a sales order, via integration with core business management software. Removing the need to manually input a sales order not only reduces administration, but it also eliminates the margin for error.
Next, equipment is ordered via automatic purchase order creation. Buying and selling prices transfer seamlessly between AutoQuotes quoting software
and the core ERP.
Integration ensures the equipment supplier can link sales and purchase orders to projects. As a result, the entire project, from RFQ to installation, is fast and accurate.
