M1 Estimating & Quoting gives you he ability to quote multiple items with quantity price breaks and will simplify and consolidate your quote management!
M1 customers can efficiently generate new quotations using the following methods:
- Cost Plus Markup
- Cost Plus Margin
- Standard Quote Rates
- Pricing Lists
- Manual Pricing
When the quotation is complete, simply select either print, email or fax to have a professional looking quotation sent to your customer.
When your quotation is successful, all your workings are transferred through the order so there are no delays in getting the order into production.
Quotations can be automatically:
M1 takes the material costs, labor requirements (hours and rates) and subcontract service costs to develop an internal cost profile for the item they are quoting.
M1 displays precisely what each of the four categories amount to -
- Material Labor
If the item being quoted has multiple assemblies, each subassembly will also have its cost broken out separately.
Time is a valuable commodity, M1 allows you to be quick and responsive to your customer’s request for quotation
Copy previous BOMs
Add materials to your quote without ever having to add them to your part master! Just copy the Bills of Material (BOM) from other parts, quotes or jobs. This not only saves time, drawing on your history also improves accuracy.
Capable to Promise (CTP)
Your M1 system will review your production schedule and inventory levels to determine the best delivery dates possible. Our solution can use Forward, Backward, Finite and Infinite scheduling to help you determine these dates. Leads time will be generated for each quantity quoted.
Multiple items and price breaks
M1 can quote multiple quantities per line item. Each quoted quantity calculates cost, amortizing set-up and summarizes labor, overhead, sub-contact and materials.
Quotations can include commissions for your sales staff. M1 also keeps track of the commissions and pays them at invoice or payment.
