Estimating and Quotation Management
Generate and track all customers or prospects for quotation (RFQ's) from the time of receipt until an order is placed. Create estimates and get quotes more quickly with more accurate pricing and lead times.
Generate cost-based estimates for operations or materials considering a particular Bill of Materials (BOM) or previous jobs. Pull parts or modify them quickly and easily create a new one. Calculate material, subcontract, labor, and burden costs for multiple quantities.
Create RFQ requests to trigger buyers to solicit suppliers for the pricing of materials. Use the quotation management system to identify critical information about a part and identify it has been quoted, bought, or sold before. And accurately predict pipeline activities by tracking the confidence levels by quote line. Increase the efficiency and accuracy with the ability to quickly transfer quote information to a sales order or a job.
Order Management drives the Epicor system. From the time an order is entered it is tracked through final shipment and production order fulfillment for on-demand customer satisfaction. Connect your sales and manufacturing processes with Order Job Wizard which will generate appropriate jobs for new orders in a single step.
