Order management software for QuickBooks® to… Quote it
Most companies handle quoting separately from ordering and don’t have a clearly defined process for converting the sales quote to the sales order – a critical step in the process for ensuring customer satisfaction, a costly duplication of efforts with re-entry into a new system, and a chance for errors to occur.
Acctivate automates the quote and sales order process with tools to handle both with a 1 click conversion process when the quote becomes an order – even for orders with complex components, parts or configurations.
Quick Quote enables a quick item look up to check inventory for availability and to determine customer pricing based on an entered quantity, % discount, the customer’s contract pricing and other pricing variables.
Create formal Sales Quotes from one screen, with automatic credit check, then print and/or email the quote from Acctivate as a PDF file.
At anytime during the quote or sales order, if additional inventory, product, warehouse, credit, or customer service information is required, Acctivate’s drill down and drill around capabilities allows the user to view the required information without leaving the system.
All information related to quotes and orders on one screen with drill down.
