Features and Benefits
Pulls contact information from your contact management software:
QuoteWerks integrates seamlessly with leading contact management software such as ACT, Outlook, Outlook BCM, and SalesLogix. This integration allows you to start quoting instantly using the lead and customer information already in your existing contact management software. You will never have to re-type your customer information, and no importing is required! In addition to retrieving contact information from your contact manager, our innovative DataLink feature automatically pulls almost any other information from your contact manager into the quote.
"Success with CRM Consulting has clients use QuoteWerks to enhance the quote by pulling in contact information such as a pricing class, customer account number and Geocoding into the quote" -- Dick Wooden
Using the Quickbooks link you can also retrieve lead and customer information from your accounting software. If you do not use one of the above mentioned contact managers, you can use the built-in contact database that comes with QuoteWerks.
Creates and maintains quotes of your products and services:
QuoteWerks allows you to quote products and services. You can enter information directly into the quote "on-the-fly," and you can set up a list of products and services that you commonly use in your product databases. You can set up a separate product database for each vendor that you purchase from and organize the products and services within each database using multiple-level folders. If you already have lists of products and services, you can import them into the QuoteWerks product databases using the QuoteWerks Product Import Wizard.
Having an integrated product and services database allows you to accurately quote directly from your catalog. The ability to enhance the product catalog with additional fields such as full product descriptions and images make the quote "POP."
Uses products and services stored in other programs (or uses built-in product database):
The Professional and Corporate Edition of QuoteWerks has the ability to link to a variety of external product data sources including any ODBC compliant data source (such as MS SQL, MS Access, Oracle, etc.) This enables you to build quotes by selecting products or services from these databases in addition to the QuoteWerks product/service databases.
The powerful bundling features add groups of products to your quote with a single click. This can save a tremendous amount of time.
Using bundles (kits) ensures that you will never forget to include an item in the quote!
Customizes quote layouts:
Use the QuoteWerks visual layout designer to format the layout of your quotes. All companies have different formats for presenting the quote to their customer. The built-in QuoteWerks visual layout designer gives you complete flexibility in designing the look of your printed quote.
You can choose which information you would like to include in the quote and which information you would like to not include in the quote. You can insert company logos, pictures, lines, and boxes. You can set background colors, font colors, fonts, alignment--pretty much anything! If you prefer to include a picture of each line item in the quote, you can use the layout designer to control where you locate the picture, what size the picture will be, etc.
On top of all this functionality, the QuoteWerks print layout designer also supports the creation of custom formulas. You can create formulas that calculate lease payments based on a number of months, and the total sale amount of the quote. You can create formulas that print a special message like "You are a valued customer" if the sale amount is over $1000. You can create formulas that calculate a 50% down payment to display on the quote. You can create almost any solution using this formula functionality! The layout designer is very powerful, flexible, and easy to use.
QuoteWerks comes with a default print layout for quotes, orders, invoices, sales orders, and purchase orders.
You can modify these existing print layouts, and/or create any print layout format you would like, such as a work orders, packing slips, etc. The number of different print layouts you can create is limitless. Again, you have full control over what the end result will look like.
Creates and manages quote revisions:
QuoteWerks supports revising. This feature enables you to open a saved quote, make changes, and then save it as the next revision. QuoteWerks will then automatically save the quote with a new quote number that has either a numeric or an alpha suffix (like -01 or -A), and will update the contact management software links to refer to the most recent revision. When converting quotes to orders, all revisions are now automatically flagged as superseded. You can easily view the history of all revisions giving you a complete overview and control over all the revisions.
Defines your pricing strategies:
In all, QuoteWerks supports 9 different ways to price your products and services. Enter price manually, gross margin, markup from cost, volume-based, customer-based price levels, etc.
Other key features include:
Capability to refresh a quote with the latest and best prices - when a quote comes off "hold."
Flexible line items to provide subtotals of grouped items, discount line items, "hide price" attribute, and show optional line items.
E-Mailing or faxing your quotes.
Copying and pasting groups of products.
Sharing/synchronizing quotes between offices.
