SYSPRO’s Quoting and Estimating capabilities allow you to create professional and comprehensive quotations. A highly flexible interface provides you with all the information you need to give your customers timely quotes/estimates. The Quotations and Estimates allow for the creation of a quote/estimate for either an existing customer or prospect or for either an existing inventory item or a non-inventory item. SYSPRO lets you track changes by using revision numbers, and all supporting documentation involved can be attached directly to the Quotation.
Quotation and Estimating produces a cost estimate that includes material, labor, burden, and outside services. As more and more services are being outsourced to gain manufacturing and cost efficiencies, these costs continue to be an important part of your quoting process. SYSPRO’s Quoting and Estimating gives you the ability to incorporate vendor related service costs and can be marked up as a part of your estimate.
