PROLIM Quote Process Management is an in-bound quote process management solution for configure-to-order and engineer-to-order companies who need to introduce engineering business rules and intelligence into the customer order process. Ensures better quotes, repeatable processes and higher profitability on customer projects. Quoting complex products traditionally requires a large amount of manual effort from multiple groups, especially engineering. Bottlenecks develop when significant product knowledge is required to create a quote.
Traditional pricing and cost estimation techniques don’t work well for complex custom products. With the Rule stream Engineer-to-Order solution, the true costs of manufacturing and delivering a custom product are automatically factored in at the time of quotation. This eliminates cost estimation guesswork and subsequently the need for price padding to safeguard profitability. With accurate cost knowledge, unprofitable quotes can be avoided and padding can be avoided, resulting in more wins from more competitive pricing.
