Quoting Features

Users may setup pricing structures for all types of boards manufactured, i.e. Double Sided, Multilayer, Flex etc. etc. Pricing can be set differently for prototype and production boards.  Base pricing definition may be set by panel cost, cost per square inch, fixed price, minimum price or manual quote.  Multi-layer board prices are automatically derived by the system based on user input factors. Price adjustments for lead times may be defined by the user for any multiple of Hours, Days or Weeks. Users may define price adders to accommodate all items added to boards, such as gold fingers, SMOBC, etc.  Adders increment the board base price based on a user selected calculation method. Tooling charges may be defined for each board type and size of board to create tooling charge defaults. Users may see on-line board base price, price of adders and tooling, and extended board price. Board configuration can be changed with price changes shown immediately. Prices can be overridden by the user. When you like the quote, a hard copy can be emailed to the customer. The system will generate a quote work sheet that can be used by management to determine the appropriate panel size, lead time and pricing for the customer. Once your customer places a order you can Email and/or print a complete sales order document. When the quote becomes an order, just indicate so in JQS and a job number will be assigned and the job is placed in the Job Trac System ready for tracking. Several reports are available to help in maintaining your quotes and provide valuable management information of the status of quotes in the system. Multiple quantities can be entered and the system will calculate quantity break pricing for multiple panel sizes and lead times. Users can then select which quantity/lead times to print on the quote. Prices can be manually adjusted by the user. Default and customer specific text messages can be defined and will print on the quote. Email Quotes directly to your customers, print, fax or save as pdf files for later use. Links directly to KwickFit Panelization Software. You can get a trial version of KwickFit at www.micromeg.com.
