Currently, requests for quotes are managed manually via disjointed processes, resulting in significant time lost and increasing the risk of errors. webQuote is a web service made available to users of the almaQuote software, which feeds into it automatically. webQuote centralizes and facilitates communication between ordering parties and sub-contractors, while automating preparation and processing of a quote.
The webQuote service gives ordering parties their dedicated web space to submit requests for quotes to their sub-contractors. The request arrives automatically in almaQuote, enabling the sub-contractor to process it and send back the price proposal via the web. At any time the web user can consult the status of their requests for quotes and communicate with the sub-contractor.
webQuote benefits from all the power of the almaQuote calculation engine and the most advanced web technologies. It is a new service that simplifies communication and streamlines the quote management process, right up to acceptance.
