The Local Automation Quote Generator is the most revolutionary of the premium features. This web-based quoting program simultaneously connects to your accounting database, customer database, and web portal (if applicable) in order to help you generate accurate quotes (with lead times!) in a matter of seconds.

As you begin entering part numbers, our quoting program instantly connects to your web portal (if applicable)... logs in... and then extracts the real-time price and availability data for each part number.    Yes - we really can do that!

We also connect to your accounting database and check to see if your customer has ordered any of the quoted parts in the past. If so, our quoting program instantly shows you the recently ordered prices. This ensures that you use consistent, high-margin pricing.

What does all this mean? Your staff can now issue accurate quotes (with lead times!) in a matter of seconds. They no longer have to login to your online portal... or keep track of Excel / PDF files... or manually sift through your accounting database to compare quoted prices against previously ordered prices. Quotes can be created in seconds, and it is virtually impossible to quote inaccurate or out-dated prices!
