Supplier Quotes

Extend ERP automation to the beginning of the purchasing process

Typical purchasing systems automate little more than purchase order generation, an activity found at the end of the purchasing cycle. GLOVIA G2 Supplier Quotes extends the reach of automation to the beginning of the purchasing cycle by maintaining, tracking and reporting request-for-quote (RFQ) and supplier-quote information.

Efficient RFQ and Supplier Quote Generation

RFQs can be generated for an unlimited number of suppliers or prospective suppliers. In the case of existing suppliers, information is automatically pulled from master files. In the case of prospective suppliers, a supplier quote is created by combining existing RFQ information with the supplier's responses. Supplier quotes may be entered directly or indirectly by entering a supplier's response to an RFQ. In either case, requests for multiple prices based on quantity discounts gives purchasing agents the information they need to make smarter buying decisions.

Full Tracking of Supplier Responses, Including No-bids

Inquiry and reporting functions provide up-to-the minute tracking of all active RFQs and supplier quotes. Extensive history files offer valuable data for performing price, delivery, and quality comparisons. If a supplier or prospective supplier elects not to bid, a reason can be entered with any additional comments for future reference.

Optionally Converts Supplier Quotes to Purchase Orders

All or selected parts of a supplier quote can be converted directly into a purchase order. If the winning bid is from a new supplier, information is automatically pulled from supplier master files. For the sake of efficiency, supplier quotes may be optionally closed during the conversion process. All closed supplier quotes are maintained in history files for future reporting.
