New Q&E Module
Macolaís brand-new Quoting and Estimating
application lets you make decisions while you still have the customer on
the phone. Whether for an
existing customer or a prospective customer, for inventory items and
non-inventory items, Macolaís Q&E module provides you the
flexibility you need.
Quotes and estimates can possess any
combination of material, labor, overhead, outside processing, and
service costs. Q&E is fully integrated with the Macola Suite
interfacing with Order Entry, Production Order Processing, and Shop
Floor Control. Furthermore,
material costs can be calculated by copying an itemís Bill of Material
or by manually adding material costs. Material, labor, overhead, and outside processing costs can
all be marked-up as well.
Q&E makes manufacturing and purchasing
history available to the estimator during the quoting process.
What-If Multi-Quantity Cost Analysis in a spreadsheet interface
is also at the estimatorís fingertips.
Once the customer has accepted an estimate,
the quote/estimate can be converted into both a sales order and
manufacturing order. Option-ally,
new items can be created as well as new BOMís and routings.
Macolaís Q&E module is a flexible,
user-friendly, dynamic application that further assures Macola is the
Software Youíll Never Outgrow. Q&E
will be available in a demo release with the Progression 7.5.103 update
due out in October 2000. Call
