Calculate and automatically update allowances, blend and loading tools, auto update lists (times, vehicles, line items). View "differences" to easily see exactly what the Assessor has changed.
Ongoing Active Development
Most packages are stagnant and will never deliver the major improvements in efficiency that your shop will be forced to achieve. Major updates make everything harder!
At Quotimation we are under active professional development and we continue to improve.
All the things you would expect to see in a modern quoting package.
But we already use another product ...
It is not hard to find people who are disappointed in their existing quoting package. It may be the "help desk from hell" or maybe the last major update made everything harder than ever. Maybe the brochures are a lot more slick that the product.
Call us for a demonstration, and as an experienced user you will be in the perfect position to compare. No risk. No pressure.
Note that changing your quoting package is a lot quicker, more straight forward, and causes a lot less grief most people expect, and quickly boosts office productivity.
We currently don't use a quoting package ...
It so happens that Quotimation is quick to learn, easy to use, and powerful, so it is the ideal system for anyone new to professional quoting, and is the essential system for anyone starting out.
We are not anywhere near you ...
We have customers across the country from big cities to small towns. If you have a broadband connection we can easily demo, install, upgrade, and provide excellent ongoing support.
