The estimating and quoting software component of VISUAL Enterprise allow you to create professional and comprehensive quotations, determine realistic delivery dates based on material and resource availability, and turn quotes into sales orders. You can create quotes quickly and easily by copying from another quote, an existing work order, or a bill of material, then modify the new quote to match the customer specifications. The manufacturing cost estimating software includes materials, labor, burden, and outside services when performing estimated cost calculations. When you receive a contract, you can use the existing quote to create both a sales and a work order.
Lilly Software’s manufacturing estimating software solutions let you quickly and easily create, view, and modify quotes, using a graphical display and point-and-click technology. You can choose your quote price source, either engineering specification, quote, or standard prices.
Integrated functionality of the manufacturing cost estimating software allows you to easily copy quotes from multiple sources, including existing quotes, work orders, or bills of materials, then make any necessary modifications. You can separate markup costs for material, services, labor, burden, and GSA.
A powerful feature of manufacturing estimating software is the ability to create “what if” scenarios that allow you to analyze and verify material and capacity availability to help determine an order’s delivery date, then confirm the date to shop resources.
The reporting functionality of VISUAL Enterprise’s quoting software lets you access proforma, quote, quote log, and engineering cost reports, and generates vendor RFQs (requests for quote) automatically.
