Supplier quotes provide the means for requesting prices from various suppliers. After a quotation document is prepared it is sent or emailed to the supplier. Quotes can be for a one-off quantity, a quantity to be purchased over the next number of months or for ongoing price arrangements. Following the receipt of prices from the supplier the document is amended manually or via a spreadsheet. Prices can be discarded, used to update supplier price records or to build a supplier contract that will be drawn down against over time. Reminders can be created via Abel CRM that will notify the user when to review the quote status in the future.
