Customized quotations in Manufacturing. Processes to speed them up.

Blog: Flokzu

Customized quotations in Manufacturing can be a headache for companies in that industry. Manufacturing non-standard products is often difficult, involving leaving the standard operation and production chain. Because of this, estimating prices, delivery dates, and sending special quotes for customized products requires collaboration between several areas. These workflows can take much more time than expected, generating cost overruns and eventually losing the sales opportunity.

In this article, we present a solution to this problem that has proven to be very effective. The fundamental idea is to have a formal, traceable process with due dates in its tasks, to ensure that customized quotes are correctly built and sent in time.

Customized quotations in Manufacturing

The basic solution we propose to better serve the requests for custom quotes is:

Scheme of attention to personalized quotations in Manufacturing through a public form and a process to attend them.

Use your own website form

If you already have a form on your website to receive a quotation request, it can be integrated with the Flokzu process. In the existing form, you just need to send the information of the fields to Flokzu. To do this, Flokzu provides a Public API, which allows you to start a new process instance (in this case a new customized quotation).

Embed the public form in your website

Another possibility is to embed Flokzu’s public form on your own website. When the public form is configured, a standard HTML code is generated, which can be inserted into any web page. In this way, the entire identity and functionalities of your website are preserved, and at the same time, the functionality of the public form is obtained immediately.

The process of issuing a custom quote

Each manufacturing company has a different process for issuing customized quotations. As such, it is vital that you are able to adjust the process to your particular needs.
