M1 Purchasing RFQ (Request for Quotation) provides an effective tool for purchasing personnel to request quotes on the supply of materials or outside services from one or more suppliers. Each RFQ may include multiple lines, with each line requesting pricing on multiple quantities.
Materials and Sub-contract Services
Request pricing on both raw materials and outside services from both quotes and jobs as well as non-stock parts.
Pull from Quote or Job
Pull all or selected parts or services from a quote or a job into an RFQ.
Save valuable time by copying the contents of one RFQ into a new RFQ.
Fax or e-mail your RFQs directly to your suppliers. Save time by not printing these documents any more.
Automatically create purchase orders from the contents of an RFQ. Multiple purchase orders may be generated from a single RFQ.
