A request for quote is a standard business process that an organization will use when they want to buy a specific product or service. Typically, a company creates and issues Quotation Requests, and vendors offer price quotes.
We developed the Quotation Request integration for MAG B1 to allow the SAP B1 employee to interact with customers directly from the M2 eCommerce page.
As we were building the integration we kept in mind the following:
Exact specifications for the product you want to buy, including quantities
A request that the vendor itemize costs so you can compare bids
A deadline for submitting responses
A timetable for delivering the product or service
Check out the options included in this integration with this scenario :
➤ Customers can easily create quotation request in SAP B1 directly from Magento 2, before proceeding to checkout from the cart.
➤ The customer can add a comment before Proceeding to place the quote.
➤ You give a hint of the discount percentage that they can receive for each product to encourage them to increase the quantity.
➤ The customers can easily edit the price per product and update the request before place it.
➤ Customers can check the status of their Requests in My Quotations field.
➤ Customers can view the estimated shipment costs, taxes and the total price.
➤ Sales quotation well be created automatically in SAP B1, where the employee can view and edit the prices, check the notes, and update the Quote with a validity date.
➤ Customer will choose to approve and proceed to cart or discard the quotation pending approval.
