Quotation and order processing systems
Custom software for quotation and order processing
Making a sale at the right price for both buyer and seller is the lifeblood of any commercial enterprise. A custom quotation and order processing system will simplify this process.
Preparing accurate quotes can be a time-consuming process with pricing determined by diverse aspects. Factors might include order volume, the fluctuating price of raw materials from different suppliers, delivery timeframes, or products built to order with complex customisation. The nature of the relationship with each client may also affect pricing, such as longevity, brand loyalty, client type or market sector.
A quotation and order processing system that reflects the way your business operates will ensure you remain ahead of your competitors. It will incorporate all variations that may be relevant, and will monitor success on an ongoing basis. Microsoft Access is flexible, cost-effective and easy to use for this purpose.
PDA Hardware Integration with Access database
A business which supplies retail outlets with farm produce was finding it difficult to keep pace with increasing demand for their products as well as the greater flexibility required by their clients. Moving from a manual rounds system to a computerised one, using a ruggadized PDA integrating with an order processing system, has significantly reduced the administrative workload, and made it far easier to handle ad hoc changes to deliveries.

Factory Floor Job Management system with order processing
With prospects and clients stored in separate databases, and order processing handled by yet another system, our client needed an administration database that would combine all aspects of their business. We provided a system that handles quotations, order processing, through factory floor job management, to invoicing.

Manufacturing/Production Support, Expert System & Web Application
We developed a custom manufacturing and production support system for our client to manage the production and support of PCBs. An Expert System was incoroporated to support the quoting process, and a custom web application enables suppliers to report the manufacturing status for efficient monitoring of orders.

Custom Live Auction Management with Invoicing
We developed a Live Auction Management System customised to handle the specific requirements of Tayler and Fletcher, particularly with regard to farm machinery auctions as well as hay and straw sales.
The new system manages the complete process including compiling the catalogue, calculating commission and bidder premiums, generating bidder invoices, printing vendor statements, and balancing the sales ledger at the end of the auction.

Microsoft Access Job Management System with Office Automation and Integration
We used Microsoft Access to develop this Job Managements System, incorporating Document Management and office automation functionality. It handles all stages from receiving an enquiry, through quoting/tender, to job completion. A solid database model ensures quick and easy access to all information, with traceability throughout the entire process.

Project Management, Contact Management and Quotation System
A comprehensive database system was already in place for this primary sector service company. Developed in-house, and covering most aspects of their business, manual processes were needed to transfer data between different parts of the system. Our client required the software to be fully integrated so all areas would run seamlessly together.
