Benefits of Bellwether Purchasing Software Request for quotation
There are two basic methods of entry to get the process started: one is to generate the Request for Quotation, or RFQ, from an existing requisition; the other is enter the items you’d like to receive bids on and select the vendors you you want to invite into the bidding process.
From here the software takes over by submitting the RFQ to the designated vendors by fax or email. You can also opt to print the RFQ and submit manually. At any point during the process you can modify your RFQ and resubmit the changes to all the vendors. As quotes are received you enter them back into the software for comparison and analysis of all costs, discounts, shipping charges, and length of time until the order can be filled. View the analysis online or print to help you make a more informed decision with all the information outlined for you.
