What is price quoting?
Price quoting is the process of delivering a fixed price for concrete products or services. Another name for it is “quotation”. A quotation can be a written document or verbal communication and is valid for a certain period of time, for example, 30 days. Once two or more parties accept contractual terms and agree to the numbers, an invoice can be sent and paid for.
Quoting a price: what to expect & what you will find
Usually, a proposal quoting a price for services will start with the word “Quote” or “Quotation” (It should be placed at the top of the page). Once you’ve titled your document, you need to write a quotation body; give a full description of each product or service and pricing for each item. Add a footer; write the total amount of all list points, taxes, and the document’s period of validity. Sometimes it’s also good to add a call-to-action for better customer engagement.
Why must traditional price quoting be replaced with more modern, automated methods?
Usually, buyers initiate the process of quoting a price. First, they create a request asking the vendor to calculate the estimated costs for specific services and/or products. Then, the vendor reviews it, clarifies expectations, and sends back an offer. At that point, the buyer can request changes in the proposal: add or delete items, negotiate for a lower price or anything else for that matter. More often than not, this negotiation process takes place in email, with each party sending them back and forth. Finally, when the buyer accepts the pricing and terms, the parties sign a contract and proceed with payment. In the end, the vendor initiates internal communications to provide services or deliver goods established by the executed contract.
As we can see, quoting prices isn’t a fast process. Plus, it requires a high level of coordination, team collaboration, and a lot of time dedicated to preparing documents. This is especially tough when there are several quotes taking place at the same time. In combination with monotonous tasks that accompany all negotiation processes, the risk of human error is high. And every mistake can cost your business a client, which damages reputation, leading to both short term and long term financial losses.
So, what’s the best way to solve the problems related to long, monotonous, and ineffective price quoting procedures? Implement automation.
How does automation solve problems related to price quoting?
Automation eliminates time-consuming tasks
Avoid the routine. Free your salespeople from creating orders, checking prices or the availability of items, and so on. Give them more free time for communication instead of printing papers. Let them do things that really matter. The more productive conversations your representatives have with customers — the faster deals get closed and profit accumulated. Automation allows you to build efficient internal communication where all records are updated automatically, and people have access to the required information all the time, from anywhere. Eliminate the time-consuming tasks that take up your sales team’s valuable attention.
Automation delivers accuracy
Increase accuracy. Prevent mistakes like incorrect pricing, customer names, dates, etc. with paperless automation. Automated workflows only require you to add information correctly ONCE. From there on out, the system will add data to the correct locations automatically. If you use CRM systems, this feature is even more beneficial. Avoid losing crucial data, documents, or sending typos.
Automation makes tracking edits and changes simpler
Simplify tracking edits and changes. Use audit logs and analytics widgets to show you where your time-consuming tasks and bottlenecks are in your processes. Once you know where they are, you can remove them and always have accurate, up-to-date information for each step of every price quoting workflow. Get rid of the unknown and track team activity and decreases the risk of losing valuable time or customers.
