ECi M1 | Purchasing RFQ

Purchasing RFQ


M1’s request for quotation module provides an efficient tool for purchasing personnel to manage the process of requesting quotes from suppliers for materials or outside services from one or more suppliers.  Each RFQ can contain multiple lines and multiple quantity breaks.  You can pull all or a selected group of parts from a quote or a job into an RFQ, no duplication of entries, no errors.  With M1’s integration tools you can fax or email your quotations directly from M1 so you save time and money printing.  From your RFQ’s no duplication of entries just create a purchase order directly from your RFQ.


Materials & subcontract services

Request pricing on both raw materials and outside services


Pull from Quote or Job

Pull all or selected parts or services from a quote or a job into an RFQ.


Create PO

Automatically create purchase orders from the contents of an RFQ.  Multiple purchase orders can be generated from a single RFQ.

RFQ Worksheet

Use the worksheet to review the part and supplier information you have entered, as well as any quoted prices you have recorded.


Status Report

Print the RFQ status report when you need to determine which RFQ’s are complete and those which are still outstanding.
