Estimation can be one of the most complex and integral parts of a manufacturing operation – and one where you can’t afford to skimp with the “bare minimum”. Bizowie’s estimation module is built with customizability in mind, so that the system follows your processes, not a one-size-fits-all boilerplate.
- Tailored workflow guides the estimator from reserving an estimate to creating a sales order
- Automatic creation of inventory items, BOMs, routing sheets based on estimate
- 250+ level estimates support on-the-fly subassemblies, multi-level costs, and roll-ups
- Attach specifications, RFQs, drawings, etc. for easy recall
- Bizowie Calculators™ function allows development of arbitrary cost/materials calculation forms
- Rapid quoting for stock items – no need to recreate BOMs
