Quote/Order Entry

The Quote/Order Entry system enables quick and accurate processing of quotes, sales orders and invoices. The system streamlines the entire process of generating an order, shipping the material, and invoicing your customer.

Quote Entry

  • Check stock and credit, enter a quote, turn it into an order and create the purchase order for any buyouts with one simple procedure.
  • Create accurate quotations by rolling up additional prices and costs for processing, freight, and material handling charges on item quotes.
  • Fax or Email quotes direct from any workstation with Compusource’s MC Fax & Email modules.

Flexible Entries

  • Calculate theoretical pieces, length, and weight automatically when entering items, dimensions, and quantities.
  • Create special comments and shop instructions, as well as allocated material, heat numbers, and location on shop orders.
  • Override default units of measure and automatically recalculate, quantities, prices and costs based on the new unit of measure.
  • Interfaces with the MC Fab module, which assists salespeople in quoting/selling virtually any shape that can be defined by an equation (e.g. circles, rings, ring segments, trepanned bar, etc.). Includes userdefinable processing matrix to automatically calculate costs and sell prices for processing charges (e.g. sawing, burning, freight, etc.).
  • Create cut lists for processing orders that calculate material required (including Kerf-loss) for the quantity and dimensions ordered.


  • Updates other interfaced modules like Inventory, Accounts Receivable, General Ledger, Sales Analysis.
