QLM Sourcing and Quoting for Industrial

Solutions Built for the Industrial Sector

Business activity in the industrial sector is characterized by a relatively volatile marketplace impacted by global economic forces and longer term trends. This environment along with the scale and costs involved in many industrial projects results in a lengthy and complex quotation management process. This dynamic model translates from the OEMs to the rest of the supply chain, making an integrated system and process key to a company’s success.

Whether your company is operating as an OEM or material Supplier, the requirements to respond to a quote in this industry, and what you ask for from your suppliers continues to expand in form and content.
