ActiveQuote

ActiveQuote™ is a full quote system embedded within Aligni that allows you to:

  • Intelligently compile an RFQ (request for quote) from parts in your database.
  • Choose which vendors (and their contacts) receive the RFQ.
  • Email a private ticket to each contact to view the RFQ.
  • Receive completed quotes from vendors and discuss them within Aligni.
  • View the quotes from the most relevant pages in your database for accurate costing and purchasing.
In order to submit quotes to vendors, you will need to have the following information in your database.

  • Manufacturers and vendors need to be associated through linecards.
  • Vendors must have contacts associated with them.
  • Contacts you wish to send RFQs to must have valid email addresses and must have the “Can Receive RFQs” flag set.
