New Delhi: Adapt Software IAP India Private Limited, the Indian arm of US-based CRM major ADAPT Software Applications, Inc., has introduced a quotation management system for the small and medium businesses (SME )segment in India.

Earlier it had introduced a CRM application and customer service portal, designed and customised for Indian SMEs.

According to the company the new software is designed to assemble orders quickly and generate quality looking sales quotes and proposals on-demand for complex products and thus enhance the proposal and quoting management practices as it minimises the iterative work and the associated time-wastage.

Called Quotation Pro+, the module allows the sales force to convert quotations to invoices, price lists, catalogues and more as and when required at the click of a button. Existing invoices can be used to generate new quotes for repeat business or similar orders. Users can can write, view, print and email their quotations, which can be generated in MS Word, PDF or HTML format. Further, text lines, terms and conditions, etc, can also be added to explain the offer, set discounts, surcharges or apply freight charges.

According to Ashish Kamotra, CEO, Adapt India, " It helps in improving resource management, time management, technical expertise management, estimates, quality and effectiveness by helping in administration of the proposal development process in complex environments."

The quotes generated can also be tracked on the basis of their status — open, won, lost, etc, for the follow-up and analysis.
