WorkPLAN’s quotation module benefits from a knowledge database with technical criteria to easily search and optimize the quotation process based on past experiences.

This native link simplifies the way to use the quotation module, the final user keeps working with tools which are familiar to his current sales process but optimizing the treatment in a common database that he can share with other users.
You can create one template for each production type and link it to WorkPLAN in order not to enter the information twice. New quotes can be issued quickly and accurately within a short time frame increasing your reactivity.
WorkPLAN’s native connection to 3D files using WorkXplore 3D product will help you make more accurate quotations. Load and analyze all your digital 3D CAD data directly with WorkXplore, measure draft angles, distances, thicknesses, radii and create the bounding boxes to clearly estimate the raw material budget. WorkXplore will recover the complete assembly tree that can be imported in one shot into WorkPLAN. The 3D CAD Part and each 3D file linked to a part of the assembly tree is linked into WorkPLAN with an integrated 3D viewer.
The Advanced Bill of Materials option can be used without any WorkXplore 3D licenses, this allows simple importation of BOM data related to one project through a customized .csv importation process. This automatically integrates the data into your quotation or jobs, streamlining the process.
