Your RFQs will appear under the Quote-Inbox with the status "Not Quoted" until you receive quotes and the status "Won’t Quote" or "Quoted" once you have received them.


+- Q: How do I quote?
A: You can send quotes from your RFQ inbox:
  • Hover your cursor over "Capabilities" in the main menu.
  • Click on "RFQ-Inbox" in the drop-down menu: a list of your received RFQs will appear in a table format with different status such as "Not Quoted", "Won’t Quote" and "Quoted".
  • Click on "Select Option" and choose either "Create Quote" (fill in the form) or "Won’t Quote".
The customer will receive your quote by email and via our tool. You can quote a RFQ at any time, even if previously set as "Won’t Quote". Please note: the faster you quote via our tool, the better your response rate.


+- Q: Can I monitor how many users have viewed my capabilities?
A: You can monitor the search and RFQ activities on your capability listing by part number, period or customer and even export the report in Excel format:
  • Hover your cursor over "Capabilities" in the main menu.
  • Click on "Statistics" in the drop-down menu.
  • Select the filters to narrow down your statistics at your convenience.
  • Click over the result numbers to have a more detailed view.

+- Q: How accurate is the industry average price information in the search results?
A: The industry average prices are based on data collection from the quotes sent via our tool. They are therefore automatically updated on a daily basis, providing average prices and market trends.

+- Q: If I send out an RFQ, how likely am I to get a response?
A: It is quite impossible to provide an accurate answer since we can only monitor the online activities. On average, 50% of the RFQs sent via our tool receive quotes via our tool. Some suppliers quote directly by email or phone call to create or strengthen their commercial relationship with their prospects or customers, which we cannot monitor unfortunately.
