Did you know that...EnterpriseIQ allows you to create quotes based on configurations?
The Sales Configuration Template tool makes it simple to configure groups of items and select variables into a single quoted item.
The Configuration template form can be accessed from the Lists menu, CRM Quotations, or directly from the CRM/SRM tab on the launcher bar. Once a sales configuration template is created it can be added to a CRM Quote. All visible options that are a part of the configuration are added to the quote. If choices are marked as the default they will be added automatically but can be changed to make adjustments based on specific customer requirements. Dependencies can be also be set up to ensure that if a specific choice is selected the appropriate "dependant" items are added to the sales order upon conversion.
