Pros
The program is completely customizable to fit our business model. While the out of the box option was attractive, we were able to work together to produce a products that perfectly suited our needs.
The cost is affordable cost, the functionality is easy to understand, and their customer service is great.
It has customizable forms, and it's easy to send out RFQs to multiple vendors. It's reliable and has great response tracking.
Cons
Some suppliers have complained that they can not access the system to input the data.
I have worked with Pantera, iSqFt, and some other similar systems that are specialized for construction. This is comparable in all ways, better in some, and worse in none that I can think of.
Due to the large number of quotations issued, it is difficult to find some RFQs in the system.

RFQs sent for Automotive Programs sub-components for brake systems.

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

I like sending RFQs electronically with drawings without filling up my mailbox.

Cons

The volume has to be placed without a comma, or it will not show up for the vendor.

It does the basics of quoting (sending and receiving quotes)

Reviewed 5 years ago

It has saved us hours in sending out quotes to suppliers.

Pros

It saves a ton of time managing emails for quoting. You can send a large number of skus out to a large number of vendors in a very short time. The customer support is fantastic, whenever I call or email, our customer service rep jumps to the rescue.

Cons

It's only great if everything works perfectly within process. Send then receive works great. But If you need to add a part to the quote for a supplier that has already quoted, you have to do a work around. If the supplier can not get adobe, they can't import their quote using excel, instead, you have to do a work around. If a supplier quoted 1 of 20 parts incorrectly, they have to resubmit all 20, or do a work around. The front end experience (creating an rfq and sending the rfq to suppliers) is great and has saved us hours of work, The back end handling is where it's a little clunky.

Ease of reports and get at info behind the main screens. There is new report systems but we have been unsuccessful to use

I am a commodities buyer, and I use QLM extensively.

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

I like the history of all quote requests that I can pull up and how I can pull them up by part number, RFQ, supplier name, or almost any field, honestly. I also like the ease of updating supplier information. In general, the site is very intuitive; I didn't really receive extensive training, but I feel I have an acceptable level of expertise just through regular use.

Cons

I don't like that my suppliers see the portal differently than I do. Sometimes, I provide information, but for some reason (maybe just how it's displayed to them, I don't know), they can't find it. That might be their error, but it happens often enough that I believe it may be an issue with how it's displayed to them. I also do not like how fast it goes to an automatic logout. It seems like it does it after five minutes or less. That's a little too quick.

Excellent Product for Tracking Quotations

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

The quotation system is excellent. The ability to set up suppliers and then send the same quotation to multiple suppliers is ideal. The other feature that I also like is the calculation tab for all the quotations received. This allows for a quick and easy supplier selection.

Cons

Due to the large number of quotations issued, it is difficult to find some RFQs in the system. To work around this, a quote summary sheet is prepared for all quotations, noting the RFQ number and part number quoted.
