Procurement Professionals Praise Bastian Solutions Conveyor Configurator as Pricing and RFQ Tool
Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2015 -- Bastian Solutions developed the new Conveyor Configurator so those "in the know" buyers are able to select the variables and brands of conveyor solutions, such as the slider bed belt conveyor from Hytrol. The Conveyor Configurator will then provide pricing and printable quote.
Nothing is purchased without a written RFQ, yet increasingly savvy and experienced purchasing and procurement professionals know what they want to order without a conversation with a system integrator.
The online Conveyor Configurator (see example at: http://ow.ly/Q3iMM) allows for a rapid and efficient way to specify the elements needed in the conveying solution. It does not exclude the role of the system integrator, but rather is a starting point for a conversation.
This is a natural migration as most consumers are purchasing products online; the professional purchasing manager also expects to price compare and gather the price points for the anticipated purchase. For some, the Conveyor Configurator may simply lead to an online purchase without further interaction required.
