Quote It 3D estimating and quoting software from Machine Research is said to provide a secure, centralized and easily searchable catalog for shops to view, catalog and manage the quote-to-order process. The application is designed to help sales and estimation teams respond more consistently and faster to RFQs without sacrificing accuracy. 

The application includes the ability to view 3D files on any device and create a centralized catalog of parts. It reduces the need to piece together data from multiple sources. It captures job information and knowledge to create estimates in a searchable database, which contributes to easy comparison of incoming RFQs to prior work. The database also makes it easier to find and reuse prior costing and pricing data. The application can generate quotes quickly and send and track them easily.

The application gleans data from 3D models and applies customer intelligence to pricing rather than relying on antiquated costing models. The result is more accurate and results in faster quotes with less human effort.
