Contractor / Professional Service for Adding Quote/Configuration Capability

We are currently using salesforce.com for managing sales leads. We want to expand the use to include quoting and order entry capabilities. We want to minimize new development and customization and utilize the simplest options available. We are open to identifying a 3rd party application to add-on or to utilize customizations with the existing salesforce capabilities. Specific expertise or knowledge on semiconductors and/or components is a plus. Looking to start the project in promptly.
 
If you can recommend 3rd party applications ideal for quoting and/or order entry for semiconductors/components, or a resource to implement such applications, please contact website@siliconclocks.com. We are located in Silicon Valley and prefer local resources, but we are flexible.

Hello,
You have a couple of options for adding quote and configuration capabilities.

1. If you would like to go the simplest route, then add the free add-on available via AppExchange for quote and configuration. This will associate your opportunity to a quote object that can have multiple product line items. Your disadvantage will be that you cannot add options and features. You cannot email the quote and editing is enabled so you have to believe in your Salesreps or write rules for accuracy. Other than that it is great and best of all it is free.

2. Big Machines CPP: This is the big daddy of pricing and quoting. Will take a long time to implement and configure. But we love it.

3. NSite Quote and Proposal Management : Another great addon you can. Personally I like this most as it is easy and simple.

4. Build your own: You will have the most control if you do this route, perhaps start with option1 and then extend the functionality. Especially if you want complex discounting like volume discounting and promotions to be integrated to your proposal generation and quoting practice.
