REQUESTS

Receiving requests such as request for information (RFI), proposal (RFP), and quotation (RFQ) in a business process from the customer to suppliers can be complex especially government contracts. Our trained agents can find business opportunities for you through various government resources such as the U.S. Federal Business Opportunities (https://www.fbo.gov/ ) where 32,600 active federal opportunities exist. Once an opportunity is found, a Statement of Work (SOW) is submit to you for your review.

ESTIMATING

Meeting the total requirement from a request for quotation (RFQ) can be daunting. For example, you are a supplier of bicycles in a manufacturing business. The RFQ requires 200 police bicycles along with helmet and bike accessories, however you only manufacture bicycle frames. Our database of suppliers can help fulfill your contract requirements of accessories and provide you with an estimate.

CONTRACT

Once the contract is awarded, we notify you of the good news. Within the contract is the amount awarded and terms of the contact such as length, quality, and special conditions. We act as your broker in the contract by facilitating funds transfer, quality issues, delivery, and performance. When the terms of the contract are agreed upon by the parties involved, a smart contract is then digitally constructed whereby the parties are awarded when the performance of the contract is fulfilled.


FAQ Invoice System

Where do I start?

  1. Start importing your data from other services (i.e. WP-Invoice, Freshbooks or Harvest).
  2. Even with the defaults set in General Settings the ‘Company Info’ should be filled out first.
  3. Review your Payment Settings and provide different methods of payments for your clients. Don’t let your client find out you’ve configured the payment processor incorrectly—make sure to test.
  4. There are a lot of notifications sent throughout the entire client acquisition process, make sure they have your personality and represent your brand well. You can send HTML emails, check your General Settings for more information.
  5. Grow your business while not forgetting about your loved ones…and the occasional round of golf.
