With clientele spread wide across the aftermarket and MRO sectors including the aviation, marine, parts trading, and electronic component industries, sales teams often face an overwhelming onslaught of requests for quotes (RFQ). When companies, like those in the aviation industry, publish their repair capabilities or current inventory among the 17+ inventory listing services, they must manage a wide variety of RFQ formats across multiple customer accounts. As a solution to this RFQ management problem that sales people contend with daily, Minnesota-based Ambry Hill Technologies created a revolutionary cloud-based product called VistaQuote. In VistaQuote, a sales person can now view these differing formats as one standardized, simplified, manageable RFQ format. “We offer VistaQuote as one mechanism, one consistent repeatable method to respond to these RFQs regardless of the listing service they came from,” says Paul Stewart, President and CEO of Ambry Hill Technologies.

A company using VistaQuote will immediately foster sales growth by supporting the logistics and financial supply chains with fast, accurate, relevant information. “By focusing on the information supply chain rather than the logistics or financial supply chain, VistaQuote eliminates time consuming rekeying, retyping and transferring of RFQ information.” Says Stewart. Its compatibility with a variety of existing ERP systems means that the ROI from using VistaQuote is immediately evident because of the drastically reduced time required for RFQ processing and generating the corresponding quote. Through timed studies, Ambry Hill Technologies found that a sales person takes between five and seven minutes to review an RFQ and compile a response. The same process is clocked at under a minute using VistaQuote.

Ambry Hill Technologies frequently hosts live demonstrations that showcase VistaQuote’s unique capabilities to clients from a variety of industries to whom VistaQuote is made available as a 30-day free trial. Implementation takes less than a week, and VistaQuote specialists remain close by to provide live training sessions and ongoing technical support.

VistaQuote offers several notable features, one being its automated RFQ routing. When an RFQ is routed to a salesperson in VistaQuote, only one copy exists. This single RFQ instance eliminates the confusion that would normally exist between sales people working within a typical email-based environment. Another salient feature is called Coworker Shares, which is a tool for managers, supervisors, or employees to monitor the account activity of sales teams or to work the assigned RFQs on behalf of another employee. Moreover, a centralized blocking system relieves sales teams from having to manage block lists. “We help our customers sort through the RFQ noise to focus on the RFQs that matter,” says Stewart.

Ambry Hill Technologies, in collaboration with MSR eCustoms -- a world-class provider of export and trade OFAC compliance solutions, pioneered a first-of-its-kind export compliance screening process inside VistaQuote. With this feature enabled, VistaQuote will automatically perform export compliance screenings on all incoming RFQs. Screening at the RFQ level means that you can determine if a company is appropriate for quoting before investing further time and attention.

As a next-generation leader in aviation technology solutions, Ambry Hill Technologies provides real-world expertise and innovative solutions designed to increase ROI and grow revenue opportunities for companies of all types.
