PowerBids Dealer Quoting & Ordering

Accurate Quoting and Ordering for your Dealers, Distributors, and Field Sales

PowerBids is an automated quoting and ordering system for your remote dealers, distributors, direct customers, and sales representatives.

Frontier ERP’s  PowerBids automates and simplifies the entry and management of quotes and sales orders for complex, customer-specified product lines.

Developed as a stand-alone, remote application, Frontier PowerBids leverages the Internet to communicate sales orders and ensure that the local database is synchronized with the latest product, configuration, and pricing information from your Frontier ERP system. This stand-alone design provides the flexibility to generate quotes and orders wherever needed, without requiring Internet access.

You can use PowerBids for products sold by the square foot, linear foot/inch, per hundred/thousand, united inch, or each. It also allows your dealers and distributors to maintain their own price book for “other” non-configured products such as glass, mirrors, screens, caulking, molding, and hardware.

With PowerBids, dealers can easily generate:

  • Price books
  • Quotes
  • Purchase Orders
  • Invoices

If you sell through a dealer network, PowerBids brings your product range to life on your dealer’s website. Orders are placed consistent with what your configurator can build. Less back-and-forth with your order and production/assembly departments. Fewer errors and faster turnaround equals happier customers.
