Simplify, Streamline, and Integrate Quotes and Orders to grow aftermarket revenues
Most Quoting and Ordering systems are hard-to-use and inefficient resulting in lower productivity, missed sales opportunities, and customer dissatisfaction. While many eCommerce solutions exist for shopping, they fall short in streamlining the quoting and ordering processes for manufacturers of configurable products with multiple aftermarket revenue streams.
Maximize revenue opportunities with existing customer and install base
Simplifying and streamlining Quoting/Ordering processes help manufacturers to generate higher margin sales with existing customer and install base.

- Simplify ordering by consolidating multiple systems to allow quoting and ordering on any channel at any time
- Streamline workflows by integrating seamlessly with payment, fulfillment, shipping, and enterprise systems
- Save costs by reducing order entry errors, returns, and customer support calls
- Enhance the ordering experience during any of the service interactions at all touch points during the customer lifecycle
- Grow revenues from existing customer and install base by increasing parts sales, improving service contract attach rates, and directly engaging the customers on all channels

Streamline Order flows to improve efficiency and productivity
Ordering using legacy systems or ERP can be complex and expensive. Mize Order Management application (Orders) streamlines order processing by eliminating manual steps, reducing errors, and providing an integrated quote-to-order flow.
If your sales team is using spreadsheets for quotes and orders, and then re-entering the data, you can replace that process to make the salespeople more productive by eliminating duplicate data entry.
Your order processing team can easily manage order workflows, pricing and discounting decision tables, and order fulfillment. You can reduce paperwork, eliminate manual steps for fast and error-free order processing.
Streamline and Automate order workflows
Streamline your sales order management and improve productivity. Order workflow can be configured and managed in the application.
The Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 standard based workflow engine is an easy to use workflow design and monitoring tool that allows you to define your workflow approvals using a drag-n-drop interface. The workflow tool allows interaction with all the other transactions, data, and forms allowing you to orchestrate quoting and ordering processes.
Shorten Quote-to-Cash cycle time
Improve the cycle time going from Quote to an Order and customer payment to improve cash flows, and inventory turns. Expedite your quote-to-cash process and focus on exceptions with rules-based automation. Mize Orders allows you to:
- Share quotes via email or customer portal to get customer approvals quickly
- Convert an approved quote to order with a single click
Shorten the quote-to-cash cycle time frames by integrating ordering, fulfillment, shipping, and delivery.
Pricing and Discounts
Manage pricing and discounting rules within the application or integrate with other enterprise systems in real time to get accurate and current pricing information on orders.
The pricing and discounting decision tables provide the flexibility to optimize sales and profitability.
Integrate Ordering life cycle to connect all stakeholders and processes
Orders can be easily created from third-party applications such as Dealer Management System (DMS), Repair orders, Warranty Claims, Support or CRM. Orders can be generated from any application using standard web services API.
