How to manage your quotations in Sage 50 with help of @spire

Using Quotations module within SAGE 50C


Within SAGE 50, there is an existing module in which you can raise a quotation within the application. However where the entity is not a current customer difficulties arise as SAGE 50 c does not have a processing module for possible future Customers such as Prospects so it’s necessary to create a Customer adding an unnecessary management task if you want to do that.

You can avoid this unnecessary management task by using the @spire add-on for SAGE 50c.

In the module you can create a quotation for both Prospects and Customers in exactly the same way.
