Have you ever dealt with the Dreaded RFQ process?
Is it time to submit a Request For Quote (RFQ)?
For starters, let’s say you are working on a new product design.
On paper, you have everything perfect.
You go through the checklist:
- All of the designs are final.
- Your drawings are complete.
- You have identified all of the parts.
- The Bill of materials are also complete.
Now you need prices.
You turn to trusted Google. You conduct a few searches.
In hopes of finding a vendor.
One that is eager to partner with you on this exciting project.
You submit your RFQ to several potential suppliers and then……..Crickets.
As a result, you now find yourself playing the Dreaded RFQ waiting game.
Ahh…..the Dreaded RFQ.
To sum up, the Dreaded RFQ process can be described as cumbersome. It is also, stressful. As well as, frustrating.
Professionals in purchasing and procurement will tell you it is one of the biggest sources of frustration. They will also tell you, it lies with waiting for a response to a request for quote.
Waiting for the dreaded RFQ wastes time. Along with, resources. As well as, hurts profits.
For those of you in new product development. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could receive a quote immediately?
It’s not that the vendor doesn’t want to get an accurate quote in your hands as quickly as possible.
Especially with small manufacturers.
They simply lack the necessary resources to do so.
Resources such as technology, staff and most importantly, time.
