One of the most important features of Squid is Email communication & tracking. The tool allows you to send an auto-generated Email of the RFQs you create. In short, in just a few clicks you can send RFQ Email to n number of suppliers.
Not just that, you'll be notified as soon as the supplier responds. This entire history of the communication will be saved in a bifurcated form for easy reference & tracking in the future.
To send the Email to suppliers, follow the steps below-
Step 1: Select the RFQ button from the Dashboard or from the extreme left bar.
Step 2: Select the RFQ of your choice.
Step 3: Click on the Assignment card at the top.
A list of suppliers with a mail icon in front of their name is displayed as shown below-
The Email icon is of two colors-
Red indicating the contact is already added and you can send Email immediately.
Black indicating the contact isn't added, so you need to add that first.
Step 4: Click on the icon. Check the inputs of the auto-generated Email and click on the Send button.
Step 5: The sample Email which the supplier will receive, looks like the following picture-
The supplier enters in the details and you're notified of the same in real-time.
