Supplier Quotes allow you to send a list of materials to multiple suppliers in order to get the best price. This is useful for large projects and can enhance your procurement procedures.
Click ServiceTrack > Supplier Quotes to open the Menu Options page. This page gives you quick links to the In Progress, Pending Approval, Approved and Processed lists of Supplier Quotes. These statuses are the same as those for Invoices and Purchase Orders and describe the state of the Supplier Quote.

Use this status once the supplier quote has been finalised and you're ready to create purchase orders.
Once purchase orders are raised, the quote will become processed.
