Introducing Quotes

The Quotes feature in Wisenet helps organisations to create, issue and manage quotes. As a training organisation, you have the potential in meeting your customers’ needs with a flexible feature that allows you to draft and edit quotes that match exact customer requirements before finalising them.

Once a quote is created and finalised at the organisation’s level, issuing a quote will also automatically send the quote via email to the customer. Attached in the email is the Quote link that is viewed online with the option to also download the quote as PDF.

Who is a Customer

Quotes can be issued for:

  • An Individual
  • A Business

In Wisenet, the individual or the business you are creating a quote for is referred to as a ‘Customer’.

A Customer is created and added during the Quote creation process. Once a customer is created, Wisenet saves the data so you can easily re-use their details to issue new quotes in the future.
