Footer Tab



This tab will bring up the Comment grid and the stock grid – where users record their relevant comments to the quote record, and record stock to be quoted to the customer. When opening any quote, this is the active tab.


This tab shows the expected costs of the stock being quoted on. Stock cost and vendor information will be added to this quote automatically. See detailed topic on Cost tab.


Jim2 allows to pre-define specific text, such as company terms and conditions, to appear on every quote. This can be performed through Tools > Options > Quote, accessed via the Jim2 menu. If default header and footer text have been set up in the Quote Options, that will be displayed here.


This will allow consistent quoting procedures in the business. From this information, relevant quote reports can be provided to customers. Quotes add vital statistical data to the Jim2 database to help manage the sales pipeline, forecasting and productivity.


Users can also add personalised messages to a quote in the Text tab.
