• This mode must be implemented by Commerce Vision. For Pronto ERPs. Requires versions 4.37+ for full feature use.
  • Quote requests via the standard system functionality will not include shipping charges. For quote calculations to include shipping, please contact Commerce Vision for assistance.


Standard and Approved mode integrates with the quoting system in your ERP while customer approvals are managed through your Commerce Vision website. Depend on settings, users in specific Roles can view, comment, and action their own quotes or those created by others on the Quote Review page.


Once a Standard and Approved quote is created, it is loaded into your ERP, e.g., PRONTO, with the quotation status: '02'. Your Sales Rep or Customer Service team can easily identify the items on the quote, check costs (and margins), add freight, etc, there. After finalising the quote, it is converted to a Sales Order and reintegrated online. The quote requester accesses the Quote Review page and can decide what action to take. They can accept the quote and proceed to checkout. If an approver from the requester's organisation needs to approve the quote first, during checkout, the standard approval process is triggered.     


  • Quotes over the user's budget limit will trigger the online approval process (if active). See: Order Approvals   
  • Integration with the Quote Review feature to provide users on a customer account with functions beyond just conversion of a quote to an order. 
  • Quote expiration features are included, e.g., an expiring soon reminder can be emailed to the user, you can allow customers to request reactivation of expired quotes.
  • Settings configured in CMS Feature Management. (For 4.37+ only.)
