Seeking a detail-focused remote freelancer to help back up our in-house sales team to prepare quotes. Our company sells & produces decorated logowear/apparel. Custom screen printing and embroidery for other businesses is our main market area. Every job is a little different, so every day holds new challenges and interesting projects! The basic steps our Quote Assistant will perform are as follows: • The basic info for each quote will be sent to you from our in-house team, through our cloud-based workflow app. You will be notified of a new request to build a quote by e-mail. The basic info is: A) Style #(s) of items needed + color. B) The details of the decoration needed. Number of colors for screen printing, stich count for embroidery. • You will then log into our suppliers’ individual websites to look up: C) Our suppliers’ cost for each item, and D) Check current stock levels, to ensure there is stock available in that style/color. • Once all basic data has been gathered, you will use our proprietary Excel spreadsheets to calculate pricing. Decoration details (B) and Style cost (D) get entered here, and finished costs are calculated. • You will copy & paste the calculated pricing into the quote form, which is the same page where you’ve received the basic info (A & B) from. • Update to the proper status in the cloud app, to send the completed quote back to our in-house sales team for review + they will send to client. Support is in place for this role: • We have a PDF guide to proper quote formatting, step by step usage of the cloud app + more specifics to help you to do everything correctly. • Video tutorials with examples are available anytime to help you understand how our process should work. Notes: • Number of hours needed weekly to build quotes varies, and demand is very seasonal. We expect to need 10-25 hours per week at first, and demand will increase from there. • Competent English language skills are a must for this role, as there is some limited information which must be typed in some quotes. • Accuracy in looking up supplier pricing is extremely important, as well as with data entry into the spreadsheets. • We use Skype as a live support network, for the Quote Assistant and the Sales Team to communicate and help this work flow quickly and smoothly. • We are a fun loving, small team and we are looking forward to meeting the right person to fill this unique role!
