Updates tagged with "Quotes"
When companies order a piece of custom packaging for the first time, it can be hard to know all the specs and structural details required for their design. Now, suppliers can help bring those specs to the finish line.
These new filters will reduce the time you spend sifting through quotes, and help you find the best-fit faster:
Your quote request will only go out to specific suppliers you select and suppliers that meet all your advanced filter criteria. You'll find these new Advanced Filters in the Suppliers section of quote requests.
💡 Tip: As you add more filters, the supplier count in the top right of the quote request page will change.
It's now possible to request quotes for multiple items at the same time!
When you create a quote request, you can now add as many items as you want. A multi-item request is useful for quoting items that will be produced together, for products that come in multiple sizes, flavors, colors, etc. You can also use multi-item quotes for packaging that contains multiple sub-components like inner boxes and inserts.
Suppliers will see a multi-item quote request if all the items included match their capabilities. As you add items you'll see how many suppliers can offer all of the items in one quote.
Additionally, we've made it easier to compare quotes between different items and suppliers at a glance from the quote request page.
Today, we’re making it simpler to keep up with your quote requests. Until now, you needed to log in to get a snapshot of all your quotes, and you needed to set up reminders about accepted quotes expiring on your own. Now Lumi sends you a weekly digest of your open quote requests and even sends you a reminder seven days before an accepted quote expires.
On top of these digests, we’ve also spent the last few weeks polishing the quote request flows across Lumi. As a result, you should see faster loading times, on-page design improvements, and supplier logos.
With the release of multi-account access last month, we've also made improvements for managing multiple clients:
