Online quote forms can be a great way to make the RFQ process easier for customers. One company that offers particularly effective quote forms is Ken Forging, a Jefferson, Ohio-based manufacturer of superior quality drop-forged hardware. The company’s online forms are clear, easy to use, and provide customers with helpful information.
A form for every product
On the quote section of the Ken Forging website, customers will find a complete list of the company’s products. From C-clamps and screws to pad eyes and turnbuckle assemblies, the list covers a broad range of forged industrial hardware. Each entry in the list provides a hyperlink to a quote form for that particular product.
Since the company provides individual forms for each product type, the forms are quick and easy for customers to fill out. They include a technical drawing of the product and allow customers to specify their requirements for dimensions, threading types and more.
A variety of options
Ken Forging has the capability to work with a variety of materials, so the forms include a section on material preferences. There are many options available, such as various grades of carbon, alloy and stainless steels. The company also offers a number of finishes, including black oxide, galvanized and electro polished. The quote forms only list the options that apply to that particular product, which further simplifies the process.
Another section of the forms deals with required certifications. For instance, customers can specify if they require a Certificate of Conformance (C of C), certified test report, material certifications or plating certifications.
In addition, the quote forms include a section to specify product quantities and whether the customer requires the exact quantity specified. The forms also provide information on the company’s permissible quantity variation. For instance, when dealing with quantities of more than 1,000, quantity variations of up to three per cent are permitted.
Lastly, the quote forms allow customers to specify any additional requirements. Ken Forging has the capability to create custom forgings up to 250 lbs., so it can accommodate virtually any special request. Once the RFQ is submitted, the company provides a prompt response and prides itself on fast delivery.
