On the Sales page of the client or prospect card, you can view and edit quotes, proposals, and enrollment kits that are relevant to the client. Let’s take the client card as an example. To quickly access the Sales page, find the client record in the table and click the Sales link in the Actions column.



The Sales page has three subpages.


Quotes


The Quotes subpage contains all client-related quotes that you create for a carrier or general agency. The quotes are divided into Active, Drafts, and Archived.



Uploading Quotes

To upload a quote, сlick the Upload Quote button and fill in the following data in the window that appears:

  • Select All: Select this checkbox to automatically populate the Requested From field with all contacts from the carrier or general agency who are labeled as Quoting. Leave the checkbox blank to add the contacts manually.
  • Desired Effective Date: Select the date on which the quote should become effective.
  • Census Type: Choose one or several census types that are relevant to the quote.
  • Sent On: Select the date on which the quote is going to be sent.

  • Status: Choose one of the available statuses for your quote:
    • Draft: Place the quote record on the Drafts tab and send it later.
    • Sent: Send the quote.

Requesting Quotes


There are two ways to request a quote in NextBroker:

  • Request a quote from a draft by clicking Edit Draft under Actions and add the missing data in the form that appears.

       


The Request Quote form is similar to the Upload Quote form; however, now you cannot set up the sent date and change the status. Besides, you have to accompany the quote with a message.
