Quoting: Finding the best partner
The quoting and vendor selection process usually begins early in the project with Compass researching and identifying a short list of qualified partners, usually both domestic and offshore. As the design files move through the process, we send quote packages for initial cost estimating as well as for feedback from the vendors to the Compass design team. This dialogue with select partners helps to refine the design for efficient production capabilities and supplies the team with the latest cost, component availability and materials information. That way we can help guide our client to the best decision for their unique needs.
