Compare Boost My shop vs. Cart2Quote Quotation module
This review and comparison have been based on the facts available at the time of writing. Contact Cart2Quote for and up to date comparison and recommendation.
Solid product management
Cart2Quote uses Magento product core functionality whereas Boost my Shop creates a new product for every new quotation.
The workaround BMS has will mean your product reporting etc will no longer work and your product database will grow with every quote you send. Cart2Quote has a very solid quotation engine which fully utilizes the Magento core functionality and keeps Magento product reporting intact and the product catalog clean and tidy.
Native Support for all Magento product types
Cart2Quote fully support Magento configurable, bundled products and items with custom options.
BMS changes the logic of Magento products (i.e. bundled and configurable products become simple products)
User interaction design
Cart2Quote has a more user-friendly workflow both on the front-end for the customer as for the store administrator.
A proposal is created in mere seconds as is the possibility to convert a proposal or quote request directly to an order.
Convert Quotes to orders via backend
Cart2Quote has a complete admin panel which enables the shopowner to not only create new quotes and proposals via the backend, but he can also convert quotes into orders directly and complete the order for the customer via the backend.
- No need to register customer before submit quote (this happens automatically)
- Ability to add notes per product with quote request
- Ability to add multiple qty's per product line (Tiers)
- Ability to request additional customer details
- Change request by the customer on the flow (add subtract products, qty's etc)
- Nice styled Magento HTML templates
- Automatic proposals
- Communicate with the customer via the backend by a mini-CRM system
