Difference between purchases quotation & sales quotation?

on 3/27/13, 2:49 PM 9,238 views


( I'm beginner in OpenERP and I'm trying to understand the difference between sale and purchase quotation)

normally,before placing an order, the buyer needs to find out the price of the goods. This is done by written PURCHASE QUOTATION provided by the seller. Normally is created in: --> purchases --> purchase --> quotation.

In OpenERP we also have Sales- sale- quotation --> As I can understand SALES QUOTATION is an order that has not been validated or cancelled yet.

If I understand well the way is: 1) purchase quotation --> created by the seller 2) purchase order --> agreement and prepared by the buyer 3) sale quotation (something mixed between delivery note and invoice) 4) sale order

If is that correct --> Why is necessary to have sale quotation??? why not directly sale order??? Can you explain me please the purpose to the sale quotation?

thank you in advance

Purchase quotation and sale quotations are same thing with only difference purchase is made for supplier when you want buy something, sales is made to customer when you are selling something. Eg: you have a shop that assembles computers people go and ask you quotation in that case you will give them sale quotation because they are your customer but when you want buy you will do purchase quotation for your suppliers.
