CaterQuotes to Debut New Kitchen Design Solution

Hotelympia visitors to get first look at the CQ Designer Plug-In

Birmingham, UK (26 February 2018) – CaterQuotes, the UK’s leading configure, price, quote (CPQ) software with online catalogue for the Foodservice Equipment and Supplies industry, will preview CQ Designer Plug-In, its kitchen design solution for CQ subscribers on stand 1629 at The Professional Kitchen Show at Hotelympia.

Subscribers to the CQ software will now be able to use the design plug-in to connect their quotation projects and product data to their existing AutoCAD platform – bringing design and quote together. CQ users can populate commercial kitchen drawings with CAD blocks from the CQ Catalogue to create powerful designs, including a specialised 3-D functionality that is exclusive to the Foodservice Equipment and Supplies industry. Changes to either the quotation or the design will automatically notify the other. Customers can visualise their kitchens via the highly accurate, customised quotations and designs.

“Design is becoming a critical component of the quotation process,” said Paul Shaw, Operations Director at CaterQuotes. “Because the CQ Designer Plug-In is designed to combine CAD drawings with complete product specifications, it becomes a powerful combination that will further fuel the efficiency of CQ subscribers.”

In addition to the CQD Plug-In, CaterQuotes will showcase a range of new catalogue and software features to Hotelympia visitors. These include a new, more visual catalogue interface design and CQ Analytics, a free built-in reporting tool to analyse quotation activity.

For more information about the CQ software and the new CQ Designer Plug-In, visit stand 1629 at Hotelympia.
