Detroit-based software company MakerOS has announced its latest product for the 3D printing industry called Public Autoquoter. Described as “more than just a quoter,” the new tool lets businesses generate quick and accurate customer price quotes directly through their websites.

Public Autoquoter is the startup’s latest addition to its cloud-based MakerOS business management platform for 3D printer users, job shops, and designers. The startup, which originally launched in 2015, has grown significantly in recent years, even raising a whopping $530K to upscale its business management software.

Its newest tool, Public Autoquoter, has a number of features that are sure to grab businesses’ attention. They include: easy integration and customization; the ability to white-label the platform; customized colors, logos, text, and email; compatibility with Wordpress, Squarespace, and other web platforms; a customizable quoting engine with variable pricing capability; and more.

Founder and CEO of MakerOS Mike Moceri commented on the new tool, saying, “This is the automatic quoting system that I’ve been dreaming about for over 4 years. Companies using MakerOS can get the ease of customization and implementation without compromising their bottom line; it’s a game changer for the 3D printing industry.”

Price quoting tools for 3D print jobs can be hugely beneficial to companies, as they allow prospective clients to “shop around,” giving them an idea as to how much a particular print job will cost depending on materials used and other factors.

In addition to generating price quotes, Public Autoquoter gives users the ability to easily link their websites to their customized autoquoter page, as well as to embed iframes with a single line of html code. One of the product’s more notable features is its ability to be connected to a given user’s inventory, which enables more accurate cost, pricing, and usage analysis.

Finally, users can benefit from Public Autoquoter’s “abandon cart” recovery tool, which, as I understand it, lets businesses reach out to clients that have left their online shopping carts without completing an order. The idea for this is to enable businesses to “convert” clients back.

To use and access the new 3D printing quote tool, users with an activated MakerOS account can simply go to their MakerOS subdomain and type “/start-a-quote” at the end of the page’s URL. As long as users have a bank account attached to the account and a pricing system entered into the Public Autoquoter’s settings, the tool should be activated and ready for use.
