CalcuQuote began as a simple idea on a whiteboard to find a solution better than spreadsheets, emails, and websites. Chintan Sutaria, Founder of CalcuQuote, took the idea and began speaking with people in the industry about a possible solution.
With a bright-eyed and eager team, the first version of CalcuQuote was released. The initial version allowed basic quoting functions including loading bills of materials, adding costs, and labor estimation. By December, CalcuQuote had a group of nine beta customers. And as the customer base grew, so did the internal team.
With a clear product-market need, a satisfied customer base of over 30 EMS companies throughout North America, CalcuQuote was growing at a steady pace. By the end of the year partnered up with some of the biggest component distributors in the Electronics supply chain, covering more than 85% of the component marketplace.
CalcuQuote doubled its customer base and introduced its new batch of product offerings, including SearchCQ and BidCQ. CalcuQuote's growth is driven primarily by its reputation for a well built product that specifically serves the needs of EMS companies and its excellent customer service.
CalcuQuote's RFQ Management System started taking the lead as the #1 Quoting software for EMS companies. Our team started expanding our portfolio by working on new products and services to help our customers.
CalcuQuote became the industry standard for the best way to handle quoting for the EMS industry. We've kept the founding values of providing excellent customer service and responding to feedback with monthly product improvements.
CalcuQuote joins the Elisa IndustrIQ Group. With Elisa’s resources and geographic reach, CalcuQuote can expand globally and better serve customers while continuing to establish itself as a leading provider of EMS supply chain solutions.
