Line 3: Line 3:
 Instant Quote is a fully automated, customizable,​ online solution for screening compound selection, quote calculation,​ ordering and shipment tracking. It eliminates unnecessary e-mail communications. It utilizes our unique **price optimization algorithm** which calculates the **best price and fastest delivery quotes** by comparing and optimizing compound prices, supplier discounts, small order fees, delivery costs, customs duties and reformatting options. It allows the user to exclude compounds based on their effective price, and it recalculates the quote on-the-fly. Instant Quote reduces screening compound sourcing costs especially for large orders where manual optimization is not possible (many suppliers, different price schemes, delivery options, etc.). Additionally,​ the elimination of e-mail communication saves valuable time of scientists and procurement managers. Instant Quote is a fully automated, customizable,​ online solution for screening compound selection, quote calculation,​ ordering and shipment tracking.

-**"​Effective price"​** is displayed for all products listed in an Instant Quote. It shows how much the total price would be reduced if the particular product was removed from the quote. You can eliminate expensive compounds by selecting them and clicking on **"​REMOVE SELECTED AND RECALCULATE"​**. Please note that negative effective price is also possible and it means that removing the product would increase the total price. This is possible when you are on the border of a price category jump, e.g. ordering 100 compounds instead of 99 could result in lower average price per product. Zero effective price is also possible if you are below the minimum order fee of a given supplier.+**"​Effective price"​** is displayed for all products ​/ suppliers / catalogs ​listed in an Instant Quote. ​
