Joining Qimtek was a cost-effective alternative to employing additional sales staff. We receive a large quantity of qualified, live opportunities, from a variety of different industries, directly to our inbox. Although we are not fully utilising these leads at present, in just a few months of membership we have already arranged site visits with some really nice companies, as a result of responding to the RFQs.
We they have successfully secured £90,000 worth of initial orders, many of which have gone on to place repeat orders. Qimtek is a very useful tool, which I use every day and particularly enjoy the varied opportunities to offer quotations to new and existing customers. However it is good to know that realistically, it can take anywhere between a few months to a few years to build long-term relationships. We have been successful over the years and have many new and returning customers.
We set ourselves a target to win orders and cover the cost of the membership in 3 months. We surprisingly achieved this by the end of week one and gained valuable new customer contact information. We spent months in 2018 trying to win work with one new customer, but could not get past the front door. Quoting via Qimtek allowed us to not only get the right contact information, but also win their projects and produce their parts.
