It’s only been two months since the release of MakerOS 1.0, launched by Detroit startup MakerOS. Already, the company has added additional features to its cloud-based business management tool – namely, a new feature called Public Autoquoter. It’s a quick, easy way for customers to get fast and accurate quotes directly from companies’ websites, and orders are then sent directly to users’ MakerOS dashboards.
“This is the automatic quoting system that I’ve been dreaming about for over 4 years,” says Mike Moceri, founder and CEO of MakerOS. “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.”
It’s easy to integrate and customize Public Autoquoter into your website. Features include:
- The ability to white-label the whole platform
- Customization of colors, logos, text and emails
- Compatibility with WordPress, Squarespace, Wix and more
- A customizable quoting engine that allows for variable pricing
Users can easily add a link button on their website to their unique Public Autoquoter URL for easy customer access, and can embed iframes with a single line of code. A company’s full inventory can be connected to the tool for cost, availability and usage analysis. There’s also an “abandon cart” recovery tool. We’ve all done it – decided we want to buy something online, changed our minds, and left an item in our online carts, or gotten distracted and ended up elsewhere on the Internet before completing a purchase. The abandon cart tool lets users recover potential clients who wander off without completing transactions, and convert them back.
Public Autoquoter is easy to access. If you have an active operating system, go to your MakerOS subdomain and type in “start-a-quote” at the end of the URL (e.g., “[yourcompany].makeros.com/start-a-quote”). Make sure you have a valid bank account attached to your OS and your materials pricing set up within Autoquoter settings; otherwise Public Autoquoter will not be activated. You can also access the new settings within “Integrations and Widgets” and in the Autoquoter menu on your dashboard.
We’ve been following MakerOS since its beginnings, when it first went into public beta in 2015. The site was conceived of by Moceri when he was still in college, and he describes MakerOS as a “backbone” for makers.
“It’s inevitable that the future will be run by makers, and we see MakerOS as the backbone supporting these people and their dreams,” he comments. “We take care of all the things you don’t want to; all the things you shouldn’t have to deal with, anyway. We are a tool for helping you get back to focusing on your craft. We’re a helping hand, a trusted advisor, and a loyal partner. We’re the operating system for your maker business.”
