Back in the days where a quotation plugin was just a myth, business owners would beat their brains out just to find an easy way to provide their customers with quick and accurate “quotes” or estimates on their products. But thanks to recent innovations, owners don’t have to endure such agony. Because of online estimators, running a business has become a piece of cake.


So what can you expect from the Joomla quotation plugin that you’ve heard so much about? First, let’s discuss what an estimator really is. In a nutshell, it is an extension that calculates quotes, making it easier for users to get cost estimates on a particular product or service. Computations are done automatically, which means you can rule out mistakes and erroneous calculations.


One of the common concerns of business owners, especially those who aren’t too familiar with programming, is the installation of the plugin. Well, you don’t have to worry because setting up a quotation plugin on your website is not exactly rocket science. In fact, you can do it yourself if you have a small background in programming. Just paste the code into your website to activate the plugin.


Configuring the estimator to match the type of business you have is also a breeze. A Joomla quotation plugin is fully customisable. You can easily modify its appearance. In addition, placing fields and menus is as simple as typing “No” on the appropriate command line in the plugin code. But if you’re not familiar with codes, you can simply ask a programmer to do the “tweaking” for you.


Here’s another cool feature: a quotation plugin allows you to send email responses automatically. Once a visitor uses the estimator, the plugin sends the result of his query to the email he has provided. A reminder, though. Just make sure that you configure the plugin to work this way. Otherwise, you won’t be able to take advantage of this nifty feature.


In the same manner, you can customise your email responses. If you’re not too fond of the usual generic responses that you receive whenever you sign up for a newsletter online, you can make the message sent by your quotation plugin more unique. In addition, you can also use the opportunity to get prospects to know your product or services better.


These features are just some of the many benefits of using a quotation plugin. So what are you waiting for? Get an estimator for your business website today.
