About This Webinar
Developing a clear, comprehensive request for quote (RFQ) is critical to the successful completion of any custom optics project. An RFQ that clearly communicates your business priorities in the areas of pricing, performance, and service will enable custom optics providers like IRD Glass to provide you with a faster, more accurate quote for your project, and ultimately deliver a product and/or service that meets your high expectations.

This webinar will guide you through the process of writing an effective RFQ, including all the information needed for IRD Glass to provide you with a comprehensive quote on your custom component. Presenter Michelle deCastro will discuss the items to cover in your RFQ, including:
  • Application.
  • Product type.
  • Volume potential and schedule.
  • Material type.
  • Dimensions.
  • Surface quality.
  • Coatings.
  • Assembly, cleaning, and packaging.
DeCastro will answer all your questions about RFQ development and offer suggestions that could make the process go more smoothly and result in an RFQ that addresses your requirements in the areas of both quality and cost.
