RE:Quoted Price error.
Weare grateful for the good business we have had with your company forlong. Thank you for the information you supplied us concerning delayin shipping your supplies. Breton woods agree that we are late inshipping due to the pricing error in the quoted price by oursalesman.
Bretonwoods also understand the inconvenience caused by failing to deliverthe supplies on time and your need to have in place the requiredmaterials for the purpose of production. There was a mistake in thequoted price by the salesman for the usual price than our usual $70per thousand pieces for the widget. Our profits are 15 percentsat this price and the quoted price by the sales person was too closeto the real costs without even an allowance for changes in steelprices.
We,therefore, halted the shipping of the suppliers so that we couldnotify you on the slight problem.We wish to process the transaction at the usual price in order toavoid further inconveniences and recoup time wasted coping with theerror. However, we request you to notify us on any problems thatarise early so that we can be part of the investigative process.
Themajor cause of errors between our organizations is due to lack of adirect relationship in regard to our respective sales departments. Asyou know, Breton wood still uses several different salesmen withreference to the same Breton wood part numbers. In addition, many ofyour part requirements descriptions incorrectly adds to the salesprocess confusion.
Itis therefore, necessary that we clear this up to avoid futureconfusion between our sales departments with your company. Cleardescriptions on part needed should be emailed in documents and copiedto the sales manager to track down on the problem and avoid timewastage later. We accept any inconvenience fees related to thesetypes of errors in the future.
Ifour parts or the salesmen result in the necessity for this sort oferrors or re-work, we want to be notified in time so that we canaddress the problem effectively and timely.
Ifwe are at fault, we will accept responsibility and ensure Bretonwoodhas their salesmen trained and briefed on the correct pricing of thevarious parts they need at all times either through re-work or areplacement shipment, at our expense.
Weassure your firm that we will be proactive in a true spirit ofpartnership with you as we pursue the reasons for such errors andaddress them in a timely manner.
Onceagain, thank you for your business.
