For those of you who publish in AutoQuotes – our manufacturers – and those who subscribe to AutoQuotes – our dealers, reps, consultants and designers – we’re proud of the trust you’ve placed in us. We’ve moved the Food Service Equipment and Supplies (FES) industry forward through technology leadership.

AutoQuotes – An Industry Standard

AutoQuotes Founder Kent Motes parlayed more than a decade of knowledge gained at his family’s foodservice equipment dealership into a software product that revolutionized the way professionals display, quote and sell foodservice equipment and supplies.

Prior to AutoQuotes, dealers and manufacturer reps carted around dozens of catalogs filled with product information that was often limited and difficult to locate quickly. Motes saw a better way. He collected product data electronically and developed an application that allowed dealers to search a digital catalog, select items and automatically generate a quote.

Today, using AutoQuotes is a standard way of doing business. Job descriptions often require a knowledge of the AQ software, and industry associations consistently include AutoQuotes information in their publications.
