To set up the integration, you're going to click on settings, and you will see The Edge Estimator button that takes you to the place where you will put in The Edge API key. This is what makes the connection between the two systems, allowing them to talk to each other. You can get the API key by calling The Estimating Edge team.
Underneath your API Key, you'll want to make sure you also enter your API Client, which is the same for all users: 085a9b3d95d24860a7047572516fc5bc. Copy and paste that code into the second box field and hit save.
Once you get this set up, you will see a new button in your file data that says “New Bid-The EDGE.” once you are at the stage within your sales process where it makes sense to create the estimate, you will click on the new bid button and that will create your bid in your Edge Estimator.
From there, you can pull up the system and create your estimate. Once the estimate is complete, you can come back into Followup CRM and click refresh. This pulls the data back into Followup CRM.
If you have multiple bid scenarios, you can select the scenario that you would like to pull into Followup CRM. Once that information is entered into the system, you can continue on with your sales process so that you can win that job.
