Beacon Orders

The orders functionality of the Beacon integration allows for auto-generated material orders to be sent directly to the Beacon branch of your choosing. Before getting started, make sure that your Beacon Pro+ account is linked to SumoQuote.


Set Up Level Recommendation

We recommend that you have your account set up to at least Level 2. and have created a Beacon Price List

Submitting a Beacon Material Order


Orders can only be created after a quote is signed.

The items selected during signing will be added into the created order.
