Founded by a B2B Merchant for B2B Merchants
Quote Ninja was started when John McCann identified the need for a more robust quoting solution for his own business. After becoming frustrated by a cumbersome and antiquated quoting process he searched for a software solution. However, he found the industry was lacking a reasonably priced and versatile quoting tool that focused on the needs of the modern business. Rather than accepting the lack of a solution, John began sketching out his vision for a proper solution.
Working closely with technical co-founder Micah Thomas, who understood John’s eCommerce needs, the vision became a reality and the innovative Quote to Order app was born in 2014.
In rolling out Quote Ninja to the eCommerce community, John and Micah quickly adopted a “business first” development process. Using this methodology, the app is built to fit the needs of the businesses and the users served. While this seems obvious, it means that development challenges can be substantially more complicated. Nothing is added to Quote Ninja arbitrarily, or without critical analysis.
Flexibility is built into the design process so that the app can adapt to various businesses to meet their unique needs. Processes that are found to produce less than stellar results are refined and continuously improved upon. The impact has been substantial when multiplied across the more than 125 enterprises worldwide who rely on Quote Ninja today.
More than half a billion dollars-worth of quotes have been generated through Quote Ninja in the span of just a few years. These numbers continue to climb at an exponential rate, and while the team has grown, John and Micah remain the sole owners of the company and continue to make decisions based on what is best for the app and their users.
The focus is not on growth for the sake of growth, but on building and maintaining long-term mutually profitable relationships with their customers; and Quote Ninja is still excited by each and every new customer, and the overwhelming positive impact they have on those businesses revenue.
