Product Configurator and CPQ Software to Offer Increased Automation via Seamless ERP Integration for Mid-Market Manufacturing Companies
Ronkonkoma, N.Y. - September 3, 2014 - VAI, a leading ERP software provider, today announced details of its partnership with Configure One, a leading provider of web-based product configurator and CPQ (configure, price, quote) software. As a result of this partnership, users of VAI’s S2K ERP for Manufacturing software will be able to implement a web-based configurator and quoting solution for their sales departments, distributors and end customers. By automating the majority of a manufacturer’s sales order entry and engineering processes, mid-market customers that leverage the integrated VAI and Configure One solution can increase sales and reduce operational costs while improving accuracy.
Configure One’s flagship product, Concept Enterprise Product Configurator is designed specifically for manufacturers that design and build configurable, multi-option and customizable products. By seamlessly integrating with VAI’s S2K software, Configure One allows existing VAI customers to leverage its product configurator technology via their existing data, and without double-entry.
“We see tremendous potential from our partnership with VAI,” said Aleks La Rosa, Sr. Account Executive, Configure One. “We’re often asked to integrate our product with ERP platforms, and by partnering with VAI, we’re able to support a trusted and well established ERP brand that offers solutions specifically for manufacturers. We look forward to providing VAI S2K customers with configuration software that is simple to use, yet powerful enough to offer flexibility in today’s complex sales and manufacturing environments.”
The integrated software automates the entire quote-to-production process by generating sales configurator deliverables (pricing, quotes, sales drawings and virtual product images), as well as production outputs (bills of material, routings and production drawings) to allow sales reps to close sales faster and deliver orders with greater accuracy.
“Mid-market manufacturers need access to the right information at the right time in order to effectively perform,” said Dan Bivona, Sales Director, VAI. “Through our partnership with Configure One, our S2K for Manufacturing customers can access their sales configurator deliverables and production outputs through a central, searchable database, allowing for faster and more accurate quoting processes and in return, additional business closed.”
