Cincom Introduces Configuration Management Software for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Cincom’s Sales and Product Configurator Helps Complex Manufacturers Create Effective Sales Configuration
CINCINNATI, OH–( EMWNews – March 31, 2008) – Worldwide software provider Cincom Systems
(www.cincom.com/q2o) today introduces Cincom’s Sales and Product
Configurator for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. With the new configuration, users
of Microsoft Dynamics CRM can win more customers, while still being able to
fulfill the orders accurately and on time.
Cincom’s Sales and Product Configurator captures the product, services, and
business knowledge needed for guided selling, complex product and sales
configuration, and proposal management. It enables complex manufacturers to
capture and deliver critical application, product, pricing, and process
knowledge to the point of sale — ensuring the optimal fit between the
manufacturers’ product offerings and customers’ needs.
Manufacturers with engineer-to-order or configure-to-order products have
successfully streamlined sales, design, and proposal processes by using
Cincom to deliver critical product and sales knowledge to the point of sale
and reduce “quote-to-cash” time significantly.
“Cincom is aggressively committed to expanding its channel program,” says
Gregor Newland, channel manager. “Microsoft Corp. industry partners are
always on the lookout for software technologies that will benefit their
clients, especially those that utilize the Microsoft Dynamics platform.”
“Cincom’s Sales and Product Configurator is a leader in flexibility and
true knowledge management, and now this functionality is combined with the
power of Microsoft,” continues Newland. “This allows partners to better
enable their clients to improve crucial front-office processes such as
guided selling, product configuration, estimating and bidding, and
quotation and proposal management.”
Easy integration with Microsoft
To the end-user, the interoperability between the two products is seamless.
Two simple buttons appear on the Microsoft toolbar marked “New Configured
Opportunity Product” and “Reconfigure Opportunity Product.” These buttons
open a web-based version of Cincom’s Sales and Product Configurator for
Microsoft Dynamics and lists all of the products that can be configured.
The “new” button adds a new product to an opportunity after going through
Cincom’s configuration application. The “reconfigure” button does the same
but for a product that has already been configured at least once. Products
configured in the Cincom’s Sales and Product Configurator are stored and
routed in the Microsoft Dynamics applications.
