In an industry where the requirement for customizable end-products is common, flexibility, speed, and accuracy in meeting customer demand is essential to remaining competitive.
SYSPRO enables you to improve your time-to-market performance and streamline constituent processes through its rules-based Product Configurator. Not only does it provide streamlined order-taking by non-technical staff, it facilitates the automatic generation of factory orders and purchase orders, with all the relevant detail such as materials and operations required to make or assemble the correct customer-specific configuration of the product. In addition to releasing technical staff from the order-taking process, the Configurator mitigates the need for manual input or additional bills of materials to cover all product permutations and drastically reduces the margin for input errors. New permutations may be saved for future orders making it easy to recall at order entry time.
Additionally, for complete engineer- and design-to-order requirements, SYSPRO speeds the processing of inquiries through its estimating and quotations functionality, with estimating providing an accurate view of both standard and non-standard material and labor costs, ensuring accurate profitability projection and quoting. Furthermore, SYSPRO's powerful factory scheduling features enable you to quote accurate lead times and delivery dates based on capacity and existing loads. Once a quote is accepted by the customer the conversion to a factory order is a simple automated process.
