Technology Group International Launches New Rules Based Online Configurator
Toledo, Ohio - September 21, 2005 - Technology Group International (TGI), a leading ERP software solutions provider, today announced a new online product configurator as part of their flagship product Enterprise 21.
The online configurator speeds quoting and order entry time, decreases costly errors by eliminating non-buildable products, and automatically creates bill of materials and routings for manufactured products. This is obtained by creating a rules-based product configuration matrix that provides easy to use, selection criteria for the end user. The software allows for streamlined product configuration by providing a simple drop down menu approach with immediate online graphics to show the user the configured product.
Not only is this an internal cost savings, it dramatically increases the level of customer satisfaction by providing an intelligent sales force that is quick to respond to customer requests. To offer even greater pay back, the configurator is fully web enabled to allow for internet deployment and serve as an electronic expert which can help customers purchase products in a real-time, 24/7 store front setting.
In addition, unlike many configurators available today, TGI's product configuration software takes built in functionality a step further by providing an online product configurator that is fully integrated into a complete ERP system. This allows the Enterprise 21 ERP software package to manage not only the front end configuration needs, but also provides for a tightly integrated process of managing the entire enterprise wide fulfillment process through product design, order management, advanced planning, procurement, manufacturing, warehouse management, and post sales support.
