Original Press Release:



New Cincom Acquire Sales and Product Configurator 2.0 Quickly Integrates with Popular CRM Systems



Twice as fast as conventional configurators

CINCINNATI, Feb. 2 -- Worldwide software provider, Cincom Systems, introduces the newest version of its Cincom Acquire(TM) Sales and Product Configurator (http://www.cincomacquire.com/), which enables complex manufacturers to capture and deliver critical application, product, pricing, and process knowledge to the point of sale in real time -- ensuring the optimal fit between manufacturers' product offerings and customers' needs.

Unlike conventional product configurators, Cincom Acquire Sales and Product Configurator 2.0 is faster and easier to implement with two of the most popular CRM systems on the market today, Salesforce.com 8.0 and Microsoft CRM 4.0 (both on-premise and online versions).

"With a standard product configurator, most developers have to manually check the CRM system's tables for product, price book, etc. if they want to add something as simple as a line to a quote," says Greg Doud, Cincom Acquire product manager. "But with Cincom Acquire, you simply add a description of what you want to add, and Cincom Acquire checks these tables for you. You don't have to be an expert on the CRM system to integrate the product."

Cincom Acquire Sales and Product Configurator 2.0 also help you convert from Microsoft CRM Online to the on-premise version of Microsoft CRM without recoding or losing your data within the configurator.

Cincom Acquire automates the effective selling of complex products and services. Integrated with Cincom CONTROL(TM), Microsoft Dynamics, SAP, and Salesforce.com, it enables true collaborative selling processes and provides guided selling, channel and distributor collaboration, sales and product configuration, as well as quotation and proposal management.

Specifically, it provides:

-- Opportunity management
-- Customer needs analysis
-- Guided selling and specification
-- Product and service configuration
-- Quotation and proposal management
-- Proposal and document generation
-- Rule-based pricing
-- Detailed cost and margin analysis
-- Order submission
-- Workflow automation

Cincom Acquire has helped manufacturers selling complex engineer-to-order or configure-to-order products successfully streamline their sales, design, and proposal processes by delivering critical product and sales knowledge to the point of sale, while significantly reducing "quote to cash" time. Cincom has helped manufacturers reduce proposal generation time from five days to 15 minutes, decrease time to close a sale by 80 percent, and cut lead times from 14 weeks to six weeks.
