Deacom’s Product Configurator is a native component of DEACOM ERP and is used by manufacturers and distributors within the order entry process. Our configurator acts as a bridge between sales, production, and engineering teams to define a number of criteria, including: which options are available for base parts, which options may work with other options, which options may include other sub-options, and the costs of various options. The product configurator can work either by itself, to enter and price a configured item on a sales order, or can be linked to item masters for the purpose of production and inventory control.
Unlike other product configurator bolt-ons, DEACOM’s configurator is built-into the main ERP platform and follows a rules-based approach to the sales order entry process. Benefits of this approach span multiple industries and include:
The configurator does away with the need for manual calculations and provides specifications that can be accurately transformed into finished product.
Product information that exists in a single location ensures that configurator selections are always up-to-date and potential errors are mitigated.
Configurator selections automatically flow through into the bill of materials, production routings, pricing, and shipping.
