Product and Sales Configurator within DEACOM ERP

Product and Sales Configurator

Quickly enter sales orders | Configure what your customers want | Ensure accurate data

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:

 

 

Reduced Time Entering Orders
