With the Consona Product Configurator, Intuitive provides the tool set that manufacturers of custom-configured products have been longing for. The Product Configurator, an optional module for Intuitive ERP, streamlines the quotation and ordering of configure-to-order products to deliver accurate pricing, product configuration and specifications, as well as bill-of-material and process routings—all generated on-the-fly.
The Intuitive ERP Product Configurator solution provides unprecedented configuration tools to give engineer-to-order, make-to-order, or configure-to-order manufacturing companies a competitive edge. The Product Configurator is fully integrated with the sales, inventory, costing and quoting modules of the Intuitive ERP system.
Compress the Quote-to-Delivery Cycle
The Product Configurator enables your sales force and customers to configure customized products, viewing design and pricing changes automatically as configuration modifications are made. This significantly reduces quote development time and effort, while providing 100 percent accurate product specification and pricing to your customer.
The Intuitive ERP Product Configurator also simplifies the collection and management of critical product data for sales and order entry functions:
- 80 percent simplification of information system files and structures
- 80 percent reduction in part structures maintenance and storage
- 80 percent reduction in item masters maintenance and storage
- 90 percent reduction in routings maintenance and storag
- 100 percent elimination of modular bills of materials (also known as planning bills or pseudo bills)
By passing configured data throughout your enterprise, order entry time is reduced and efficiency of product data is increased, making product delivery to your customers faster and more accurate.
The Product Configurator provides incredible visibility into the configuration process. The user can actually see a model of the parent item being created as they select different options throughout the configuration process.
The Product Configurator can be executed from a Web browser and allows the user to execute product configuration concurrently or independently—utilizing one universal set of product configuration rules and objects which unilaterally drive configured Bills of Material, Configured Product Routings, Configured Prices, Configured Quote Documents, and Configured Costs.
Implementing the Intuitive ERP Product Configurator is very simple compared to other configurators. Following the Intuitive model, the interface is easy to use and understand, and the implementer does not need to be a developer in order to establish the user-defined rules and configuration settings using the Product Configurator’s integrated development environment.
