Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 19, 2006
In an effort to increase the speed and accuracy of their quoting system, ABC Companies, a leader in the sales and leasing of new and pre-owned highway coaches in the U.S., has implemented SmartCatalog by Endeavor Commerce.
ABC Companies has chosen the Sales Configuration Edition of SmartCatalog to be seamlessly integrated with their current Sage CRM SalesLogix system. With the addition of SmartCatalog to Sage CRM SalesLogix, ABC’s account executives will have the ability to create accurate quotes and proposals with just a few clicks of the mouse. SmartCatalog is a rule-based configurator that will ensure the quote-to-order entry process is flawless.
“ABC Companies has always focused on ways to increase the speed of our quoting process without compromising our quoting accuracy,” said Jim Morrison, VP of Sales. “Not only will SmartCatalog allow us to produce fast and easy quotes, they will also be extremely accurate. “The ability to generate quotes offsite is also a major benefit, considering a majority of our account executives are often traveling.”
SmartCatalog also generates update opportunities within Sage CRM SalesLogix. This simply allows the account executives to generate fast, accurate forecasts that will prove to be very important when traveling down the chain of command. The need for the account executives to give estimated forecasts is eliminated. “The decision to implement SmartCatalog was relatively easy to make,” said Mike Marhula, CFO of ABC Companies. “We are certain the SmartCatalog application will have beneficial effects on our financials as well as our overall efficiencies from a sales perspective.”
“Implementation of SmartCatalog made sense from the perspectives of both the sales and IT sides,” said Robert Ryks, Director of MIS for ABC Companies.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity and ability to help improve efficiencies of ABC Companies, an extremely value-and customer-focused organization,” said Sean Myers, CEO of Endeavor Commerce. “We know that ABC Companies has made a great business decision with their implementation of SmartCatalog.”
