Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
TDCI, Inc. (TDCI), a leading enterprise software solution provider, announced today that Antigua Door Company of California and Puertas Antiqua in Central America, manufacturers of custom and semi-custom hardwood doors, have selected TDCI's BuyDesign® OnDemand guided selling and configuration solution to provide sales representatives with web-based online product quoting capabilities for the company's high end entry, interior, and wine cellar doors.
BuyDesign OnDemand is a web-based selling solution designed specifically for the needs of small to mid-size window and door manufacturers, and offered as a managed service. BuyDesign OnDemand provides all of the essential tools needed to help window and door manufacturers become 'easy to do business with' while also being easy to deploy, manage, and afford. It provides comprehensive quote and order creation, bid package generation, and information export for sales analysis. The system can be made available on the web for 'self-service' use by dealers and distributors, as well as for use by in-house sales people. As a hosted solution, no hardware, software, or IT support staff is needed. Predictable monthly usage fees are based on the number of users and can be scaled to just about any size company. A library of pre-built window and door parametric models combined with templates for product and pricing information can be leveraged to further speed implementation. Until now, solutions with the capabilities offered in BuyDesign OnDemand have only been practical for larger companies that could install and manage such a system themselves, and who had the sales volume to justify the cost of an in-house IT staff.
"An easily accessible, easy to use door quoting system is essential to our growth plans," said Clay Ramsey, Antigua Door Vice President of Sales. "BuyDesign OnDemand fits our needs well because we can get it up and running quickly, and it's built specifically for doors and windows. It also gives us an affordable way to get started with a proven quoting solution we know can scale up as we grow."
With North American sales headquarters in California and manufacturing facilities in Guatemala, Antigua Door Company and Puertas Antigua work with contractors, developers, architects, and homeowners throughout North American and Central America respectively to design and produce the finest hardwood entry, interior, and wine cellar doors available. Built with solid wood cores, numerous door styles, wood species, and finishes can be combined with a broad range of locksets and hand-forged decorative handles, grills, pulls, latches, bolts, hinges, and knockers to give each door character and a one of a kind look.
