Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
TDCI, Inc. (TDCI), a leading enterprise software solution provider, announced today that Eggers Industries, a leading manufacturer of premium quality architectural wood doors, door frames, architectural plywood and components, has selected TDCI's BuyDesign® software to provide their dealers, distributors and internal sales representatives with advanced product configuration, visualization, quoting and ordering capabilities. BuyDesign is a comprehensive guided selling and configuration solution developed to streamline the sales process for customized products. BuyDesign helps companies that manufacture products with a wide range of features, options, and dimensions increase sales by becoming 'easy to do business with' while at the same time helping them improve profitability by reducing order processing time, cost and errors.
Eggers will implement BuyDesign Channel Sales as an online application accessed by dealers and distributors via the web. The BuyDesign Configurator will also be integrated with Eggers' existing ERP system (Frontier from Friedman Corporation) to provide consistent configuration capabilities across all sales and customer service processes using a single repository of product data. BuyDesign Flex2D will provide dynamic generation of configuration-specific drawings for visualization purposes, and for inclusion in bid packages. In later phases of deployment, additional BuyDesign applications will be considered for the 'interest generation' and 'requirements capture' steps of the sales process.
"We selected BuyDesign because its configuration engine has the flexibility to handle the feature, option, and dimensional configuration requirements of all of our products, and because BuyDesign offers a broad range of supporting applications and deployment models," said Ann Duebner, Eggers VP of Sales and Marketing. "TDCI has extensive experience in the door and window industry, so we also feel confident in their ability to support our aggressive implementation plans."
"BuyDesign's software architecture and integration tools were also an important element," added Bob Rautmann, Eggers Corporate IS Manager. "TDCI showed us that it would be easy to integrate the configuration engine and selling applications with our existing systems and we know the Microsoft technology platform will be easy to manage."
With headquarters in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, and manufacturing facilities in Two Rivers and Neenah, Wisconsin, Eggers Industries is known among Architects, Interior Designers, and Specifiers for premium-quality 5-ply architectural flush doors, true stile & rail doors and architectural plywood and components. Eggers doors have a wide range of options in terms of veneer species, grade, cut, and match; finishes; hardware; light openings; louvers; glass; and packaging.
