Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
TDCI, Inc. (TDCI), a leading enterprise software solution provider, announced today that Robbins Inc. (Robbins), the leading global supplier of high performance maple and synthetic sports flooring systems to the arena, education, religious and fitness markets, has licensed TDCI's BuyDesign® Configurator to enhance the configuration and pricing process for the company's highly customizable sports surface products. BuyDesign Configurator will be integrated with Robbins' existing Infor ERP BPCS Enterprise Resource Planning system to provide guided configuration and pricing during quote creation and order entry. BuyDesign Configurator will also generate detail manufacturing information which will be passed into BPCS to drive the production and kitting process.
BuyDesign Configurator is a powerful product configuration engine which can be deployed via the web, or as part of either server or desktop-based software applications. It is a key component of TDCI's BuyDesign guided selling and configuration solution suite developed to streamline the sales process for highly customized products. BuyDesign helps companies that manufacture products with a wide range of features, options, and dimensions to 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.
In describing the sophistication of Robbins Sport Surfaces, Jay Stoehr III, Robbins President and CEO says: "Whether it's for a professional basketball arena, an Olympic venue, or a high school gymnasium, a wood or synthetic sports flooring system is more complex than most people realize, with many design options in terms of sub-floor, resiliency components, and other materials that dramatically affect performance characteristics."
"We chose BuyDesign Configurator to streamline our configuration process because it has the flexibility to handle the many variables in our flooring systems, and because it provides an intuitive graphical user interface that can be integrated with our IBM iSeries-based BPCS system," adds Tony Kleier, Robbins IT Director.
With headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, Robbins, Inc. is the premier supplier of high performance maple and synthetic sports flooring systems to the arena, education, religious and fitness markets.
