Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
TDCI, Inc.

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 reduce order processing time, cost, and errors.
"With BuyDesign Insights, sales managers and other executives now have the ability to track and analyze all stages of the sales process from quote to order - even for dealers and distributors," said Dan DeMuth, TDCI President. "This greatly extends the manufacturer's visibility of the pipeline since they typically have not had access to indirect channel activity until an order is placed. This increased visibility helps manufacturers improve dealer collaboration, sales forecasting, and production planning."
In addition to basic information about quotes and orders such as product, quantity, and price, BuyDesign Insights also captures details about product configurations, including specific features, options, and dimensions. This information provides added insight for manufacturing planning as well as the basis for analysis of option selection trends and the impact of pricing and promotion programs.
