Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 28, 2010
TDCI Inc. (TDCI), the leading provider of configurator-based software, announced today that Wausau Supply Company (Wausau Supply) is the latest building supplies distributor to select TDCI’s Buy Design Product Configurator and Guided Selling software. Wausau Supply will use BuyDesign to provide dealers with online quoting and ordering capabilities for the company’s assembled and fabricated products, including pre-hung exterior and interior door systems, custom shutters, and their DiamondKote siding product kits. Later, Wausau Supply plans to use BuyDesign for additional product lines as part of their value added initiative. BuyDesign will be integrated with Wausau Supply’s Infor ERP SX.enterprise business system and other existing systems.
BuyDesign is a comprehensive solution suite 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 reducing order processing time, cost, and errors.
Wausau Supply will use the BuyDesign Channel Sales quoting and ordering application along with the BuyDesign product configurator. In later phases, Wausau Supply will use BuyDesign configurator embedded within SX.enterprise order entry, and will use BuyDesign Build-Your-Own as a consumer tool for visualizing custom products. Infor and TDCI will jointly support the integrated solution as part of the recently announced expanded relationship between the two software providers (see http://www.prweb.com/releases/2010/09/prweb4478434.htm).
“Deployment of BuyDesign is part of our strategy to provide dealers and customers with the best value-added services in the industry in order to save them time and money, and to make it very easy for them to do business with us,” said Joe Jordan, Wausau Supply President.
Mike Stelzl, Wausau IT/Applications Manager, added: “We selected BuyDesign over the other solutions we looked at because it has the flexibility to handle a wide range of products, and because their integration strategy enables us to smoothly incorporate it into our overall systems environment. We also like the idea of having a single focal point for support as a result of the close working relationship between Infor and TDCI.”
