Columbus, OH (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
TDCI Inc. (TDCI), the leading provider of configurator-based software, announced today that Western States Envelope & Label (Western States), one of the nation’s largest envelope manufacturers, has selected TDCI’s Buy Design Product Configurator, Product Visualization, and Sales Quoting software to standardize and streamline the configure, price, and quote process for the company’s custom products. BuyDesign will be used by sales and customer service personnel to specify style, material, size, window location, and other features from the wide range of product options offered by Western States. It will then calculate the price based on those options, generate a dimensionally correct product drawing, and produce a quote for the customer.
In explaining the importance of the new quoting system, Steve Brocker, Western States VP of Sales and Marketing, said, “Our customers are selling speed-to-market as a key value proposition. We see the BuyDesign software as the tool to take us to the next generation of our quote-to-order process and meet the needs of our customers.”
Western States will initially deploy BuyDesign for use by sales and customer service personnel for envelope products, then for label products.
“We selected BuyDesign because TDCI was able to demonstrate a solution to every need we outlined to them,” added Jeanne Schaeffer, IT Director. “That gave us confidence that the software could handle our unique business processes, and that the TDCI people could provide the level of support we were looking for.”
