We needed a way to quickly and easily distribute our price book information to our growing dealer network and knew that IRON Builder was a proven, budget-friendly solution for us.
Franklin, TN (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
Honey Bee Manufacturing Ltd., a Canadian based Harvesting equipment manufacturer, has entered a data licensing agreement to provide their complete product catalog to authorized North American dealers through the IRON Builder Service, the on-demand, online configurator service from IRON Solutions, Inc.
Honey Bee’s product line covers a diverse range of draper platforms (Grain Belt header, Grain Belt PLUS header, Grain Belt swather, and Rice Belt header) that attach to most combines and many of the windrower tractors in the market today. The Honey Bee draper platform technology is used in a wide variety of crops and conditions across the globe.
“We needed a way to quickly and easily distribute our price book information to our growing dealer network and knew that IRON Builder was a proven, budget-friendly solution for us,” says Howard Groth, Honey Bee’s Sales Manager. “The IRON Builder product configurator engine is sophisticated enough to handle the most complex build rules seamlessly, so we can improve order accuracy and reduce quoting errors across the channels.” Groth adds.
Honey Bee joins other leading OEM’s utilizing the IRON Builder configurator, including New Holland, Case IH, Krone and Case Construction.
“IRON’s price book expertise, combined with the IRON Builder engine, make it fast and easy for OEM’s to digitally distribute price book information and manage factory programs and special pricing across their dealer channels. Integrate that capability with their dealer’s quoting tools, and you’ve just improved the bottom line for manufactures and dealers,” says Paul Olson, IRON Solutions’ Data Acquisition Manager.
Within hours of the agreement, Honey Bee equipment was made available for authorized dealers to immediately quote Honey Bee products and pricing in IRON HQ®, the on-demand customer and equipment lifecycle management service used by Honey Bee dealers.
“IRON Solutions has a long history with Honey Bee and have seen increasing demand for their products from our dealer customers. Honey Bee continues to be a leader in innovative solutions and high-performance equipment, so we knew our products would work well together.” Olson adds.
