Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK. (PRWEB UK) 2 April 2012
Blue Zebra the author of Blueprint the “Quote to Order” and “BOM (Bill of Materials) to Product” solution announces new Engineering Design modules. This new release builds on the ability of Blueprint to allow sales people to automatically produce engineering design documents as part of their quotation process to address new industries.
Racking Module – Allows suppliers of Racking Systems to best fit racking according to the type of racks and the space allocated.
Electrical Wiring Diagrams – Produce Standalone electrical wiring diagrams or have them integrated with mechanical components
HVAC Ducting – Produce engineering diagram for best fit HVAC ducting and shielding solutions
Blueprint customers now have the ability to change dimensions, components, shapes, materials, according to customer requirements, within the Blueprint Quotation System and any associated Engineering Drawings will automatically change to reflect new dimensions and parameters. This significantly reduces the time taken for manufacturers to quote jobs that require customisation, because the sales team does not have to use the engineering design department for quotes. It is now practical to include a drawing with every quote to enhance the professionalism of the offer and increase the chance of winning the business.
Blueprint stores the configurations and the changed engineering drawings in the customers CRM system, so that additional customisations or prior jobs can be quickly completed, amended and retrieved.
John Munday, Managing Director of Blue Zebra says “To automate the production of a customised engineering drawing from the quote system reduces the time to respond to customers and also removes the need for dedicated design engineers to produce customised drawings.” He also added “Standard Mechanical Engineering companies have enjoyed this ability and now other industries can benefit from the ability of Blueprint to automatically produce engineering drawings associated with the quotation. More industries can now benefit from Blueprint to save money, eliminate quotation mistakes and increase their customer service levels at the same time.”
The Blueprint Quote to Order and BOM to Production product suite integrates with AutoCAD, Draftworks and products that support DWG or DXF. Blueprint can also be integrated into most ERP, CRM and eCommerce systems such as SAP, Pegasus Opera, SalesLogix, Magento, Salesforce.com and Microsoft.
