The Atlatl partnership with abas-USA underscores a growing trend to enable more cost-effective 'mass customization' by streamlining the entire customer order value stream.
Charleston, SC and Sterling, VA (PRWEB) February 01, 2014
Atlatl Software, a Six Axis LLC Company and pioneer of the software category "sales resource planning" (SRP), and abas-USA, a leader in mid-market enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, announced their partnership to provide abas-USA customers with Atlatl SRP software. The joint announcement was made by Matt Carter, COO of Atlatl SRP software and Alan Salton, president of abas-USA. Under the terms of the agreement, which took effect January 1, 2014, the abas-USA sales team will market Atlatl SRP software to its customers and prospects.
"We're enthusiastic about the opportunity to drive a significant shift in the ERP market whereby our combined ERP and SRP expertise will deliver a much improved customer experience when purchasing complex engineered-to-order products," said Salton.
Both companies expressed a growing demand from small and mid-size manufacturers to add value by enabling greater customization—a key focus of the partnership.
"Our partnership with abas-USA underscores a growing trend to enable more cost-effective 'mass customization' by streamlining the entire customer order value stream from initial sales visit to final delivery," said Carter.
He explained that the partnership supports increased market demand for greater front-end (sales) and back-end (manufacturing) integration. This integration will improve the efficiency and accuracy of the design and specification process while enabling planning and manufacturing to maintain the highest quality standards.
Simplifying the complexity of selling and manufacturing configurable products:
Atlatl SRP software integrates engineering rules, parts masters and pricing information into an innovative 3D, virtualized interface. Using a laptop or gestures on an iPad®, sale reps render a 360 degree simulation of the product configuration as it will appear in the customer's native system. A quote, complete with engineering drawings and bill of materials, can be issued.
Atlatl SRP solutions represent a paradigm shift in the way companies can interact with customers and prospects. Real time interactions— from CRM and configurations to quoting and creating bills of material—accelerate delivery performance. Deep integration into abas ERP gives the customer an end-to end solution that includes MRP, scheduling, procurement management, inventory, service and complete financials. It is a total solution for configure-to-order, build-to-order and engineer-to-order manufacturers.
"Atlatl adds value in the upstream sales and order entry process and abas-USA does the same for downstream manufacturing. Together we provide a substantial competitive advantage – top line growth and bottom line savings for manufacturers of complex, configurable products," said Rob Honeycutt, Atlatl CEO.
