At the Tech Takeover, we’ll be talking about how to move from labor-intensive processes and spreadsheets to best practices with a true enterprise solution.
TROY, Mich. (PRWEB) January 30, 2018
FACTON, the leader in Enterprise Product Costing (EPC), today announced the company is hosting a “Tech Takeover” event at Automation Alley headquarters in Troy, Michigan on February 7, 2018. The topic for the event is “Manufacturing Made Easier with Smart Product Costing Tools.”
The Tech Takeover session is intended for cost estimators, directors and C-level professionals in costing, finance, estimating and quoting roles at manufacturing companies.
FACTON and an independent research firm have published findings that show that speed and accuracy of costing and quoting suffer when manufacturers rely on Excel spreadsheets; time and resources are wasted and the quoting process is slowed by these and other legacy desktop applications. FACTON COO North America Mike Betz will discuss how using the right tools can help manufacturers accelerate their costing and deliver maximum product cost transparency throughout every phase of the product lifecycle.
FACTON President North America Ruediger Stern commented, “Automation Alley is the premier organization for knowledge exchange within the automotive community, and we’re excited to work with them to present this important topic. Our research shows that suppliers that deliver accurate, timely quotes - and who can support their work when the inevitable questions are asked - are more likely to win new business. At the Tech Takeover, we’ll be talking about how to move from labor-intensive processes and spreadsheets to best practices with a true enterprise solution for costing and quoting.”
