Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
TDCI, Inc. (TDCI), the leading provider of configurator-based software solutions and an Infor Solution Partner, announced today that BuyDesign product configurator and sales quoting capabilities are now available as part of Infor ERP XA version 9.0. BuyDesign is a comprehensive solution suite developed to streamline the sales process for customized products. BuyDesign helps companies that manufacture products with a wide range of features, options, and dimensions increase sales by becoming ‘easy to do business with’ while at the same time reducing order processing time, cost, and errors.
BuyDesign Configurator provides guided product configuration and dynamic pricing for customized products within Infor ERP XA order entry. BuyDesign Channel Sales is a web-based guided selling, quoting, and ordering application that streamlines sales of customizable products through both direct and indirect sales channels. Both BuyDesign Configurator and BuyDesign Channel Sales are available to Infor ERP XA users as supported Solution Partner products.
The release of BuyDesign with Infor ERP XA version 9.0 is an important milestone in the expanded Infor-TDCI relationship announced in September 2010. With that relationship, Infor named TDCI as a Solution Partner and selected TDCI’s BuyDesign as an integrated product configurator, guided selling, and sales quoting solution within several of Infor’s solutions, including Infor ERP SyteLine, Infor ERP XA (MAPICS), Infor ERP LN (Baan), Infor ERP SX.enterprise, and Infor Storefront.
