Users create quotes and orders 24/7 with CIS Configurator launched from the Web Portal. A Sales Quotation or Sales Order can be submitted to SAP Business By Design
Our product line is very diverse and offers many variations on a theme. We prefer to not carry multitudes of Production Bills of Materials for Product variations and would prefer to allow our sales team to answer simple plain language questions to build a full system and have the software do the hard work of remembering Assembly and Material codes. This assures material code accuracy being sent to SAP's Business ByDesign Platform. This also frees up our Engineering and Materials management groups from having to create multiple BOMs for small changes in our product.
The ability of CIS to interface seamlessly to ByD via the iConnect allows us to have a smooth order creation process. The beauty in the software comes from the ability for the user to create the question and answer groups in a flow that they design allowing the combination of answers to funnel latter questions and answers and ultimately resolve to usable and accurate part numbers for Sales Orders.
