Converting design into materials and operations takes time and effort. You need to figure in costs such as CAD design, tooling, and freight. Then there’s the pressure to deliver a precise quote within the customer’s time frame. All these factors impact product excellence, so you don’t accept compromise. You need the e-Con Sales and Product Configurator, designed to help you balance costs, speed, and quality.
e-Con: Transforming custom into a streamlined standard
Customers value companies they can count on to produce highly specific metal parts and products. You’re in a highly lucrative niche, if you can minimize cost and effort for rather unique requests. It’s not uncommon to receive a hand-drawn sketch of a part that needs to be delivered in 24 hours, as a series of only 10 items! The e-Con Sales and Product Configurator can help you transform “custom” into an efficient, profitable standard.
- Users can quickly build a custom metal product by selecting the metals, nuts, bolts and all other parts from a pre-defined catalog.
- The e-Con rules engines can quickly calculate labor and machine hours.
- e-Con reads prices, weight, and all other relevant data in real time from your ERP database, so users always work with accurate, current information, compare different calculations.
- After users select the optimal calculation, it can be turned into actual items, bills of material, and routings and pushed to the back office for immediate processing. Purchasing and production can begin within minutes of receiving the customer’s request.
