Dynamics AX as a new ERP system, they discovered that e-Con offered a rules engine that could handle even the most complex options, especially exclusions, and meshed seamlessly with the Microsoft Dynamics AX user interface and ERP databases. After deploying the solution with Microsoft Dynamics AX, product development and sales began to experience significant benefits.
Following the rules and transforming lives
e-Con is driven by a rules engine that’s ideal for custom manufacturers, because it enables them to design products with literally thousands of variables. Engineers no longer need to spend time instructing salespeople about BOM creation— every element and option is pre-defined. Salespeople can breathe a sigh of relief. When they’re creating proposals, quotes, and order, they move through an intuitive guided selling process that prompts them to make the right choices and protects them from creating impossible combinations. e-Con fuels the Life & Mobility mission by enabling product development to create the best possible products, and equipping sales to offer customers the exact options they need with confidence. Completed quotes can be converted into orders with a few clicks, and pushed to the ERP system for quick processing and transformation into production BOMs. The people who need these devices can get moving sooner, because Life & Mobility can jump-start production.
Keeping pace with innovation
Configuration models are created in the e-Con Studio, which as a model-based environment almost eliminates hand- coding. Product teams can also manage innovation in near-real time. Product enhancements can be configured in a matter of minutes and applied to existing models. That frees designers and engineers to focus on larger advances in technology that ensure a healthy future for the company.
Life & Mobility is generous in sharing its accomplishments, and credits e-Con with helping them improve their ability to meet customer needs and ultimately, change customer’s lives. That’s a fresh and inspiring perspective that gives new meaning to our work at e-Con Solutions.
