Ishida Europe Selects Cincom's Sales Configurator™

Cincom Technology to Improve Accuracy and Speed of Quote Production

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Worldwide software provider Cincom Systems announces that Ishida Europe (, a world leader in the design, manufacture and installation of complete weighing and packing line solutions, has chosen Cincom's Sales Configurator™ ( to improve quote and proposal processes for its configure-to-order products. Ishida will deploy the Cincom Sales Configurator across Europe for both their direct sales operations and dealer network.

Ishida selected Cincom's Sales Configurator for its proven ability to help manufacturers configure products with 100% accuracy, dramatically reduce proposal-generation time and cut lead times by up to 80 percent.

Another reason was its ease of use. "Cincom's drag-and-drop user interface is intuitive and makes it easy to capture and maintain product configuration rules," said Tim Cutler, Operations Systems Manager.

"The fact that Cincom is a global company with a support center in the UK was also a big plus for us," said Cutler. "We looked at other providers, but none were able to offer the level of support and prove their solution to the same extent as Cincom."

Cincom's Sales Configurator enables complex manufacturers to capture and deliver critical application, product, pricing, and process knowledge to the point of sale -- ensuring the optimal fit between the manufacturers' product offerings and customers' needs. With Cincom, engineer-to-order or configure-to-order manufacturers have successfully streamlined sales, design, and proposal processes, reducing "quote-to-cash" time significantly.
