Cincom Aims to Help Manufacturers of Highly Engineered Products Win More Business

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2013) - With U.S. manufacturers not expected to recover to their pre-recession growth level until the first quarter of 2015, manufacturers are looking for innovative ways to rapidly improve their businesses. One such way is provided by worldwide software provider, Cincom Systems, who announced today the immediate availability of a new set of selling applications for its Cincom Total™ enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution (

Adding Sophisticated Configure, Price, Quote Capabilities to Microsoft Dynamics® AX

The Cincom Total ERP selling applications add sophisticated configure, price, quote (CPQ) estimating and proposal-generation capabilities to Microsoft Dynamics AX. Together, these capabilities provide a full range of tools that manufacturers of highly engineered products need to win more business.

"Many U.S. manufacturers today sell solutions that consist of a combination of products, engineering work and field services," said Dave Schwarber, managing director of Cincom Manufacturing Business Solutions. "Proposals for those sales require a lot more than a simple price quote. They require pulling together configurations and costs from multiple places along with sometimes substantial engineering, installation and after-market maintenance services. Until now, companies have needed to piece together their proposals using many different systems and spreadsheets. With Cincom, this can become a much faster, more integrated process."

Cincom's selling applications have helped businesses:

  • Cut 66 percent from the cost of every quote
  • Achieve 100 percent configuration accuracy
  • Reduce lead times by 51 percent  

Cincom Total ERP's sell applications can be deployed on their own with standard Microsoft Dynamics AX or as part of the complete Cincom Total ERP solution.

Today's announcement was made at AXUG Summit 2013. Cincom will showcase Cincom Total in booth 633.
