Cincom Sponsors the SAP Configuration Workgroup European Conference

Event Focuses on Business Benefits Within the Quotation, Bidding and Estimating Processes of Complex Manufacturers

MAIDENHEAD, UNITED KINGDOM -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- Cincom Systems ( is pleased to sponsor the Spring 2007 SAP® Configuration Workgroup Conference at the Renaissance Salzburg Hotel Congress Centre in Salzburg, Austria, May 7, 8, and 9.

The conference theme is "The Configuration Ecosystem" with topics centred on how the configuration community -- with ERP and other critical business process environments -- can function successfully together.

Cincom will show how its products help SAP customers enhance their quotation, proposal, bidding and estimating processes. The Cincom offering integrates out-of-the-box with SAP and shares its customer and quotation data with the SAP system, feeding configured sales orders directly into the SAP Order Management and SAP Variant Configurator modules. It's specifically designed to assist complex manufacturers -- such as those specialising in engineer-to-order, made-to-order, or configured-to-order manufacturing -- with the most complex product configurations and proposals.

Cincom customer SMIT Textile, a manufacturer of flexible rapier and air jet weaving machines, will present how product configuration is a critical business process with pricing an ever more dominant factor. The ability to capture very specific customer requirements and respond quickly with a complete product solution offers a competitive advantage in this highly technical and specialised industry. SMIT will illustrate how it is finding new ways to continuously increase its double digit market share by improving its guided selling and proposal management processes.

In addition to Cincom customer SMIT speaking at the conference, Cincom will have personnel available throughout the conference to discuss how the Cincom Quote-To-Order solution can complement the SAP application environment.

The Configuration Workgroup (CWG) ( is an international user group of SAP customers and partners, focused on the topic of product configuration as implemented in the Variant Configurator (VC) and in the SAP Internet Pricing and Configurator (SAP IPC).
