Configit and DLP Engineers announce partnership
June 14th 2017
Today Configit and DLP Engineers announced their partnership to jointly implement complex configuration solutions, which are currently facing large companies.
As technical consultants and converters, DLP Engineers are predominantly active in the capital goods industry, in well-known equipment-, instruments-, machinery-, plant- and automotive engineers as well as in the supplier industry.
In addition to product configuration, modularization/standardization, variant management, PDM/PLM, and optimization of the process chains, specifically in sales, development and construction, are part of the DLP portfolio.
Configit offers the most powerful product configuration technology in the industry. Leading manufacturers from all over the world rely on Configit’s CPQ (Configure Price Quote) and CLM (Configuration Lifecycle Management) software to manage their most important product lines.
With regard to the partnership, Dr. Sören Lechner, Managing Director of DLP, stated, “We are delighted to be working together with Configit in the future.
The integrated CLM approach is particularly interesting for our largest and larger customers, as well as the graphical configuration approach on the end product and the customer process – possible with Configit-Build™. In addition to the CRM, Web, CAD/PDM and ERP solutions, many companies often have a standard CPQ solution and/or a number of self-developed configurators. At the same time, however, there is a growing need for integration, consolidation and bundling of applications and data in a superior CLM solution with a uniform web interface. The topic of maintenance and worldwide updating of system-wide product logic is becoming increasingly important as product lifecycles become shorter. Here, the Virtual Tabulation™ technology from Configit can play its strength.”
“Configit is looking forward to working with DLP, where Configit can look back on the long-term experience of the DLP Engineers especially in the field of machine and plant construction, the implementation of ROI considerations, the conception and specification as well as the process optimization and system integration. In addition, topics like the inclusion of product logic, the construction of a uniform classification system for finding and/or configuring, product structuring or the piece list are important building blocks within the framework of joint projects, “explains Dr. Markus Lindemann, General Manager D/A/CH of Configit GmbH.
