Configit A/S, the global leader in Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM), today announced its newest customer the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS GROUP. NORD is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of drive technologies. Employing more than 4,000 people globally, NORD produces gears and industrial gears, electric motors, frequency inverters, motor starters and frequency inverters for decentralized drive control.
With complexity increasing in their product offerings, solutions, and markets, NORD needed to streamline internal processes between Microsoft Dynamics CRM and SAP, and external processes with partners.
“The harmonization of our internal and external sales process was a key driver of this initiative,” said Jens Paulsen, Managing Director at NORD. “The automation and integration of the configuration process between web shop, website and our system architecture will be significantly improved by Configit and will facilitate our business and access to our products.”
The goal of this new platform solution from Configit is to enable both internal stakeholders and external dealers and partners to sell complex products faster and easier. Using this new CPQ solution will also help optimize NORD’s product models.
With aggressive growth targets in the next five years, NORD realized the need to reduce complexity and enable their large dealer network to configure and sell NORD’s products faster and easier in a fully digitized process.
“Our guided configuration and patented Virtual Tabulation® technology were the key drivers of our winning proposal,” said Marc Weinhold, Sales Director EMEA at Configit. “As a market-leading company that strives for continued growth, NORD is in an ideal position to implement smart digitization and CLM strategies that will achieve larger market shares in the future while significantly reducing complexity today.”
NORD’s existing product configurator in their web site and web shop environment will be replaced by Configit’s modeling platform and Configit Quote® for product configuration at run-time seamlessly integrated into SAP.
Configit is the global leader in Configuration Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions and a supplier of business-critical software for the configuration of complex products. All Configit products are based on their patented Virtual Tabulation® technology, which has redefined product configuration by offering greater speed and better handling of complexity. Virtual Tabulation® enables Configit to deliver powerful, easy to use configuration solutions to market-leading global enterprises.
