Build what they want, when they want it
As a furniture manufacturer, you face many complex business challenges. You have to offer hundreds or thousands of options and expect that virtually every order is a unique one that must be fulfilled accurately and efficiently. But your make-to-order (MTO) business model isn’t your only complex challenge. Household and office furniture manufacturers must also contend with intense price competition from low-cost countries, a high sensitivity to shifts in the economy and interest rates, numerous safety and environmental regulations, and shortages in skilled labor.
There’s only one way to keep up—create a strategy that increases the effectiveness and efficiency of sales, manufacturing, engineering, and marketing, thereby enabling increased sales, reduced costs, and a stronger brand. Infor® Product Configuration Management (PCM) solutions are designed to help companies that manufacture and sell custom furniture and window treatments meet these strategic objectives.

IN THE WORDS OF A CUSTOMER:
"With AIT Business Services managing the implementation, all critical functions were operational on day one. It is refreshing to work with an organization that does what it says it is going to do."
- Charles Lawrence, President
Help customers visualize their order
Provide your sales team with visualization tools to use in the ordering process, so customers see realistic images of style and accessory choices they make for furniture pieces or window treatments. By enhancing their buying experience with personalized renderings of the final product, you’ll enhance your sales.
Better manage product transitions
Manage transitions quickly and easily as you create a new line-up of offerings. You can roll out new fabrics, finishes, dimensions, and pricing electronically and according to your exact plan. You can also roll out minor product and price changes at any time to incorporate new innovations or adapt to new sales strategies.
Upsell more effectively
Sales reps receive tools to help them offer high-margin accessories and features that improve the profit-per-sale. As the order is configured, reps can see the projected profit, so they can make suggestions that meet margin objectives and customer requirements.
"ERP implementations/upgrades are necessary for a growing business, we couldn’t have been successful without the AIT family. Their dedication, ownership and guidance on the project exceeded our expectations."
