Software to Configure By

Configuration Solution offers proposal generator and document management app

Kalamazoo, MI  August 30, 2002  Configuration Solutions Inc., a provider of configuration software, said it has launched its CS-Publish solution  a proposal generator and document management application that allows organizations to configure, price and execute product and service orders for customers. CS-Publish is an extension of the CS-Enterprise software solution suite for product and service environments.

Configuration Solutions said CS-Publish is designed to generate on-demand quotes and proposals for product/service offerings with variable and diversified components; or for goods/services that are customized by enumerating (through a large database) feature- and function-based information.

According to the company CS-Publish also creates a pricing and lead-time proposal that can accommodate variable textual and graphical content. The proposal is then stored in a database, can be accessed in different formats, and used with other functional requirements across the enterprise  from order entry to engineering and on the factory floor.

Dale Colosky, CEO of Configuration Solutions Inc., said, "In order to lead an industry, manufacturing and service companies must improve the processes surrounding the delivery of accurate and flexible pricing models. The result is cutting lead and delivery times while servicing customers at the highest level."

Configuration Solutions said its technology is built on an open, object-based architecture, and it works in Internet, intranet and extranet applications.
