Inventory Optimization, 3-D Sales Applications, and Quote-to-order Basics

If you want a quick return on investment (ROI) from your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, the surest way to get it is through inventory optimization. The problem is, many companies don't want to kick in the (relatively) few extra dollars it takes to get a dedicated ERP inventory optimization module. Find out why that can be a big mistake in today's feature white paper.

Thanks to the Internet, customers no longer have to rely on your salespeople for product information. So what can your salespeople do to fill that gap, engage the customer, and close the sale? It's 3-D applications to the rescue, as you'll discover in today's feature article.

In today's second feature article, learn about the challenges involved in making the transition from mass production to mass customization, and how tools like quote-to-order (Q2O) can help you succeed.
