Cincom Systems Launches Advanced Manufacturing ERP Solution

Cincom Systems has been providing enterprise software solutions and services since 1968, but its own Cincom CONTROL ERP system has not seen many new customers of late (see TEC’s article). Thus, at the Microsoft Convergence 2014 conference, the vendor announced the launch of its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, the Cincom Business Suite, an advanced version of Microsoft Dynamics AX for manufacturers.
Microsoft selected Cincom as its lead global partner for enhancing the Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics CRM platforms to enable manufacturers of highly engineered-to-order (ETO) products to make internal processes as flawless as possible. Cincom Business Suite adds specialized selling, engineering, contract, project, and aftermarket service capabilities into the aforementioned Microsoft Dynamics products.
ETO manufacturing has not really been a stronghold for Microsoft Dynamics AX. To that end, the offering should be able to leverage Cincom’s traditionally strong capabilities such as configure, price, quote (CPQ) management, estimating, project-based planning, revision-based planning, contract management, product data management (PDM), service management, and others. SAP, IFS, Oracle, Epicor, Infor, and other ETO ERP providers should be on alert.
