World Class Manufacturer Fabco-Air Saves Over 4400 Customer Service Hours Per Year with Godlan and Infor CPQ

/ -- CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - Godlan, a manufacturing ERP software specialist (Infor CloudSuite™ Industrial - SyteLine), Infor CPQ (Configure Price Quote) specialist, and Infor Gold Channel Partner, announced today that top manufacturer Fabco-Air has implemented Infor CPQ software in their organization and have realized significant operational benefits. Fabco-Air was founded in 1958 by Alfred W. Schmidt in Cleveland, Ohio. Best known for their Pancake® cylinder, the product line has grown extensively. Fabco-Air's facility includes more than 61,000 sq. ft., including in-house engineering, production, and assembly.

Fabco-Air wanted to address critical business challenges such as providing self-service capabilities to prospects and customers. They wanted to rise above competition by offering quick response with high accuracy to customers and prospects. They average over 200 quotes per day both domestic and internationally, and wanted to provide a 24x7 experience with full quoting and ordering capabilities.

"Infor Configure Price Quote has made Fabco-Air more responsive to customers and at the same time drastically reduced our cost of order estimating - a win for our customers and us." - Mike Russell, IT Administrator, Fabco-Air Inc.

Since the go-live of CPQ software, Fabco-Air now offers 24x7 access to self-service product configuration and ordering. They have realized significant reductions to manual customer service activities, all while increasing customer responsiveness. Errors have dropped to near zero by eliminating manual configuration methods. Customer created configurations are automatically validated allowing a smoother transition to the manufacture process.

"With CPQ we have reduced our manual customer service activities by over 17 hours per day, allowing us to better utilize our people resources." - Mike Russell, IT Administrator, Fabco-Air Inc.

Fabco-Air has also created a unique offer in their market, fondly named "Deconstructor", which allows a customer to enter a known part number of an item to get a fully configured sub-assembly parts list - allowing them to identify the individual components that makeup that item. Additionally, CPQ has an intuitive drag and drop rule builder allowing staff with limited to no software programming knowledge to maintain the solution themselves.
