Atrium Selects BuyDesign Web-based Sales Solution
TDCI Inc. of Columbus, Ohio, announced that Atrium Companies Inc. has selected TDCI's BuyDesign software solution as the basis for a new web-based online sales and service system. According to a press release from TDCI, Atrium, a manufacturer of vinyl and aluminum windows and patio doors, will use the program's collaborative multi-level sales channel support capabilities and product configuration technology to offer online quoting, ordering and status inquiry services to the company's regional dealer networks. Atrium has executed an enterprise-level license for initial use of the software at five divisions, with an option for two more.
"We chose the BuyDesign solution primarily because of its configuration capabilities, including its templates for window and door products," said Mark Blanchat, Atrium executive vice president of strategy and development.
According to the release, the decision to license the program followed a successful pilot implementation at Atrium's Washington division manufacturing facility in Yakima, Wash. The division is already live with the new solution, and is now in the process of introducing it to customers in that region.
"Our customers are very enthusiastic about the capabilities we've introduced using BuyDesign," said Peter Venerdi, Atrium Washington general manager. "They can now configure products, generate quotes and place orders on their own any time of the day."
Following the success of Atrium Washington, the company is now developing implementation
plans at the company's window and door division in Texas and California, as well
as its HR Windows division.
