Fredericia Furniture has gathered all product data with a Perfion PIM Solution
At Fredericia Furniture, the Perfion Product Information Management system is now the only data source apart from Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The two systems are integrated and users now only maintain product data in one place.
Product data was manually entered into a catalog generator system used exclusively for price list creation. This was an error-prone, cumbersome and time-consuming task, which also demanded expensive consulting services because the employees could not fix bugs in the system themselves.
Price lists are calculated from Perfion
Today, Fredericia creates price lists in three languages and four different currencies directly from Perfion. It is fast and easy to produce new price lists as all data is managed in the same place. Perfion also calculates a customer-specific price list based on the information in an existing price list in no time. The result is a significant time saving.
Hanne Skovbo, S&OP Manager at Fredericia Furniture, explains:
"We chose Perfion PIM because it works seamlessly with Dynamics NAV and because we can easily adapt it to our business. We can model our product data and create screen views and tabs ourselves as we please. Now we are no longer dependent on expensive consulting services."
Dynamicweb and Perfion work together
In order to also ensure up-to-date product information on the website, Fredericia has chosen to implement the Dynamicweb platform instead of a previous CMS system because of the complete integration between Dynamicweb and Perfion.
Today, the Perfion PIM system delivers all product information, line drawings and product images directly to Dynamicweb, which then generates the view.
Hanne Skovbo has even more Perfion projects in the pipeline:
"Soon, visitors to our website will be able to download data sheets with product data generated from Perfion. Later we will also utilize Perfion better in product development - today a new product is created in the ERP system first, but in the future we will create it in Perfion instead. The advantage is that the product will end up there anyway, so we might as well gather all information in Perfion from the start and thus create a common view of what is happening throughout the whole product development phase."
By implementing the Perfion PIM solution, the company has also optimized its work processes: With branches on several locations it is a great advantage that employees now have access to the same information in one single system, in which they can all work at the same time.
