Global Shop Integration Case Study – Global Shop Configurator
Company Name: Unex Manufacturing
Location: Jackson, NJ
Company Description: Established in 1964, Unex is a family-owned business that develops and manufactures products designed to improve the order picking process. Unex has earned a reputation as a quality manufacturer and a market leader in providing gravity flow solutions to the market.
Unex wanted to streamline its quote-to-production process and reduce quote lead time for its distributors. The company recognized that a seamless integration between its ERP system Global Shop and new product configuration software was essential. As a result, they chose Configure One’s software to be their Global Shop configurator.
Unex IT staff worked with a Global Shop consultant, utilizing Configure One’s Connect to develop the integration. Global Shop now supplies Configure One with updated customer and item master data. Once a quotation is converted to a sales order in Configure One, sales order details are passed back to Global Shop, including an order-specific item number and BOM. The integration in effect provides Unex with a Global Shop product configurator that ensures that data is only maintained in one place and is always up to date.
