1. Your customers expect a quick response with the right cable
Wire & cable companies typically have large product portfolios with hundreds of different constructions. Only a limited set of these products are being sold in a year. Your sales team should be able to navigate quickly to the products that meet the customer requirements. The ERP system should offer powerful search capabilities, based on the required cable specifications.
2. Your customers expect the right cable lengths
The wire & cable industry has a special type of calculus. In this cable calculus 200 plus 100 doesn’t equal 300. A telecom network installer will not accept two drums with lengths of 200m and 100m when the order was for one 300m cable. Also, customers are specific about the length tolerances that they accept: you customer can reject the cable if the actual length of the cable is outside this range. The ERP system should therefor be able to handle lengths properly.
3. Your customers expect cables delivered on the right drums
Cables are usually delivered on drums. Not every drum suits every cable. The right drum type depends on customer preferences and the capacity of the drum, based on weight, length and bending radius of the cable. The ERP system should facilitate selecting the right drum for each specific cable delivery.
