As the enterprise solution to integrate Sales, Engineering and Manufacturing, ProductCenter will assist Hayward Tyler in overcoming several business challenges including the requirement for controlled access to all product and contract information to ensure regulatory compliance. Collaboration throughout the organization will be significantly improved by providing the field sales and engineering groups with global, 7x24 access to accelerate the exchange of information and facilitate timely resolution of product and contract related issues.
Additionally, ProductCenter will manage the Sales Quote to Product Order Process as well as the 3D CAD product designs. Automation of the Engineering Change and Drawing Release processes and enabling Engineering to manage the Bill of Material (BOM) will ultimately improve the efficiency of the release to manufacturing process and a downstream integration to Hayward Tyler’s ERP solution will facilitate the exchange of information across the Enterprise.
“Hayward Tyler expects ProductCenter to make a tremendous impact on our data management practices as well as our business processes right out of the gate,” states Chad Thelen, ProductCenter PLM Project Lead. “ProductCenter will facilitate secure access and sharing of product design and contract information throughout our organization and accelerate product development as well as our order quoting and processing efforts.”
