PrefWeb permits users / dealers to create orders over the internet using only a standard browser. As a web-based system, deployment can be internal (through various branches or offices located throughout North America), or external (reaching to dealer networks and even end-users).
As long as the user has internet access, PrefWeb allows orders to receive full CAD validation and resolution.
Real-time order statuses provide full visibility for administrators and managers, showing order acceptance and creation. Additionally, projected plant floor release and delivery dates are automatically made available to users that log in to see progress updates on their order.
PrefWeb is now enabled with the next generation product configurator, PrefOne, with enhanced graphics capabilities for full 3D rendering.
PrefGest is the business co-ordinating component of PrefSuite, and contains all aspects of an advanced ERP system, including:
• Quotation and order entry
• Management tools
• Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
• Master Production Scheduling (MPS)
• Capacity and labour planning
• Production scheduling
• Production status updates and work center feedback
From quotation through to invoicing, at each step along the way, PrefGest optimizes the coordination and management of your company’s departments and divisions.
Customer service level improvement is a major benefit, due to PrefGest’s unique visibility afforded through scheduling production based on delivery commitments and coordination of production, materials management, purchasing and shipping.
PrefGest is designed to be installed locally at the plant, however, there is also a dealer version available with all above modules except the production systems. The dealer system can be operated while it is connected to the internet as well as when it is offline. When it is online, order submission, confirmation, production statistics, projected shipping dates and engineering changes are automatically uploaded to the dealer using our proprietary PrefSuite Data Exchange (PDE) technology. Software updates, product catalogues, and pricing are also automatically updated using PDE.
Whether using PrefWeb or the PrefGest dealer version, the technology ensures that the dealer and the manufacturer are using compatible software and the latest product and pricing information in order to exchange business-critical information.
