abas-USA and Atlatl SRP Software Announce Partnership

abas-USA and Atlatl Sales Resource Planning (SRP) Software Announced Their Partnership to Provide SRP Capability to abas ERP Users; The Partnership Aims to Deliver an Improved User Experience by Streamlining the Selling and Manufacturing Processes for Com

CHARLESTON, SC and STERLING, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- Atlatl Software, a Six Axis LLC Company and pioneer of the software category "sales resource planning" (SRP), and abas-USA, a leader in mid-market enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, announced their partnership to provide abas-USA customers with Atlatl SRP software. The joint announcement was made by Matt Carter, COO of Atlatl SRP software and Alan Salton, president of abas-USA. Under the terms of the agreement, which took effect January 1, 2014, the abas-USA sales team will market Atlatl SRP software to its customers and prospects.

"We're enthusiastic about the opportunity to drive a significant shift in the ERP market whereby our combined ERP and SRP expertise will deliver a much improved customer experience when purchasing complex engineered-to-order products," said Salton.

Both companies expressed a growing demand from small and mid-size manufacturers to add value by enabling greater customization -- a key focus of the partnership.

"Our partnership with abas-USA underscores a growing trend to enable more cost-effective 'mass customization' by streamlining the entire customer order value stream from initial sales visit to final delivery," said Carter.

He explained that the partnership supports increased market demand for greater front-end (sales) and back-end (manufacturing) integration. This integration will improve the efficiency and accuracy of the design and specification process while enabling planning and manufacturing to maintain the highest quality standards.

Simplifying the complexity of selling and manufacturing configurable products
Atlatl SRP software integrates engineering rules, parts masters and pricing information into an innovative 3D, virtualized interface. Using a laptop or gestures on an iPad®, sale reps render a 360 degree simulation of the product configuration as it will appear in the customer's native system. A quote, complete with engineering drawings and bill of materials, can be issued.

Atlatl SRP solutions represent a paradigm shift in the way companies can interact with customers and prospects. Real time interactions -- from CRM and configurations to quoting and creating bills of material -- accelerate delivery performance. Deep integration into abas ERP gives the customer an end-to end solution that includes MRP, scheduling, procurement management, inventory, service and complete financials. It is a total solution for configure-to-order, build-to-order and engineer-to-order manufacturers.

"Atlatl adds value in the upstream sales and order entry process and abas-USA does the same for downstream manufacturing. Together we provide a substantial competitive advantage -- top line growth and bottom line savings for manufacturers of complex, configurable products," said Rob Honeycutt, Atlatl CEO.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
