Allowing customers to configure their own version of a product to meet unique specifications is an e-tailers answer to the “maker movement” and a trend that is providing competitive advantage. From bathroom walls to window treatments, Jeff has specialized in helping our clients create custom configuration tools that provide a way to sell highly customized, non-sku-based products to customers in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-configure, and easy-to-picture way. Once a custom product is designed, the requirements are communicated directly to manufacturing. Gone are the days of designing something on paper and having the customer wait days or weeks to find out how much it will cost and when it will be made. The key to a successful custom configuration tool is recognizing that it is not just an IT project, but rather an all-encompassing project involving marketing, sales, and manufacturing. If you want to empower your customers to build their own products, Jeff can help.
Today, many of our clients have a complex web of systems in place that need to communicate data between each other. E-commerce systems need to integrate with ERP systems; ERP systems need to talk to marketing systems. Throw in cloud-based SASS systems, and it becomes even more complicated. One of the things Jeff most enjoys is working with clients to develop an understanding of how to connect the dots, and then advising, selecting and implementing the appropriate tools to make the connections happen. Whether you’re linking webservices, rest services, file extraction, or directly to databases, Jeff looks forward to helping you untangle the rat’s nest of system integration.
