AUTOconnect: Bid Response Management
Unlock Greater Business Value
Automotive suppliers are responsible for managing many processes, including RFQ responses, sales proposals, multi-period forecasting, product design, production planning, financial analysis and more. At the same, they’re expected to proactively discover ways to cut costs, win more bids, and create accurate forecasts…which can be overwhelming at the very least.
To unlock new business value and manage processes effectively, Auto Suppliers need dynamic manufacturing solutions to connect equipment, analyze data, visualize information and integrate people and processes to be empowered to make educated, immediate business decisions.
