Microsoft Publishes Experlogix-Driven xRM Win Story

Experlogix Configurator Also Displayed in Microsoft Fall 2009 Business Solutions Catalog

SANTA BARBARA, CA - October 14, 2009 - Experlogix, Inc., the leading developer of sales and manufacturing configurator solutions for Microsoft Dynamics®, today announces that Microsoft has published an Experlogix customer win story on its Microsoft Dynamics ISV Solutions web site. Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift Europe (MCFE) turned to Experlogix and their Certified for Microsoft Dynamics Experlogix Configurator integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM to save more than 1,250 hours of labor annually.

MCFE is a joint venture between forklift manufacturers Mitsubishi and Caterpillar. The company manufactures, sells, and distributes 18,000 forklifts and related spare parts each year. MCFE relied on manual or sometimes paper-based processes to support dealer inquiries and orders, resulting in missed orders or unanswered dealer requests. To improve the forklift configuration and ordering process, the company deployed Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 and the Experlogix Configurator. By using xRM to rapidly develop relational business applications, MCFE has increased employee productivity, improved its ability to respond to business needs, reduced development costs by 60 percent, and improved order processing times.

The Experlogix Configurator extends Microsoft Dynamics CRM into a sophisticated pricing and product configuration system by expertly guiding users through every aspect of a quote or order configuration, ensuring 100 percent accuracy. Built on the same .NET/SQL Server platform as Dynamics CRM, the two systems integrate seamlessly to provide a natural and intuitive user experience.

Experlogix also appears in the Fall 2009 Microsoft Dynamics Business Solutions Catalog which lists Independent Software Vendor (ISV) solutions that are thoroughly tested and proven to meet Microsoft's highest standards for partner solutions. Experlogix is the only ISV focused exclusively to the development of product configurators to appear in this catalog . The publication is a record of proven, trusted, certified solutions for faster implementation and simpler maintenance. These solutions complement and are tested to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Dynamics products to meet industry-specific requirements and local language, tax, and governmental regulations.
