Experlogix Unveils Configurator Portal Edition for Microsoft Dynamics CRM

SANTA BARBARA, CA, - February 8, 2010 - Experlogix, Inc., the leading developer of sales and manufacturing configurator solutions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM and ERP announced today that it has released a portal edition of its popular configurator for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

The Experlogix Configurator Portal Edition enables organizations to expand their sales to the web by providing the guided selling power of the Experlogix Configurator within a portal to help customers, channel partners and prospects configure custom products and services to meet their unique needs. Quotes and orders configured by the Experlogix Portal Edition automatically create corresponding quotes and orders in Microsoft Dynamics CRM, improving pipeline visibility and streamlining order entry.

Experlogix customer Beachcomber Hot Tubs, (Vancouver, BC), a manufacturer of hot tubs with representation in more than 40 countries, recently launched the Experlogix Portal Edition to accelerate the quote and order process via the web for their dealer network.

"Experlogix steps a dealer through the option selection process, calculates accurate pricing, and cooperates with our ERP system fully. Our people now have access to see orders in process, and configured quotes through Microsoft Dynamics CRM allowing them to serve our customers better."

Air filtration systems manufacturer Dantherm Filtration, Inc. (Thomasville, NC) is preparing the second phase of their Experlogix Configurator implementation by extending Experlogix to their sales partners to provide self-service configuration and quoting via the web.
