One software that manages projects successfully while digitalizing all processes, a dream of many shopfitters and architectural millworkers, whose core business is project-based. This dream will come true at Holz Handwerk in Nuremberg: 2020 Technologies GmbH will present its ERP System 2020 Insight to these strategically important target groups for the first time.
Integrated ERP solution with a focus on production and materials supply chain management
With more than 300 installations, 2020 Insight is the leading ERP industry solution for cabinet, furniture and wood product manufacturers. It impresses with modules covering the entire process chain, flexible workflows and freely definable rules.
The main advantages of 2020 Insight for cabinet, furniture and wood product manufacturers are the sales order processing module with included graphical planning and automated part list generation, the construction capabilities with bi-directional interfaces to CAD/CAM systems, planning and execution of production with direct machine integration, and the purchasing and warehouse capabilities. Having developed new functionalities, 2020 Insight is a unique all-in-one solution for architectural millworkers and shopfitters organizations.
New estimating functionality
One new highlight for architectural millworkers and shopfitters is the bidding module. It enables companies to structure offers according to customer requirements into the organizational units desired by the customer, to offer alternative offers with little effort as well as to quickly carry out offer adaptions despite complex special requests. A great advantage of the new bidding module is that offers can be automatically converted into projects and orders when an agreement is reached with a customer. A large amount of work involved in manually creating orders from quotations is eliminated and so are the potential errors.
New functionalities in project management, project controlling and project accounting
The extended project administration enables project managers to take over all required information and structures from offers and to store additional project-relevant information within the project in a clear and concise way. Furthermore, the integration of Outlook and the possibility to automatically monitor defined inboxes with rules and to trigger follow-up actions, help companies to implement projects efficiently.
2020 Insight allows you to have an overview of the current costs in relation to the planned costs and the adherence to the project time schedule with the help of individualized real-time online reports, dashboards and statistics. Deviations can be directly seen, so that immediate actions can be taken in consultation with the customer.
Another new feature is the possibility of recording additional costs besides the actual production costs, that allowing projects to be invoiced according to actual accrued time and effort or a schedule of values. In addition, it is also possible to perform a post-calculation covering all costs. The preparation of offers, including an accurate preliminary costing, is also easier thanks to the access of recorded costs of the past. Therefore, realistic and economically lucrative offers can be submitted while surprises for architectural millworkers and shopfitters and their customers are thus avoided.
To improve cash flow, 2020 Insight also offers new billing options. Companies involved in project business can quickly and easily generate partial invoices and final invoices for completed units or work steps at any time. This has serious implications, especially for large projects that last over a long period of time.
Highlight: New service and installation functionality with integrated IOS/Android APP
With the service and installation functionality, architectural millworkers and shopfitters can plan installation dates by simply assigning the appropriate resources based on qualifications. In combination with the service module, 2020 offers a mobile app for installation at the customer's premises. In the assembly app, assemblers can access all information relevant to the installation, including assembly instructions, drawings and customer’s special requests.
With the help of this information, the assembler can always provide the right information to the customer on-sight and in case of reclamations or other adjustment requirements, initiate production or the "subsequent delivery process", so that valuable time can be saved. In addition, detailed information increases the quality of the assembler’s feedback, as he can select for example the exact reclaimed part from the parts list within the app.
With complete coverage of all value-added processes and the integrated project management functionalities, 2020 Insight enables users to implement projects profitably and professionally. Architectural millworkers and shopfitters are capable of having their projects under control at all times with a high degree of efficiency in terms of costs and time. In addition, the transparency ensures that projects are handled optimally, which finally results in highly satisfied customers.
