BCT & SAE announce cooperation and introduce product configuration solution for sales

Announcement of cooperation between SAE and BCT

BCT and SAE announce cooperation and introduce a solution that enables profitable and sustainable usage of Teamcenter data and variant configurations in sales.

30th October 2020

“With this step we want to bundle our competences in the areas of CPQ and Teamcenter and are convinced that we can provide companies with a solution that improves their competitiveness as a result of our long-term expertise,” explains Klaus Erdrich, CEO of BCT.
The configurator provides companies with a solution that enables their worldwide sales network to create quotations quickly and without any errors.
Since the solution is provided as a web application, it can also be used by distributor channels or prospects and customers to configure an order. “This way, the configuration of multi-variant and complex installations, systems and products is just as simple as configuring a car, including prices, variants and country-specific requirements,” says Erich Schaarschmidt, Managing Director at SAE. The modular product assembly kits created in Teamcenter with the help of libraries, product structures, relationship knowledge and bill of material assignments are brought together with commercial data from the existing systems in the SAE platform and bundled centrally in the SAE CPQ or SAE 3D CPQ solution.

The solution ensures consistent data management, reduces sources of error and thereby significantly contributes to the digitalization of business processes. It ensures that quotations are created quickly using data that is always up-to-date and correct, and digitally maps the entire company know-how.

Founded in 1998, SAE convinces with a competence mix of high-level SAP® know-how, high-level process excellence and outstanding performance in software development. SAE is among others a SAP® Silver Partner.

As a Platinum Solution Partner and certified Smart Expert Partner of Siemens PLM for Teamcenter with decades of experience in the manufacturing industry, BCT has proven its expertise through numerous successful Teamcenter projects.

In this video we and BCT Technology AG demonstrate how variant diversity and its dependencies are intelligently mapped using the Teamcenter product configuration (version 12.4). Afterwards, the Teamcenter configurations and the business data such as prices from the ERP (e.g. SAP® S4 Hana) are imported into the SAE CPQ at the push of a button and linked to the 3D models (basic CAD data).
