LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vision33, the largest global value added reseller (VAR) for SAP Business One, today announced the release of e2o (Engineer to Order), a specialised industry solution for project-driven manufacturers, suppliers, and service companies. The comprehensive system offers project management, control, and budgeting functionality for companies in an engineer to order (ETO) or project-oriented production and delivery environment. e2o is available starting today for businesses in need of a new or replacement project planning system or for current SAP Business One users looking to extend their project control capabilities.
“The launch of e2o is going to open doors for both our existing customers extending their use of SAP Business One and for new customers looking for an integrated solution to manage their engineering business”, says Neil Feingold, Vice President, Vision33 Europe region. “The UK has a long heritage in engineering and design. This solution will allow these companies to better control their processes to ensure they remain competitive in a changing business landscape”.
e2o addresses the needs of businesses that require a solution to align all areas of project management including planning, budgeting, quoting and estimating, material and capacity planning, and time and material tracking.
