A cutting edge integrated single database architecture and best-in-class configurator, providing a central point of control and integration for all product and engineering data, set Frontier's ERP solution apart from other ERP systems, the company reports. Its configurator technology, which the supplier estimates is a full two years ahead of the competition, has helped to establish the company as the niche leader in high-volume, multi-plant and complex make-to-order manufacturing of windows, doors and other building products. Its latest version, Frontier 2.2, includes a wide array of functionality that serves business needs from end to end. Its core distribution functions include customer order processing, customer service, EDI, sales analysis, warehouse management, purchasing and receiving, service and warranty and truck scheduling. It also includes fully integrated dealer quoting tools. To help streamline manufacturing operations, the system provides forecasting, scheduling, materials planning, detailed capacity planning, engineering change control, inventory control and scrap rework processing. All these functions feed information into a powerful financial system, which includes AR/AP, credit collections, general ledger, budgeting, financial reporting, product costing and more.
