With several hundred man years of product development invested, aPriori has introduced several highly innovative technologies as part of its Product Cost Management platform that enable the benefits described above, including:
With aPriori we make better use of our resources by often shortening our time to market and reducing the time in which we can provide our customers an RFQ answer. In real numbers, with the application of aPriori, we went from eight in-house hours per quote to one hour, freeing up seven hours of our time per quote. That means aPriori can save Soucy up to 3150 hours this year alone.
We are a small team and one of our biggest challenges was trying to control and reduce costs, so we adopted aPriori, a product costing software. We were actually a beta test for them, as they typically work with much higher volume companies. Adopting a powerful piece of software like aPriori can be a big change for any company, especially for a small team. Admittedly, it took some time to set the software up properly and learn how to use it to its maximum potential. We’ve been using aPriori for about four years and the platform has overhauled my position as a cost engineer.
