March 12, 2024

Insight Works propels manufacturing into the future with the launch of Product Configurator v3.9, enhancing Dynamics 365 Business Central's efficiency in BOM and routing creation.

Insight Works, a leading provider of applications for manufacturing and distribution for Dynamics 365 Business Central, is pleased to announce the release of Product Configurator v3.9. This latest version introduces enhancements designed to streamline the creation of Bills of Materials (BOMs) and routings, addressing the critical challenges manufacturers face within the Dynamics 365 Business Central ecosystem.

In the complex manufacturing world, the efficiency and accuracy of generating quotes and orders are paramount. However, the intricacies in creating BOMs and routings have historically required extensive manual effort, leading to potential inaccuracies and a lack of adaptability. Insight Works’ Product Configurator app has long been recognized as the solution to these challenges, and with the upgrade to v3.9, it cements its position as the essential tool for manufacturing efficiency.
