Better adaptation to the needs of the business
Many factory, project and management processes can be optimized through Promob Solutions.

In addition, architects and interior designers who already work in the area also benefit.
"Basically, liberal professionals have time as a major constraint on their ability to produce and, consequently, earn income. The solutions for this audience are aimed at making projects with high quality in the shortest possible time, and presenting them using realistic (rendered) photo images, "says Marcos.
Joinery workers are also able to obtain solutions that provide greater support for their activities, besides delivering a series of functionalities and advantages, such as:
visual presentation of the project;
flat plate cutting plane;
customer portfolio management;
integration with machines.
Companies that operate in the industry producing and marketing semi-serial or planned furniture obtains faster information exchange with resale points. This is because libraries with products, rules, and prices are updated for all active licenses distributed throughout the store network.
Organizations that operate with serial furniture benefit from the facilities of Promob Solutions. For example, they are able to ease the sales process by helping to drive the end consumer of a self-made project to the shopping cart on the e-commerce sites .
The possibilities for integration are increasing as the solutions chosen are more robust. This is the case with carpenters who start working with stores.
In the case of the furniture industry, the adoption of Promob Manager allows the consolidation of all the information in a store network, so order data can be sent directly from the stores to the factory ERP. As seen in the beginning the Promob ERP itself is able to integrate processes from multiple sectors of the factories.
There is also integration of stages of the production chain, especially in organizations that operate with serial furniture.
"Product libraries are updated in Web application. After assembly of a project, through some of our solutions, it is even possible to automatically budget with various e-commerce sites. The order is generated directly in the e-commerce shopping cart ", comments the executive.
Reduction of costs
Promob Solutions helps reduce business costs. For example, small and medium-sized lumber dealers often have trouble calculating their costs correctly. As a result, they have difficulty setting prices in an appropriate and competitive way. This can be solved by employing the right tools.
"To the extent that the software allows for accurate forecasting and control of raw material needs, the processes required and when they are to be executed, the company now has subsidies for an adequate management of its resources," notes Mark. "Whether they are capital, personnel or installed capacity."
In this way, the company buys only what is needed and when it is needed. It can also reduce or eliminate rework and inventory, and maximize the utilization of your equipment and equipment. All this generates cost savings and optimization.
Higher quality of services provided to final customer
With specific Promob Solutions, interior architects / designers can present to the final consumer images that are very close to reality, enchanting the client and giving him a correct understanding of the ideas proposed in the project. Soon, he will be more satisfied when the materialization of the project shows itself faithful to what has been shown.
Lately, the number of cabinetmakers capable of delivering quality products and competitive prices has grown in relation to the planned furniture industries. Therefore, the final consumer has a lot more options for acquiring furniture.
Much of this is due to the use of technological tools that optimize and streamline woodworking processes, increasing their competitiveness.
Industries that work with semi-serial furniture can quickly update furniture models, finishing standards and styles, delivering a wide range of possibilities to the customer.
"Due to this high number of possibilities, it is rarely possible to have products in the various models and finishes in the store," says Marcos. "The software allows us to simulate the environments and clarify doubts of the final consumer about combinations of colors, finishes and sizes, for example," explains Marcos.
Customers in the mobile furniture industries also benefit from Promob Solutions. "The consumer has autonomy for the elaboration of projects, without the necessity of the presence of a professional", comments the executive. "It has access to a variety of manufacturers and product options and can make quotes and buy online without intermediaries."
Planned furniture factories are also winning. Once the project is defined, the production and delivery of a planned furniture is very fast. Once the order has been sent to the factory, with production capacity, in less than a week the product may have already been produced.
Thanks to the advances and potential of the software used, the production ends up being very fast, so that the logistics of delivery and assembly ends up taking more time than the manufacturing itself.
As seen in this guide on Promob Solutions, there are different systems for different management, production and furniture design needs. However, with the right programs, it is possible to increase the productivity and quality of the projects delivered.
However, to correctly choose the ideal solution, Marcos advises that it is important to evaluate the type of product produced, the size of your business and the sales channels. Also, you need to observe your store pattern. Based on these indicators it will be possible to propose some solutions more adaptable to their processes.
In addition, for a correct definition of the ideal solutions for each segment, it is essential to understand: the moment the company is living; their difficulties; their physical and organizational structure; the profile of its customers; their investment capacity; and their strategies for the future, "says Marcos. "Only the combined view of these aspects will allow us to identify the most appropriate solutions," he concludes.
