The Traditional Sales Model

ERP systems subject you to a “high touch” process involving salespeople, resellers, needs analysis, presentations, proposals, references, site visits, contracts, consultants, and trainers – all of which drive up the cost of manufacturing software.

DBA Sales Model vs ERP

By contrast, our web-based sales resources enable you to explore the software on your own. We do not use technical salespeople, furnish quotations or proposals, use resellers, or give out references. In return, we pass the savings along to you with a dramatically lower product price and ongoing costs.

How We Save You Money

We do not use technical salespeople

Our web-based sales resources enable you to explore the software on your own, at your own pace. If you have technical questions, you can use our “Ask DBA” service to submit questions to our support staff.

We do not furnish quotations or proposals

DBA sells for a single package price, openly published on our website, that includes all product features without any hidden add-ons that disguise the true system price.

We do not use resellers

All sales – software, support, and maintenance – are made directly by us to you, the end user, which gives us a direct relationship with all our customers.

We do not impose on our customers

Instead of imposing on our customers’ time and privacy by giving out references, we let the product speak for itself with our unique 180 day return policy, the strongest in the manufacturing software industry.
