KBMax Snap Rules Engine
Get set up right away and easily maintain your configurator with the help of our revolutionary advanced CPQ rules engine, KBMax Snap. Unlike other CPQ platforms, it’s robust enough to handle complex mathematical functions, product rules, and manufacturing data.
Gain greater consistency and reliability in the engineering and manufacturing processes with rules that enforce proper configuration and design.
To build rules in Snap, you simply drag blocks from the toolbox and snap them together to form logic statements.
Snap thinks like you do. Need to set an image? Select and see the image right in the rule. Snap blocks contain dropdowns, color-pickers, buttons, etc. to make your job easier.
Our customers have complex products that demand complex rules. Snap is not limited like other text-based rule languages. It is Turing Complete, meaning it can build any advanced algorithm.
Advanced Language Features:
Snap blocks include visual cues to reduce errors. There is real-time validation that tells you exactly what’s wrong as you write the rule. Clicking the validation error takes you straight to the problem area, and presents a way to fix it.
If you don’t have a way to debug your rules, you’re shooting in the dark. Snap rules can be debugged using any of the built-in browser debuggers.
Directly access your product data through a database or web services layer for a “single source of truth”. Your rules are based on product master metadata and attributes to provide resiliency over fragile SKU references.
This dramatically speeds up the set-up of your product configurator and allows you to easily maintain your rules. Our environments also provide a powerful release and deployment mechanism.
Multiple sales channels like dealers, distributors, and reps often require special pricing workflows. You can easily set up these custom approval loops to automate discounting, email notification, and transfer to other business systems like your ERP.
Many CPQ solutions allow you to "bundle" products for quoting, but KBMax does it differently with a powerful rules engine.
