KBMax, a next-gen CPQ solution, announced today that it has been recognized as a Manufacturing Leadership Awards winner for its outstanding achievement in the Enterprise Integration and Technology category.
The winning CPQ project enabled Tuff Shed to digitally transform its entire business. Tuff Shed looked to KBMax’s technology to align its front-end quoting with back-end production to eliminate errors and wasted time. The buying process was also simplified for customers who can now configure their sheds from tuffshed.com or in-store at Home Depot.
The highlights of the digital transformation project include:
- Increased average selling price by 6%, equaling $7.6M
- Decreased material usage, saving $2M
- Decreased training time for new manufacturing team members by 90%
KBMax and Tuff Shed will be recognized at the Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which will take place as a virtual event on October 8, 2020.
