Complex Configuration for Manufacturing
Sales reps are configuring technically (and financially) non-viable products, exacerbating engineering bottlenecks, and piling further pressure on an already stretched engineering department.
Configuration mistakes are causing delays, returns, and chargebacks. And your increasingly dissatisfied customers are starting to wonder whether they’ll receive a more streamlined buying experience from one of your competitors.
Sales reps can quickly and easily narrow down vast and highly technical product catalogs into carefully optimized customer-specific selections. And if you embed your product configurator into your website, your end customer can do it for themselves.
Human error is eliminated, the sales process is shortened, and order values increase. How? It’s all the work of CPQ product rules – the little bits of logic that govern how your products are configured and manufactured, ensuring every product is optimized from a technical and profitability standpoint.
