CAD Automation for Manufacturing
Your customers require accurate and detailed drawings and pricing to make informed decisions, but engineers are overstretched and bogged down with tedious tasks. Scaling is impossible at this point.
Sales reps and engineers are speaking a different language. Reps are submitting configurations in the form of back-of-a-napkin sketches that are unfeasible from an engineering standpoint. Cue a seemingly never-ending back-and-forth between the customer, sales, and engineering. Everything grinds to a halt, frustrating all parties.
With a tool like KBMax, sales reps can configure complex products themselves, using an intuitive visual interface. Complex engineering rules built into the configurator give reps (even new hires) a detailed understanding of product offerings and technical features without ever calling on the engineering department’s expertise. Every configuration is optimized from a technical standpoint.
Once a customer has settled on a design, the rep can automatically generate all necessary technical drawings in SolidWorks at the touch of a button. (KBMax also works with systems like AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and PTC Creo.) Say goodbye to communication breakdowns and incessant emailing. Sales cycles are shortened by 38%, and output increased by 35%. It’s a game-changer.
"Our product configurator, powered by KBMax, allowed us to systematize our engineering experience to generate customer specific products within minutes, not weeks."
"KBMax gave our customers and engineers the ability to design a water quality unit to fit their needs without waiting for a response from our sales people or waiting on a design from our CAD department."
"Beyond the visualization capabilities, KBMax has excellent integrations with Salesforce, AutoCAD and Solidworks for lots of different output workflows."
Product variation compounded by the complexity of multiple pricing models can create confusion and inefficiency among your organization’s engineering, manufacturing, and sales teams. In this four-part guide, we’ll uncover how to address challenges like these in your sales to manufacturing processes by using CPQ software.Get the eBook
