CAD Automation for Building Supplies
Sell more. Supply faster.
Transform building product sales to shorten sales cycles and help out engineering – because it’s more complicated than just selling bundles of 2x4s
Your customers demand accurate and detailed quotes with supporting drawings to make informed purchase decisions. But this places a heavy burden on engineering. Waiting on technical drawings creates bottlenecks in the sales pipeline, delaying quote request responses and forcing customers into the arms of competitors.
Meanwhile, sales reps are grappling with configuring right-fit solutions for their customers. They’re submitting material configurations that are little more than “wishlists,” and engineers are expected to figure out how to make it all work together in the real world.
Cue a seemingly never-ending back-and-forth between the customer, sales, and engineering. Everything grinds to a halt, frustrating all parties – impacting sales and profitability.
Automatically generate CAD files and create technical drawings without any input from engineering
KBMax allows sales reps to configure complex products 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 any engineering input. Every configuration is optimized from a technical standpoint.
Once a customer has settled on a design, reps can instantly generate drawings to bundle with quotes, as well as technical drawings for engineering in CAD (SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and PTC Creo) – all at the touch of a button.
Say goodbye to communication breakdowns and incessant emailing. Sales cycles are shortened by 38%, and output increased by 35%. It’s a game-changer.
