CAD Automation for Modular Building
Sell more. Build faster.
You’re striving to shorten sales cycles, but engineering bottlenecks are slowing everything down
Your customers demand accurate and detailed drawings to make informed purchase decisions on their building, but this places a heavy burden on engineering, creating a bottleneck in the sales pipeline that delays quote request responses and forces customers into the arms of competitors.
Meanwhile, sales reps are struggling to configure and sketch customizations to right-fit a structure for their customers. They’re submitting configurations that are little more than “wishlists,” and engineers are expected to convert them into products that will actually function in the real world.
Automatically generate CAD files and create technical drawings without any input from engineering
KBMax enables sales reps for manufactured and production buildings to configure complicated 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 ever calling on the engineering department’s expertise. Every configuration is optimized from a technical standpoint.
Once a customer has settled on a design, reps can automatically generate their own drawings to bundle with quotes, and generate all necessary technical drawings for engineering in CAD (SolidWorks, AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, and PTC Creo) 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.
“Companies that implement 3D product visualization solutions see significant improvement in their deal win rate, lower costs for drafting computer-aided design (CAD) drawings, less rework in the factory and lower carrying costs for samples at retail locations.”
“We have a simple product with numerous and sometimes complex and unlimited option catalog. KBMax [Epicor CPQ] allows us to handle 95% of the custom requests without needing to use outside drawing programs to meet the customer’s needs. ”
Overcoming the Complexity of the Sales to Manufacturing Process
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.
