Engineer to Order for Building Supplies
Sell more. Supply faster.
Wouldn't it be great if you could: sell any product simply and seamlessly no matter its complexity; provide a visual customer experience which boosts conversion rates by 40%; and run your business more efficiently by removing bottlenecks and breaking down silos between sales, operations, and engineering? Well, with KBMax, you can.
You’re stuck in a trade-off between customization and operational efficiency
The market is demanding customization, but the more personalized options you provide, the more complex ordering becomes, the more mistakes you make, and the more dissatisfied customers you have on your hands. Delivering building supplies late could have substantial cost penalties, and puts your customers, and of course your business, at risk.
It seems impossible to automate your entire end-to-end process surrounding product configuration, design, engineering, and production. But the custom and engineering-heavy nature of your configuration process is putting increasing strain on your engineering team. You need a more efficient way to provide mass customization at scale.
Eliminate errors and increase deal size while meeting the unique needs of every customer
A product configurator is an ingenious tool that automates the configuration and customization of highly complex engineer-to-order building materials. Sales reps (or end customers themselves, depending on your setup) can use the tool to narrow down vast and highly technical product catalogs into carefully optimized customer-specific selections, ensuring buyers always get exactly what they’re looking for.
Your product rules are captured and put to work to ensure that every order configuration is viable from a technical and financial perspective. Best of all, CAD files, CNC cutting data, BOMs, product renderings, and everything else required to put out quality building materials are generated automatically. You can finally connect your customers, sales, and engineering teams to the shop floor with an automated end-to-end process.
