Engineer to Order for Modular Building
Sell more. Build 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 Epicor CPQ, you can.
You’re stuck in a trade-off between customization and operational efficiency
The modular building market is demanding because no two buildings are the same. The more custom options you provide, the more parts you need, the more mistakes you make, and the more dissatisfied customers you have on your hands. Outputs are subject to substantial cost penalties for lateness, and you just don’t want to take the risk.
It seems impossible to automate your entire end-to-end process surrounding modular building configuration, design, engineering, and production. But the engineering-heavy nature of configuring customized structures 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 modular buildings. 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 the exact structure they’re looking for.
Your product rules are captured and put to work to ensure that every structure’s 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 a quality structure are generated automatically. You can finally connect your customers, sales, and engineering teams to the shop floor in an automated end-to-end process.
