Manufacturing Automation for High Tech
Sell complex equipment more easily and manufacture it 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.
Manual processes built into your operations are creating errors and inefficiencies
You want to streamline and connect your customers, sales, and engineering teams to the shop floor in an automated end-to-end process that begins with the customer, directly at the point of purchase, and ends with the finished piece of technical equipment.
But sales reps are frequently submitting technical configurations that are optimized poorly from both an engineering and profit-making standpoint. And tech teams are bogged down with requests for validation and rework that slow down sales cycles and restrict innovation. You need automation to reduce manual errors and clear the roadblocks.
Eliminate bottlenecks and supercharge manufacturing efficiency through automation
Once a product configuration has been finalized, sales reps can automatically generate all the documents required to initiate manufacturing. Technical drawings, CAD files, bill of materials, assembly instructions, and product renderings are all created without any input from engineering.
KBMax virtualizes your complex technical product rules to ensure that only valid configurations make their way through sales and engineering to the production team, eliminating the time-wasting back-and-forth that causes deal-threatening delays. Sales reps feel confident that products will be built to customers’ exact specifications, and customers always get what they want, and on time.
