CPQ for SAP
Rock-solid and simplified CPQ for your SAP ERP
Extend your ROI from your SAP deployment with visual CPQ that connects your customers, products, and teams
How long does it take to get your new products live in SAP?
Your new product is designed, tested, ready, and signed off by management. But now the real struggle begins…
Do you find that it’s needlessly difficult to load a new product and relevant information into SAP?
It might take two, three, six months, or even longer to build out every possible product configuration in SAP – some of which may never be chosen or purchased.
All of that time spent dealing with this complexity means missed revenue and opportunity, allowing your competition to make gains.
The worst part? Once you do begin selling, the quoting process is weighing down your engineering and production teams.
The best CPQ solution for SAP
KBMax is the most simple and powerful configure, price, and quote solution that integrates with SAP
It’s never been easier to get your products launched and connected to customers, quotes, orders, and manufacturing for a rich buying experience and simplified production.
Allow for friendlier buying and a more efficient business
KBMax CPQ puts a fast, responsive, and customer friendly face on SAP, elevating the user experience while also automating back-office processes and documentation to support manufacturing.
Tap into new buying channels
Deliver an ideal user experience for every sales channel: Customers, distributors, and internal sales people. KBMax makes it easy to provide distinct experiences for different audiences, while maintaining your pricing and configuration rules in one, central location.
Keep your user’s attention
A visual and guided selling approach ensures a slick experience that quickly and accurately sells larger deals. Ensure an easy and enjoyable buying experience, instead of asking for users to wait for sluggish SAP logic and API calls.
Increase your return-on-investment from your existing SAP deployment
With KBMax, you can get products to market faster, and orchestrate ordering, fulfillment, and tracking across all of your teams.
Enable seller independence
KBMax generates sales CAD drawings from a rules-based configurator allowing sales people to self-serve during the entire quoting process. This frees the engineering team from transactional pre-sales activities, while still ensuring the company can build what the person configured.
Give engineering a head start
Actual CAD files are generated from a KBMax product configuration for popular CAD platforms like SolidWorks, Autodesk, and PTC, giving engineering the ability to validate or further customize a configured product for a customer.
Help manufacturing stay accurate and to succeed
Introducing this controlled and accurate sales and design experience results in a happy production team downstream that receives accurate, auto-generated renderings, BOMs, assembly instructions, and more from KBMax.
Tighten up processes across the entire life cycle
Generate more deals that have wider visibility across the organization. Allow every team to reduce administration, data-entry, and unnecessary errors with CPQ integrated across your critical systems and processes. Feed critical order information to your ERP, CRM, PLM systems to aid in accounting, inventory control, and customer and order management.
Benefits of CPQ for SAP Variant
Focus SAP Variant Configurator on what it does best
KBMax robust rules engine manages sales and production-level rules and the exchange of information between your teams. This means you can reduce the sales rulesets living within Variant Configurator, letting it focus on downstream manufacturing rules.
Deploy and maintain rules flexibly
SAP VC rulesets are notoriously lengthy, hard to code, and highly dependent upon ‘If Statements’, unlike KBMax Snap which provides significantly more logic, engineering, configuration, and visualization.
Drive more sophisticated visual configuration
VC’s constraint-based engine resides outside the visualization layer, requiring the management of two systems and diverging sets of rules. Your customer experience takes a hit each time it has to ask SAP VC if something is allowed… but KBMax does it real-time.
Enable top-down or bottoms-up designs
Gain greater flexibility and efficiency when designing custom products on the fly. Admins are not forced to use one approach over another to build BOMs (Bill of Materials) which lessens constraint logic and maintenance.
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.
