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.

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.
