SALES ENGINEERING AUTOMATION FOR COMPLEX PRODUCT CONFIGURATION

GOING BEYOND CPQ WITH EPQ*

Because Knowledge Bridge captures and automates your configuration and engineering rules, it enables a wider range of people - salespeople, partners, customers - to create accurate, valid quotes without overloading your application engineers. kBridge also enables fast customer response and the creation of compelling quotes that include custom documents, 2D drawings, 3D models, renderings, and more.

A TYPICAL SALES ENGINEERING CYCLE AND COMMON CHALLENGES

Have we captured the customer's real requirements? Do we have all of the critical pieces of information?

Can we afford to do the right level of engineering given the numbers of quotes we have to put together?

Can we provide an accurate configuration that includes drawings and graphics of the actual proposed solution?

Have we missed anything critical in the proposal that might end up reducing our margin when the order is received?

How quickly can a proposal be generated? When can a customer expect to receive a response?

Do we have a handle on the real costs?

Is there a way to capture customer requirements once, and avoid unnecessary duplication of information?

How can we create a more compelling proposal?

Is the BOM accurate? Will order engineering be able to use it if the order comes in?
