Creating and documenting solutions for demanding customers is a time-consuming and error-prone process – particularly if it is done manually. It requires intimate product and services knowledge, as well as a detailed understanding of customer needs. Not only does it consume substantial amounts of sales engineering time, it can also introduce significant bottlenecks into the sales process.
Create Customer-Specific Configurations in Minutes
AnalysisPlace CPQ software simplifies and automates product configuration. It reduces hours or even days of work by over 80% – making it easy to select products and packages based on required features and capabilities. As a result, salespeople, channel partners and dealers configure solutions more quickly and responsively – creating easily understood product configurations that reduce buying objections and accelerate deal closure. AnalysisPlace can also automatically insert product configurations into proposals, along with key financial justification information such as ROI and TCO analyses.
With AnalysisPlace CPQ tools, sellers generate more accurate product configurations since they are guided through the entire process. They do not require detailed product knowledge – for example, AnalysisPlace product configurator software can embed software license dependencies, so that prerequisite licenses are not omitted from the product configuration.
All standalone AnalysisPlace configure, price, quote tools can be version-controlled and time-limited, making sure that out-of-date tools are not used to configure products. In addition, AnalysisPlace tools can optionally be hosted on the web, rather than being deployed as standalone tools. Our web based delivery model can be updated as needed – ensuring that the latest version of the online configurator is immediately available to all sellers. This delivers complete control for product management and marketing groups, making certain that what is sold is fully aligned with the latest published product structures and pricing.
