Configure Price Quote (CPQ)

Automated processes for faster presales phase.

Configure Price Quote (CPQ)

Automating quotation processes across complex and individual products and solutions – sounds complicated, but it's not. With Configure Price Quote (CPQ) you increase your efficiency in the presales phase.

Automated Processes for Faster Presales Phase

With Configure Price Quote (CPQ), literally translated as “configure, price, quote“, you automate your process chain in sales. The focus is on an accelerated presales phase, as you avoid errors in configuration and price calculation at an early stage with intelligent automated processes. CIDEON advises companies on efficient configure-price-quote processes. Realize solutions for end-to-end data integrity and information platforms along the entire value chain with us.

Use Cases

CPQ processes are the answer to react to the increasing demands of your customers at an early stage. With powerful tools, CIDEON supports you in leading these projects reliably and efficiently to success today.

Error-Free Configurations and Price Calculations

The demand for more variant diversity is continuously increasing. Respond to this. Gain an advantage in terms of costs and delivery times by offering complex and individually designed products or services in a standardized way. With CPQ processes, you avoid configuration and pricing errors right from the start.

More Efficient Process and Data Management

The more diverse the variance, the faster your data inventory grows. Searching and finding important project and product data becomes increasingly difficult. With efficient data and process management, you can counteract this.

Faster Quotation Processes

Inquiry straight out – quotation straight there. Expectations are rising, even among customers for capital goods. Therefore: Improve your quotation processes, not only with a view to avoiding errors, but especially with a view to greater efficiency.

Cross-Divisional Process Automation

Cross-departmental coordination between mechanical and electrical engineering is becoming increasingly important. Implement feedback or adaptation requests from the customer in the quotation and the associated items with digitized CPQ processes - cross-departmentally and completely automatically.
