In my previous posts, I shared some of the market opportunities and I think we all agree that CPQ solutions for the sales, operations and engineering processes continue to increase in importance and significantly contribute to a firm’s successful business transformation. The need for product visualization is not new and customers are using our 2D and 3D technologies for this purpose. We invested in newer technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) and we are working with some of our customers to determine how they can best use them.
In the research report from Novus CPQ Consulting, KBMax is listed as one of the few CPQ vendors, which have a robust CPQ Solution combined with 3D Visualization and CAD Automation. You can download the report here.
The investment pays off through an improved buying experience ...
While customers are becoming very confident in understanding the benefits of 3D visualization, measuring the ROI is challenging for the majority. Although, customers feel confident that the investment pays off through an improved buying experience by selling the right products, at the right price, to the right customer, at the right time, and via the buyers’ preferred channel. Additional benefits are in increased operational efficiencies. It shortens the time-to-market for new offerings, decreases seller ramp-up time, automates complex sales processes, and reduces costly pricing errors.
We are not only integrating with a wide array of enterprise systems, such as ERP systems from Oracle, SAP or Infor, and CRM systems from Salesforce, Oracle or MS Dynamics, but also providing 3D Visualization and CAD Automation modules for Salesforce CPQ and Oracle CPQ Cloud for instance. Our technology allows customers to add visualization to their existing CPQ solutions, without the need of transitioning to an entirely different solution.
Supporting visualization on any device is becoming an inevitable requirement. Whether customers are configuring complex products on their PCs, laptops or mobile devices our 3D visualization is responsive and runs on any browser or device without any additional plug-ins required.
