Following the December 5th announcement about our Salesforce CPQ integration, read the Press Release here, our technical team sat down with the Salesforce CPQ SE team and created a show case as to what customers can expect from this partnership. We took one of our basic 3D models and added it as configurable products to Salesforce CPQ. It shows that the integration is fully functional and it is straight forward to set it up. The user interface is appropriately designed, fast and responsive, and easy to use on any device as it is Lightning and Salesforce1 ready.
KBMax differentiates from Salesforce CPQ in that KBMax is focused on 3D Visualization, Engineering Automation, and Complex Manufacturers.  Our solution supplements the Salesforce CPQ functionality allowing customers to take advantage of our comprehensive feature set within Salesforce CPQ at a competitive price.
The integration is based on our MAX modules, allowing customers to add functionality as needed, thus enhancing customer success.
MAX 3D User Interface: Users visually configure products in 3D and share interactive links and images with their customers for increased conversion rates. 2D product images are becoming extinct. Having 3D today is a tremendous competitive advantage to help products stand out and to sell more faster.
MAX Configure Engine: With focus on the C in CPQ, the KBMax Snap rules engine handles complex configuration logic for highly complex products. The visual drag & drop blocks make it easy to use and fast to implement for all skill levels. Snap is not limited like many other text-based rule languages. It is Turing-complete, meaning it can build any advanced algorithm. The future of enterprise programming is here!
MAX CAD Automation: Configured products can require engineering drawings before sales can quote or manufacturing can build. These manual processes can take weeks. These bottlenecks can be reduced with automated Solidworks, Autodesk Inventor, PTC Creo 3D models and drawings. We offer bottoms up, top-down, and nesting methodologies to generate fast CAD models and drawings.
