The Top 3 Takeaways From NRF 2018

Posted by Lauren Habig on 1/18/18 9:05 AM
1.  The customer should always be #1.

The main sentiment heard in our conversations with other show attendees and in presentations from the leaders in the space is that the only reason they are still around is because of their customer. There is a need to focus on delivering them the value and experiences that they desire. This notion of B2B2C is becoming mainstream because no matter who you’re selling to, there’s always a customer at the end of the process.

Well, another Dreamforce has come and gone, and this year reached a new level of magnitude with 170,000 attendees, $1 million raised for equal access to education and jobs, and 2,700 sessions. With so much going on and the vast amount of knowledge coming from the conference, we wanted to capture our team’s 4 main takeaways that we are taking back to our office.
 
 
Kevin Jackson, VP of Sales
The Fourth Industrial Revolution has arrived.
 
A main theme in Marc Benioff’s keynote was the fourth industrial revolution, a new era of growth in the tech industry that is marked by intelligence and connection.
 
According to Benioff, “There’s all these amazing new technologies, things like autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence and nanotechnology and mobile computing and all these things are really hitting at once. And companies are really transforming themselves and bringing all these new technologies in really to connect with their customers in new ways.”
 
In order to compete in this new environment, your company needs to utilize these new innovative tools specifically in the 3D and AR space. It was so cool and exciting to see people stop by our booth to see our customer driven visual configurations since they did not know something like it existed.

Posted by Thomas Plocher on 10/27/17 3:12 PM
 
Don't miss the next KBMax Weekly, which is scheduled for Tuesday, October 31st at 12:00pm Central. Enjoy a deep dive into KBMax fully integrated architecture, features and functionality. Most CPQ vendors won’t show their rule language and admin platform until you have sat through several demos. Even then they only give you a small peek into the engine that drives your configurators.  At KBMax we take a different approach. From the start, we display our admin tool and rule language. We have nothing to hide. We are proud of it, our customers love it, and we think you will too.
 
 
 
 
Simply register following the link and tell us the area or features you are particularly interested in. Our very own Senior Solution Engineers and Senior Architects will be hosting these webinars, which ensures you will get the best value from these sessions. Here are some of the topics we will be covering:
 
  • An intro of KBMax, core features and functionality
  • The value of visual CPQ
  • Our clean visual CPQ architecture and integrations
  • KBMax - What is under the hood
  • The Snap rules & workflow engine
  • Complex configuration capabilities
  • 3D visualization engine
  • Principles of CAD automation
  • How to build a configurator
