- How to build a configurator
- Leveraging existing 3D models. If 3D models of products already exist, or a design team is in place to create them, a 3D product configurator is a natural fit.
- Getting a product configurator set up is very simple within KBMax due to our clean, integrated software and our fully integrated admin panel.
- The three dimensional model allows the user to view their product from all angles, ensuring the product meets requirements, shape and size.
- A 3D product configurator brings products to life and impresses customers with beautiful and accurate renderings and eliminates any apprehension they may have.
- And finally, its sets you apart from the competition. While product configurators are becoming mainstream, 3D visualization is not as common and very view CPQ vendors have the out-of-the-box technology offering a great competitive advantage.
There is a big increase in the number of CPQ & Product Configurator vendors lately. A current google search will turn up dozens of results, when there might have been a dozen not long ago.
The natural tendency is to commoditize this growing field to make “apples to apples” comparisons. Issues arise because of major differences in vendor functionality, architecture, pricing, and services. Buyers get fatigue compiling vendor checklists and are faced with an “apples to oranges” decision.
Aberdeen recently published a great free report outlining how High Tech companies and CPQ. High Tech can present unique challenges for CPQ due to increasing product complexity and interdepartmental silos that contain separate tribal knowledge. Mass customization is growing and consequently product complexity is skyrocketing. Both manual methods and many CPQ & configurator software can't keep up. Many companies are painted into a corner with outdated processes that limit product offerings, and quote cycle time & bandwidth. Expect this trend to continue as seen below:
