G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform, released their Spring 2019 CPQ Grid Report highlighting the highest rated CPQ software. We were named a High Performer once again in the overall category as well as their new Visual Configuration category. We were also named the Leader for the first time by mid-market customers using Visual Configurator software.
When working with my clients, they readily understand how the deployment of a CPQ (Configure-Price-Quote) solution can help them reduce sales errors. After all, we are human, and every one of us have days where we misplace a decimal point or enter in a wrong SKU. Just in writing this little post I have made a few spelling errors (of which I hope I caught all of them before posting). CPQ's ability to help salespeople, order management and the customer with data automation for their entry tasks is easily understood. But one thing that isn't readily apparent is how CPQ can help them win more sales.
In the 2018 Innovation Insight for Visual Configuration report that was released yesterday, Gartner explores the types of visual product configurators that are currently available including 2D and 3D visualization, mixed reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality. KBMax was featured throughout the report as a solution that uniquely offers every type of visualization as well as CAD automation. They also provide recommendations for implementing these solutions successfully and the significant benefits that companies have seen by deploying a visual configurator.
Today, Tuff Shed launched our 3D product configurator in their retail locations nationwide. Their customers can now configure a made-to-order shed based on their requirements (the size, the type, the color, etc.) in real-time and receive a quote instantly.
In this blog post, we’d like to introduce you to the new UI updates available in KBMax version 3.3. In future blog posts, we’ll cover the other enhancements: the enhanced Snap programming language and back-end infrastructure, as well as the new features in our 3D scenes.
Our team had a brilliant time in London earlier this week presenting at the Salesforce CPQ Quarterly Business Review. It was an awesome experience to meet with the EMEA team and discuss their evolving market, plus learn about other partners like SpringCM and 4C. Salesforce knows that this is how strong partnerships are forged.
