Reimagining the CTO/ATO Opportunity to Fulfillment Cycle
Companies that offer configurable product lines often have intense Configure-To-Order processes that require valuable product experts, kludgy estimating systems and too much time to estimate, validate and communicate. CTO manufacturers frequently experience bottlenecks in their sales, estimating, and product launch processes that leave them vulnerable to market competition, expensive data replication activities, and customer satisfaction issues.
Modern Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) applications like Configure One knock down the barriers and streamline the challenging configuration process, harnessing and standardizing the specialized knowledge of product experts. Using this technology, complex configurations can be created and estimated by internal sales reps, directly by distributors, or even exposed to the customers for self-service configuration and estimation through a contemporary, guided website experience.
