If you’re unsure of how to navigate a web-based product configurator, you're not alone. Even with the recent push towards a cloud-hosted and digitally-transformed era, most product configurator software solutions still aren't web-based.
A product configurator that’s hosted on the web is actually more user-friendly than traditional product configuration software. And if you’re already using a traditional product configurator, transitioning to a web-based CPQ software isn’t a complex task.
With the digital transformation manufacturers are facing, it’s essential to adapt to models of digitization to remain competitive. If you're manufacturing highly-configurable products, a web-based solution streamlines the entire process.
So, let's take a look at how you can use web-based product configuration software to streamline your operations.
Configure price quote (CPQ) software — especially when it’s based in the cloud – totally upends the traditional use of quoting tools. It used to be almost exclusively used on big projects with lots of moving parts, but thanks to the consumer spending habits of digital natives and the unification of the front and back of the office, CPQ has evolved and productivity has improved.
It has been shown that 75% of potential customers believe an organization’s website should have some sort of “self help” tool where one can see, build, and order on their own -- further proving how important it is to give the customers what they want -- and not only because it’s expected, but because it’s demanded. This is why cloud CPQ should be an integral part of a business and integrated into the buying process.
