Quickly Guide Customers to the Right Product
For some manufacturers, the biggest challenge may not be product configuration. The biggest challenge may actually be how to help their customers find the right product. With a conventional catalog-based system, your customers face a time-consuming and frustrating search for the product they need which often forces them to use cumbersome item numbers, descriptions or product codes.
Configurator quickly guides your customers to the product they need using a query/response mechanism and an intuitive graphical interface. Your customers simply answer a series of questions or select images of the product they are looking for and the application rapidly guides them to the right product. Configurator helps you improve your customer service levels, while simultaneously increasing quote and order accuracy.
Increase Responsiveness and Slash Cycle Times
Configurator allows you to increase your responsiveness by compressing Quote-to-Delivery cycle times for customized products. By guiding customers through the configuration process, the application ensures that accurate product specifications and pricing information are captured the first time around and that your customers have all the information they need to make a purchasing decision quickly.
To completely automate the sales process, Configurator is seamlessly integrated with other glovia G2 application including, Sales Quotes, Sales Orders, and Customer Portal. The application automatically generates and transfers configured product structure, pricing, and routing information to other glovia G2 applications for execution.
