Autodesk Configure One’s configure price quote software is an enterprise application that enables companies to efficiently sell and process orders for configurable, multi-option, and customizable products and services. CPQ solutions enable companies to satisfy customer demands for unique products while still maintaining the scalability and control of a well-defined product line. The best CPQ software calculates prices and helps maintain margins while ensuring that the configured product will work and satisfy the customer’s requirements.
Autodesk Configure One CPQ application serves the following functions:
Our configurator is a powerful and fast application that uses rules for assemble-to-order, configure-to-order, and engineer-to-order product lines, enabling the efficient capture of custom configurations. The easy-to-use administrative screens allow marketers, engineers and product managers to define product configuration rules quickly — even without programming knowledge — making this CPQ system fast and simple to implement.
Autodesk Configure One’s extensive pricing software and costing functionality helps you accurately model the price and cost of your products. You know your configured product orders will meet the required margins, because the powerful CPQ process calculates the cost of each selected feature and option at the same time it calculates the total product price. The built-in price book makes it easy to update prices or implement new pricing strategies. Using multiple price books simplifies the challenge of variable pricing based on different end customers or levels of dealers.
Our powerful quote generator automatically creates professional-looking documents that enhance your company’s image. In addition to product and pricing information, the quote can automatically insert pre-defined text into specific areas of a document based on the features and options selected. It can also generate configuration-specific drawings and images inside quote documents so your customers can see and understand exactly what the quote covers.
At Autodesk Configure One, many of our customers only use the standard CPQ functionality. Yet some companies — especially manufacturers of complex products — need more. Autodesk Configure One offers CPQ+™, a series of additional components that provide advanced CPQ functionality to cover the entire quote-to-production process. Our quote management software covers the entire process from rules creation through quoting, release to production and order management. We provide pre-built integration to some of the most widely used ERP and PLM solutions in the market, including JD Edwards, NetSuite, SAP, IFS, PTC Creo, SolidWorks and Inventor.
Unlike other CPQ software vendors, we don’t force you to deal with additional CPQ products and application areas that you don’t need and won’t use. You can purchase the exact components you need for your CPQ process, making the CPQ implementation faster and less costly.
