Key Capabilities of the Solution
With Infor’s innovative CPQ technology, companies can simplify product rules, increase sales productivity and profitability, and improve customer satisfaction in the process.
Here are a few key capabilities of the Infor CPQ solution…
Seamless Customer Integration
Infor’s integrated Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution and advanced API gateway simplifies integrations between ERP solutions, systems, and third-party applications.
Infor CPQ is built within the Infor OS suite, making it easy to integrate with CloudSuite applications and manage back-end processes more efficiently.
And, CPQ also provides key integration capabilities that help connect it to Infor’s customer relationship management (CRM) solution, providing a comprehensive way to manage relations with current or potential buys.
The CPQ module also offers pre-built integration with computer-aided design (CAD) systems to create detailed shop drawings and virtual models for important product information and provide immediate confirmation for configured product accuracy.
Data Transformation and Storage
Infor CPQ offers comprehensive data acquisition technologies and a centralized data repository to transform, exchange, and store important enterprise data, including quotes, proposals, and other sales documents.
Infor’s data warehouse not only streamlines access to your most valuable product and consumer data, ensures data governance and fidelity, provides improved security and access permissions to protect your data, and stores such data in a single solution.
Infor’s custom developer tools seamlessly integrate with Infor CPQ to provide a better experience for customers without the need for complex programming or code configuration.
From managing consumer-grade web interfaces to replacing customizations with standard business processes, integrating high-productivity forms, and more, Infor CPQ rules streamline operations within each application and simplify the user experience through a single solution.
Improved Enterprise Experience
The Infor Configure Price Quote solution provides a centralized point of access within a user’s Infor applications through a singles sign-on approach.
And, Infor CPQ users can streamline communication across all areas of their organization, improve organizational visibility through real-time analytics and insights, and leverage an easy to use solution for improved employee engagement and satisfaction.
Main Advantages for Your Organization
Infor CPQ helps companies automate manual quote creation processes to increase and ensure product visibility, reduce errors and overhead costs, and increase overall profit.
The solution also helps improve the buying experience for consumers by offering greater visibility through visualizations of key product features and dimensions.
This not only helps improve product transparency before purchase, but it also builds trust between consumers and producers, positively influences purchase decisions, and reduces online return rates.
