Elfsquad provides CPQ software for manufacturing companies that develop, produce and sell complex products. All within your own management. Because that’s what manufacturing business need.
Elfsquad CPQ: The fast lane to simplifying complex pre-production processes.
Elfsquad CPQ is suitable for many organizations that sell complex products. But of course, as all software companies, we do have a sweet spot.
Manufacturing companies having products that are highly customizable, modulair or parametric and where complexity is acknowledged, get the most out of Elfsquad CPQ software.
To overcome these challenges, manufacturing businesses should not only redesign their production process, but also their pre-production process.
By being a generic, cloud- and AI-based CPQ platform that can handle any type of complexity within a user-friendly interface, Elfsquad CPQ is the go-to software for manufacturing businesses:
Your business does not sell a simple bicycle, but complex machines, installations, or transport tyres, etc. There is much to choose in your product package. Very time-consuming and prone to error for salespeople, dealers, and the customer themself. With Elfsquad CPQ Software:
What is more convincing: a table with a summary of products, or a complete document that explains, in your customer’s language, how he is better off with your product? We are going for the latter.
In comparison, we took one of our old projects. This entire project was composed within 15 clicks with Elfsquad CPQ. As such, we at WSP Systems have saved 75% in time regarding price calculation and quotation time.
The life of your average engineer consists of order engineering. A waste of time when you realize Elfsquad CPQ is able to automatically generate CAD-files. This was, we can get engineers back to R&D!
As soon as a salesperson rolls out a quotation or scores an order, the product configurator can direct all dimensions of your parametric models. This results in a very fast generation of a 100% flawless 3D CAD model.
Imagine your product consists of modules for 80%, but the last 20% should always be engineered customer-specifically. Then the Elfsquad Product Configurator can still serve you very well: the modular part of the configuration can be prepared in advance, for post-processing by the engineer.
Without flawless input, you cannot guarantee flawless output. Because of CPQ software Excel has become a thing of the past. You deliver errorless sales orders without double data entry.
Quotations are synced to ERP, for flawless (production) orders. And to CAD, for flawless production drawings. Looking to eliminate errors from your factory? Our CPQ software guarantees this.
What will be your material requirement for the coming year? How much occupation will your factory need? If only you had a magic glass sphere…
Or an Elfsquad license! Elfsquad CPQ software creates a BOM for every quotation. With Elfsquad, you know exactly what kind of quotations have been rolled out by salespeople, dealers, and even customers.
With smart integrations in, for instance, CRM applications, bills of materials are linked to sales opportunities. Allowing automatic forecasting for your entire pipeline.
Where in the past we were stuck in long sales trajectories, we now have reduced these trajectories to a matter of minutes after implementing Elfsquad. Customers used to request complex calculations or complicated price lists. This costs work- and waiting time. And is enormously reduced by Elfsquad CPQ.
It might seem unrealistic to you, but we can turn your factory into a webshop. Which is good: customers tend to do orientation online these days.
We know your product is not simple to grasp for your customer, but this is exactly what we are good at. Elfsquad CPQ takes your website visitor by the hand, so that said visitor does not require any product knowledge.
Direct payment in the software is certainly an option, but usually we see the actual transaction handled by a salesperson or regional dealer.
Hundreds, maybe thousands of potential leads on your website. How do you turn these into customers?
With Elfsquad CPQ your customers are able to meet your product by using an online showroom on your website. As soon as the visitor requests a quotation you not only have their email address; you know exactly where their interests lie, as they have just configured this themselves.
Follow-up is then completely automatable, for instance by mailing personalized offers.
We can state that our quotation runtime has been reduced by 50%. With these final steps we have digitized the complete pre-production process, with very positive results for our competitive position.
We know that you as an international manufacturing business need to be able to configure and quote anywhere in the world. Which is why our CPQ is cloud- and web-based. And even available on smartphone and tablet, for out-of-office work.
But that is not all: Elfsquad CPQ is very easily integrated into your other systems, or your website.
Our CPQ is completely Software-as-a-Service. This ensures that you will always be using the most up-to-date version of Elfsquad functionalities. On top of that you pay for what you use with Elfsquad, and we supply complete hosting and maintenance.
Archer Technology is the engine of our CPQ software. An engine in the background that ensures that only the restrictions, calculations, and lines that are relevant at that moment are utilized. Within milliseconds. That way, Archer makes your models smarter. The result? A significant reduction of your implementation trajectory, and your models are optimally manageable.
Visualize your product range in 3D. A visual CPQ solution increases conversions and prevents confusion. The tool to directly have customers meet your product’s distinguishing details.
What will be more convincing to your customer? Direct insight in your complex product’s characteristics, in which they can then compose the product themselves in 3D? Or an Excel list with boring specifications of a complex product?
At Elfsquad we do not only make your business future-proof. We also ensure that our software will remain the frontrunner in the field of CPQ.
And when we look at the future, we are looking at best-of-breeds. You need to be able to build and modify your own integrations and workflows.Without an army of consultants or developers.
That’s the future. That’s Elfsquad.
Elfsquad CPQ does not restrict you to building complex product configurations. Which is why we developed system configurations. You connect multiple machines or complex products (also in 3D) and determine their availability and restrictions.
That is the CPQ solution the industry is requesting: the evolution of a product configurator.
Elfsquad has to sell for you. But your best salesperson probably isn’t your best programmer. Which is why Elfsquad is world’s first CPQ software where no programming work is required: the design is taken care of by a salesperson or engineer with knowledge of the product, process, and commerce.
Elfsquad CPQ is based on the API-first principle. Which means you have endless integration possibilities. And that’s a good thing, because a growing manufacturing company experiences a growing IT landschape. Integrate with 3000+ applications, from SalesForce to Dynamics for Sales and from Autodesk Inventor to Business Central.View all integrations
Elfsquad removes all worries from your pre-production process. With Elfsquad as backbone, we realize the digital factory that smart industries have been trying to find for so long. We do this through a product configurator, with integrated solutions for marketing, sales, and operations.
A big challenge we would have without a configurator is always needing an engineer to help with quotes. Elfsquad enabled us to streamline the quote-to-cash process. The 30-day trial really helped us to get to know the software.
A custom-build configurator is obsolete the day you have it. With Elfsquad CPQ we always use the latest software, so we are more future-proof with a CPQ SaaS solution.
A LeapBox always has to fit, so that gives infinite possibilities, and if we had to do that by hand, I think we would get many incorrect BOMs.
‘During the first sales conversations we had the best feeling with Elfsquad. We did not have the idea that any other party, competitors both national and international, knew exactly what we needed.’
A configurator forces you to finetune your standardization. Salespeople present a visual and correct pitch to the customer. And the time we used to lose to work preparation must have been cut in half so far.
I'm not an IT person. It is actually doable for everyone to build a configuration model and make adjustments. That just works very well. We aimed for a quoting time of 3 hours. Now customers do that themselves. Error-free and online.
