Elfsquad is for the manufacturing industry. We connect the sales- and production processes, and enable sellers and buyers to configure complex products without errors.
We understand exactly what your problem is: As a manufacturing company you have to deal with increased customer demand for tailor-made solutions. The variation in your product offering is increasing day by day. We help you to manage this variation. So that you can focus on what you are born to do: Building the machines that your customers like to buy.
Your problem is caused by huge product variation. Your customers have very specific wishes. In addition, you are bound by a variety of 3rd party vehicles and rapidly changing regulations. And that whilst very short lead times are demanded. Elfsquad makes your product variation manageable and understandable. And shortening lead times is our specialty.
You are a machine builder on steroids: you do not only have to deal with the complexities of one machine, you have to ensure that all machines within one project / line are compatible with each other. Elfsquad ensures that all conveyor belts are of the same width, that all machines operate on the same voltage, that the capacities are matched, and so on. Now that is an efficiency boost!
Your product takes the challenge of creating an offer to a whole new level. Before you are able to start with configuring actual products, a process of calculations must first take place. This is where Elfsquad comes in: enter your process parameters, and Elfsquad presents the correct composition. Add more options and accessories and you have a quote. We radically shorten the lead time of your entire pre-production process.
Elfsquad is the source of truth: If your product exhibits similar complexities, Elfsquad could be your solution. Examples of products that we configure are custom-made wheelchairs, industrial paintwork, garage doors, prefab concrete elements, and much more.
Our software works. Not only for your product, also within your company. Our CPQ software is compatible with all software applications: From MS Business Central to Hubspot and from Inventor to Google Analytics. We have standard integrations for the most commonly used IT applications.View all integrations
At least, that’s not how we feel. Almost without exception, we all have a background in the manufacturing industry. We saw manufacturing companies struggling with the increase in product variety that the market demanded from them. We could not find a product in the market that was able to help us. In our search we found many other companies with a similar challenge. Hence we decided to take matters in our own hands to develop a solution. With the smartest brains in the field of AI. And with common sense.
‘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.
We can state that our quotation runtime has been reduced by 50% thus far. With these final steps, we have digitized the entire pre-production process, leading to very positive results concerning our competitive position.
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.
By designing the front-end tightly and slickly with Elfsquad CPQ, it is possible for us to maintain competitive pricing. A big reason to always choose for Elfsquad is that this entire portion lies completely in our own hands. I do not have to constantly call up a helpdesk or consultant. After 1 implementation day I could immediately take off.
Where in the past we would get stuck in lengthy sales trajectories, we now go through them in mere minutes after implementing Elfsquad. Customers used to order complex calculations or complicated pricelists. This requires both waiting- and labor time. Which are reduced enormously through a product configurator that integrates directly with your infrastructure.
Elfsquad turned out to be the solution, because it contains a knowledge set which practically holds the user’s hand when answering the question of what exactly is needed to fulfill customers’ wishes, and with that explains all of its different options in an infinite amount of languages.
The complexity of our products can no longer be described on paper; what is printed today, will be obsolete tomorrow. Additionally, on paper you will never gain all the knowledge needed to configure our products correctly; made without error and optimally fitting the customer’s needs.
When we zoom out of all of its applications, Elfsquad’s simplicity is distinctive. And solid software is the basis, of course, but the click with contacts is of equal importance.
When, as a production company, you sell wares to increase internal productivity, you need to make sure you optimize your own internal productivity. Which is where Elfsquad came in handy.
After a thorough market research Elfsquad simply turned out to be the best package. Where we eventually were able to rapidly advance our vision for digital order-intake.
Elfsquad removes all uncertainty, dealers can immediately see pricing when writing up the quotations, and as a result it can be composed together with the customer. In turn, revisions become a thing of the past.
The configurator reinforces our competitive position, and our customers are experiencing the same problems during the pre-production process. We see a future for our customers in the configurator. Because profits for manufacturing businesses are often reduced by the costs of spillage. By eliminating every possible error in the pre-production process, you are able to regain a big portion of this profit.
The output makes sense: an order is simply correct. Nowadays, we no longer need to worry about faulty compositions of the wheelchairs.
Elfsquad was easy to design and showed a user-friendly impression. Where other packages are dependent on hours of consultancy. Elfsquad even delivered a presentation with a pre-loaded model.
