Today, Elfsquad announced the availability of Elfsquad CPQ on AppSource, an online cloud marketplace providing tailored line-of-business solutions.
Elfsquad has been developing configuration software (CPQ software) for SMEs in the manufacturing industry since 2016. Initially for Dutch production companies, the software has always been developed with internationalization in mind. Listing Elfsquad on Microsoft AppSource is a clear reflection of the urge to not only serve the Dutch market, but also to look beyond national borders. Elfsquad CPQ is immediately available to any international production company with this listing. And, Elfsquad CPQ can be directly linked with almost all Microsoft business software.
Elfsquad CPQ enables manufacturers of complex solutions, such as agricultural and packaging machines, conveyors and car bodies, to sell their technical products without errors. Sellers, dealers and even end customers can assemble the product according to their needs, after which an error-free price calculation and quotation is generated. The solution can be integrated with other business software, such as ERP, CRM and CAD systems, resulting in a fully digital and scalable pre-production process. Elfsquad CPQ empowers manufacturing companies to meet the growing demand for customization, shorter delivery and lead times, and ever-increasing technical product knowledge.
Wessel de Haan, Commercial Director at Elfsquad said, “We experience a huge shift from legacy standalone applications towards fully integrated web-based business solutions. Flawless integrations with best-in-class applications drives not only sales, but overall business performance in a way that’s impossible when using legacy software.“
Toby Bowers, General Manager, Business Applications Group, Microsoft Corp., said, “We’re happy to welcome Elfsquad CPQ to Microsoft AppSource, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Microsoft AppSource offers partner solutions such as Elfsquad CPQ from Elfsquad to help customers meet their needs faster.”
Elfsquad CPQ is compatible with Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics 365 for Sales in order to connect the primary process to the production environment, ERP and CRM in this case. Elfsquad has also developed an Excel Plugin that provides Elfsquad users with lightning-fast imports and exports of large amounts of data. For example, it is possible to change all prices with one bulk update. Finally, Elfsquad has an extensive Microsoft Power Automate connector for Microsoft’s low-code platform. This allows users to link with Power BI and apply extensive analysis on the data from their CPQ software.
Elfsquad plays a critical role in preserving the right to exist for SMEs. The software has been developed from practice and experience in the manufacturing industry. Elfsquad’s mission is to enable manufacturing companies to gain and maintain a competitive advantage by digitizing their pre-production processes.
