Frequently asked questions about integration

Do you have good documentation available?

Of course, otherwise we would not have listed this question! We invest a lot of time in composing crystal clear API documentation. We do this with a reason: We want to make it easy for you to quickly link with your IT-infrastructure. We remove as many barriers as we can. As they cost time and money.

Should you still run into issues, then we are always here to help. Feel free to contact us whenever you feel it is necessary. As stupid questions do not exist.

How do I ensure a good flow between CAD and the configurator?

By using 3D renders in the configurator, you create a 3D configurator allowing end customers to directly ‘meet’ your product.

An integration between CAD and Elfsquad saves a lot of time for Engineering. You directly fill parametric models. You generate machine controls as soon as an order is sold. And you are able to send CAD files along with quotations

Customization these days is considered as the components of the product you have never produced before, where you have to return to the drawing table. As such, you should know what part of your product is modularly built and which part still truly is engineer-to-order.

But what does a common workflow between CAD and the configurator look like?

  1. When a quotation in Elfsquad reaches the status ‘Sold’, a parametric model is directly filled in in the server.
  2. When a small part still needs to be engineered, the engineer directly sees this in the quotation’s description. This allows him to deliver the final bit of customization.
  3. A bill of materials is generated in CAD or the configurator. This BOM is then used to ‘feed’ the ERP.

How do I ensure a good flow between CRM and the configurator?

A good workflow during the sales process is essential. As a result, an integration with CRM is a frequently used application, drastically shortening quotation runtimes. Additionally, the workflow is largely automated, which means errors in data and quotations become a thing of the past.

What does a regular workflow between CRM and the configurator look like?

  1. When a new sales opportunity reaches the status ‘Create quotation’ in CRM, a new quotation is directly created in Elfsquad.
  2. This quotation is filled with data from CRM, fully automated.
  3. When the quotation is filled with configurations, it is released in Elfsquad. The sales opportunity in CRM reaches the phase ‘Quotation released’.
  4. When the quotation is eventually accepted, the status in CRM shifts to ‘Sold’.

How do I ensure a good flow between ERP and the configurator?

An ERP system often is the heart of your business. All prices, products, and logistic information are established in it. A good reason for Elfsquad to be able to link with this at all times.

By establishing a link or connection between ERP and the configurator, you ensure that Elfsquad always displays correct pricing. That eventually realizes flawless quotation. Synchronization ensures that prices are always up-to-date. For this reason, we provide seamless integration between the configurator and the most common ERP systems in the manufacturing industry. Would you like to change certain prices for specific products? Then this does not influence pending quotations.

How does connection with a website work?

We turn your factory into a webshop. Meaning it should be simple for you to integrate Elfsquad into your website. And we offer you a lot of freedom in doing so: Buy our JavaScript Library and your website builder should be able to do their thing. Additionally, we could do this for you. In that case our experts handle the design and integrate Elfsquad into the front end of your website. In that case the only thing you need to do is give us the green light.

Is it possible to personally link with the numerous systems I am currently using?

To get the most out of Elfsquad, it is important that you are able to link to the systems you are currently using. For this reason, we encourage you to realize your own links. We will provide you with the tools to do so, in the form of clear documentation and export possibilities through OData. Should you still run into struggles doing so, do not hesitate to contact us.

They are already using our integrations

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.’
