A Sales Configurator is a calculation tool for salesmen. The software allows salesmen to flawlessly compose modularly built products, using predetermined rules and parameters. A Sales Configurator allows direct setting up of a tight quotation.
The difference between a Sales Configurator and a Product Configurator is mostly seen in their usage. The software is the same. But the focus within a Sales Configurator lies in the pricing and quotation. Whereas for a Product Configurator the focus lies in the built bill of materials, in other words, Engineering.
It is important that the sales configurator is going to do a portion of your sales. As such, Elfsquad does not require programming knowledge, but commercially aimed product knowledge. The product structures are poured into a simple game of question and answer, and are gone over during the sales pitch.

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.
