Time-consuming quotation processes, customization, technical product knowlegde and much more. All sorts of bottlenecks run into by sellers of complex machines, installations, and bodyworks. The solution? A sales configurator. It helps a salesman do what he wants to do: selling.
Long-term contact with both customers and dealers about quotation documents makes for frustration within the sales process. Which is why Elfsquad automates the setup and sending of quotation documents. Because sales, too, can be automated.
Where in the past we would be stuck in long sales processes, they have turned into a matter of minutes after implementing Elfsquad. Customers used to request complex calculations or complicated pricing lists. Causing both extra labor time and waiting time. This is reduced enormously when using a sales configurator

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.

After a successful Proof of Concept we chose Elfsquad, as we find it to be an advanced and elegant platform. A platform that provides an intuitive user experience while users gain control over the data and how this is displayed in the form of a Q&A game.
A custom-build configurator is obsolete the day you have it.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.
‘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.’
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
