This is something you’ll have experienced! You work on a quotation with several colleagues from different departments for days on end, only to call the interested party and learn that the order had already been placed days earlier. Your quotation was simply too late.
The solution used as a link between customers, sales and production is called CPQ (Configure Price Quote). Particularly in mechanical and plant engineering, this solution makes it possible to digitally map the business processes, substantially shorten the quotation process, and create ‘clean orders’ by means of error-free configurations.
