However important personal relationships, contract selection and marketing may be, an essential factor in ensuring a successful sales transaction is a complete, correctly specified and feasible product. Many products can be specified by specialists only and even then the specified solution may not be what the customer needs.
Translating needs into a complete product specification
A comprehensible questionnaire guides the user (sales office, sales representative, dealer, end user) through the process of translating needs into a complete product specification.
Powerful and easy to maintain configurator
In many respects, Sofon differs from the usual product configurators. Not only is Sofon an extraordinarily powerful configurator, it is also particularly easy for product specialists to maintain, without the need for in-depth IT knowledge. This means that it is possible for product rules, prices, texts and illustrations to be maintained directly by product specialists, without having to transfer knowledge back and forth from the product specialist to the IT department.
Quotation version management
Models or versions of all products follow on from one another in quick succession. With this in mind, Sofon offers version management, ensuring that information relating to successive models is stored. If a quotation has been produced on the basis of an old model and your customer asks for a new one, the old quotation can be checked against the new rules.
