CPQ - Configure Price Quote using Mendix

CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) is a tool used by Sales Representatives to quickly and accurately generate quotes for specific orders, along with a complete pricing proposal real-time within minutes. This solution is available in various versions (Browser, Mobile, and Tablet) and can be accessed from anywhere.

The sales representative will input customized specifications of the product, quantities, and the optional features as input and generate an optimized proposal based on the selected parameters. This solution is developed in the context of an Industrial Refrigeration System but can be easily extended to any other products. This is built using the low code platform – Mendix that enables collaborative development of mobile, tablet, and web-based applications.

Optimization of the Generated Proposal

CPQ Proposal view includes the analysis stage of the defined requirements. The combination rules for the created product are checked for validation and an overview is generated. It also provides information like the number of compressors required with different capacities and other specifications to meet the customer’s demand.

The sales executive can also provide the option of optimizing the current proposal based on the following parameters:

  • Cost – This option lets you modify certain requirements to some extent from the customized specifications and regenerate the proposal with minimized cost using the available discounts and other features allowing the sales representative to quote prices quickly and accurately.
  • Lead Time – It lets the executive provide the customer with the changes in the specification that must be incorporated if the customer needs a least delivery period.
  • Power (Horsepower) – It enables the sales representative to get an updated proposal with auto generated estimates that include optimization based on the maximized Horsepower.
