Enhance Your Industrial Equipment Ordering Operation
Industrial equipment, machinery manufacturers and their authorized dealers and distributors have understood this for many years: having the right combination of models, features and accessories available within the necessary time frame when a qualified buyer is identified is the secret to success. And this takes close communication and coordination with the dealer network acting as the “voice of the customer.”Start Selling More

Make It Easy for Distributors.
Infor CPQ allows distributors to quote their own product add-ons and services, so they can present a single integrated quote to the customer. With more flexible and easy-to-use capabilities, distributors will want to work with your company—you help them reach more customers and deliver a better combination of products and services.
Help Customers Visualize Their Order with 2D Images
Infor CPQ gives your sales team visualization tools to use in the quoting process so customers can see realistic images of the available options and their final order. Use 2D example images to give customers an accurate representation of look and size.
Better Manage Product Innovation.
Infor CPQ can help you quickly and efficiently develop new products for existing applications and innovative new applications. You can roll out new products, options, and pricing electronically and according to your exact plan. You can also continuously roll out minor new product and price changes at any time to incorporate new innovations or adapt to new sales strategies.
Manage Master Schedule Forecasts
Manufacturers want and need their Channel Partners to participate in the development of their master schedule forecast particularly on the buyouts and/or long-lead items.
Infor Configure Price Quote (CPQ) provides a platform to manage this process by employing a rules-based configurator that is sensitive to the lead-times of each feature/option and assists the Dealer to contribute to a master schedule forecasts by model by feature. Moreover, Infor CPQ provides the tools to easily convert a forecast line item into a formal quotation, a sales order, and most importantly a production job with associated BOMs, routings, tool path directives, and work instructions.
Reduce Costs with CPQ
Deliver the perfect order.
Infor CPQ allows you to ensure that your customers have made all the choices they need and that the order you submit to your manufacturing team reflects the exact configuration, is on time, and delivers the expected costs. Use Infor CPQ to help produce the perfect order and you’ll avoid the time, effort, cost, and customer frustration caused by delivering the wrong product at the improper price.
Automate manufacturing instructions.
Infor CPQ dynamically creates bills of materials (BOM) and manufacturing instructions on the fly, and can easily integrate with your ERP system to store these instructions with production orders. You can also have the system generate 2D drawings and 3D models of products to clearly show your production team what to build so you increase yield and reduce scrap. These dynamic instructions and drawings can eliminate a substantial number of errors that can creep into even the most well-run production process.
Reduce labor requirements.
With Infor CPQ, you can dramatically reduce the labor required to fulfill an order. You’ll be able to create a rules-based BOM process to avoid the labor-intensive creation of thousands of configured part numbers. Because the manufacturing instructions are recorded only once, you can introduce product innovations more quickly. In addition, pricing and product descriptions are part of the Infor CPQ sales interface, so you can eliminate the production of price books. And you won’t need to rekey orders into your ERP system since they were already configured in the quote system.
