Siemens Reduces Quote Time from 8 Weeks to Minutes Using CPQ

For Siemens Energy quoting was a time consuming process The air intake assembly alone, for example, has 120 variants. Factor in all the configurations and combinations that come along with that; and things get complicated very quickly. This complexity posed a challenge for Siemens. Because the turbines are highly customized – and the combination of variables almost endless – producing customer quotes was a lengthy and complicated process. A full customer proposal was often 500 pages long, took eight weeks to produce, and required specialist engineering help on almost every sales case.

Yaskawa challenges the status quo sales process with CPQ​

Yaskawa is a world leader in process automation which manufactures up to 25,000 industrial robots per year. To meet the growing demand, the company realized its sale quoting process wouldn’t be able to cope. When quoting for new business, the sales team relied on Excel to capture a list of customer requirements. This Excel file was handed over to an inside sales group who manually created a quotation based on the list. This lead Yaskawa to turn to Tacton to help with their configuration challenges. “I know many companies hesitate to introduce a configurator because they think – our products cannot be streamlined. There were people in our company who said it wouldn’t be possible, but it was. It was the right step and the right decision to select Tacton.” Dr. Michael Klos, Yaskawa
