A configurator is a tool used in the manufacturing industry to create a product configuration by inputting specifications requested by the customer.
It calculates and selects the optimal product configuration and reasonable parameter settings for a product or service that has many optional elements or combinations of functional specifications, depending on the customer's requirements.
After selecting specifications, the configurator system calculates possible combinations and their validity, and instantly generates a bill of materials to be used for the requested product, as well as the necessary quotations.
Configurators are used in the manufacturing industry for quotation purposes.
Configurators are also used in the design of insurance policies, etc., when purchasing a car.
Configurators allow the customer to select specifications and optional features from a range of specifications that the company can manufacture and support.
Furthermore, configurators can provide an accurate estimate of the specifications and optional features to be incorporated.
Previously, the customer would have to contact the design or manufacturing department and wait for a response.
For example, at a business meeting, the company's sales staff can discuss the customer's request with the customer, immediately input and finalize the product specifications on the PC at the meeting, and provide a quotation based on those specifications. This enables us to respond to customers' requests more quickly than our competitors.
As a result, the time required for sales can be significantly reduced, leading to a significant improvement in sales performance.
With configurators system, the company's web-based system will select a range of specifications that can be provided in response to the customer's requirements.
If this is done manually, problems can occur, such as presenting specifications that cannot be selected at the same time, but using configurators prevents this from happening.
The configurator makes it possible to finalize specifications on the spot and present a quotation to the customer on the spot, even if the person in charge of sales is a new sales representative or a sales representative of an overseas distributor.
Furthermore, due to the complicated options involved and the fluctuating prices of raw materials, it is difficult for even experienced sales representatives to provide accurate quotations in an instant. The configurators system can provide accurate estimates that reflect changes in raw materials and other costs on the spot, ensuring fair profits.
Despite its many features, the configurator's system is relatively easy to maintain and can be updated immediately by entering accurate information on a case-by-case basis.
