Intelligent variant management

Ensuring success with variety

Growing portfolios, faster innovation cycles, increasing customer expectations and additional product and service offerings in order to differentiate yourself in the market: these are just some of the challenges that manufacturers increasingly face. Increased variance – from sales to service – leads to additional operational complexity and has a negative impact on costs and process quality. In order to be successful in the market, you need an intelligent variant management system that helps you to master the complexity and provide customised solutions with a modular product system that is as streamlined as possible.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Prevention and avoidance of complexity
  • Reduction of existing complexity
  • Management of unavoidable complexity

Transparency as a key

The first step in successful variant management is creating transparency. To do this, it is important that you define objectives for your product variety and look at your product variants in relation to the entire value chain. Make sure, however, that you also include support processes – such as data supply processes – in your consideration. As a specialist for the holistic marketing of multiple-variant products and solutions, encoway will support you with ideal tools and methods. In addition to our powerful CPQ solution for the marketing of multiple-variant portfolios, we can also provide you with everything you need for sustainable variant management – from consulting, the optimisation of your modular product system, and the ability to read out your configuration data, to support with the evaluation of this data.
