Your central location for data maintenance and structure
encoway CPQ Studio is the heart of the encoway product family and the central place to structure your product construction kits. In encoway CPQ Studio your products are “modularised“, i.e. “broken up” into pieces and reassembled using a specific set of rules. You thus achieve an optimal product structure that describes the largest possible part of your portfolio with as few individual items as possible.
Build product logic intuitively
encoway CPQ Studio is the standard tool for building product logic: starting with a simple if-then logic that can be “clicked together” by drag-and-drop, through complex calculations to the connection of external libraries. With encoway CPQ Studio even non-experts can create product logic easily and intuitively with minimal training. The expert editor also provides extensive calculation possibilities.
Maintain product data efficiently
With encoway CPQ Studio you can not only create rule sets but can also manage all the text and media information from your modular sales system. In addition to multilingual texts, language-dependent images and technical data can also be maintained. Intuitive operating elements allow use without any expert knowledge. These include a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor and a product structure tree maintained by drag and drop. Prices are maintained by country or region. The product portfolio can be prepared in such a way that certain sales organisations can only see specific sections of it. The integrated functions for mass data maintenance allow you to quickly add or modify large amounts of data.
Importing data from external systems
Typically, data from, for example, ERP or PIM systems should be reused during the product configuration. With encoway CPQ Studio, data from third-party systems can be imported and enhanced on a customer-specific basis with minimal effort, ensuring that they are available with the appropriate characteristics and depth of detail.
Data maintenance makes the difference
When it comes to choosing a CPQ solution, it pays to look at the data and rule maintenance as early as possible. In the guide “Data and rule maintenance in CPQ systems – what you should take into account“ you will find out what problems can arise when maintaining and managing product data and rules in Excel, Word and other expert tools, and what constitutes a really good tool for data and rule maintenance.
