Variant CPQ is an intuitive, cloud-based, Configure-Price-Quote and drawing automation system for manufacturers using Autodesk® Inventor®. Variant CPQ securely extends the expertise of the design department to a company’s sales team, dealer channel, and end customers.
Variant CPQ is built on Autodesk Inventor iLogic and Autodesk Platform Services. This makes the implementation straight-forward, economical, and easily scalable. Variant CPQ provides the power of Autodesk Platform Services without the complexities and technical expertise normally required.
Users without any Autodesk Inventor knowledge can securely and accurately configure products, produce drawings, and generate quotes. Administrators control permissions for the products available, documents generated, and whether a quote is available immediately or through Request for Quotation.
Getting Sales and Engineering working together to produce accurate and timely proposals and drawings for configurable products is a challenge. Variant CPQ reduces the time and errors to create configuration models and documents, allowing design teams to focus on value-add product evolution and sales teams to focus on increasing revenue.
Variant CPQ is an excellent alternative to the now retired Autodesk Configurator 360 (C360).
The Trial site enables users to configure, price and quote previously enabled models from the perspective of an end-user. It does not provide access to administrative functions such as;
- Loading your own models
- Accessing the analytics
- Changing between Quotation and Request for Quotation mode
- Changing of user permissions
