The wave of digitalization is fundamentally reshaping the construction industry, and at the center of this transformation are manufacturers of MEP products. With an increasing demand for speed and accuracy in the quoting process, MagiCAD Manufacturers Services offers customized Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) software solutions that are designed to streamline and revolutionize the way sales are conducted. In this article, we explore how CPQ technology can not only improve the sales process but also contribute to a more integrated and efficient building design.
What is Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) Software?
Basically, Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) software is a cutting-edge solution designed for sellers of MEP products.
This technology simplifies the quoting process for complex, customizable products and interacts with ERP systems to ensure proper data management. CPQ tools can be used by internal sales departments as well as distributors and revolutionize the way MEP product sellers quote and sell products and services.
“Our goal is to provide innovative solutions that help product manufacturers optimize their sales and streamline their internal processes,” says Ina Keinonen, Sales and Marketing Manager MagiCAD Services for Manufacturers. “With our CPQ software, product manufacturers in the MEP industry can now offer their customers a smoother and more customized experience while improving their own sales process.”

Challenge 1: Difficulties with product configuration and quoting process
CPQ software significantly reduces the time and effort required to configure products.
Challenge 2: Price errors and unevenness
