Frequently asked questions about Expivi CPQ software:

When is CPQ software interesting?

  • When products have a longer life cycle.
  • When products are not tied to a season.
  • When products have a high value or high volume.
  • When products are complex and therefore configurable.

What type of company is CPQ suitable for?

CPQ software is especially useful for manufacturing companies that face challenges in configuring complex products with many options and variables. Expivi’s customers are particularly active in the following sectors: mobility, transportation and marine; industrial machinery and manufacturing; furniture and outdoor; construction and supply; construction and industrial materials; and electronics and machine supplies.

What form of pricing fits my products?

It depends on your desired output and result from the configurator. Expivi can handle multiple prices as listed below. If you want to talk about this, please reach out to us.

  • Attribute pricing: with attribute pricing, prices are determined on the basis of the specific characteristics of the product. For example, the size, color or material. and other options chosen for the end product are taken into account. This makes attribute pricing ideal for less complex products such as Doppio’s bikes.
  • SKU pricing (Stock Keeping Unit): with SKU Pricing, Expivi goes a step further. Indeed, thanks to the generation of dynamic SKUs, it is possible to generate products based on the parts used. The link with the ERP system ensures that there are millions of possibilities when it comes to configuration and pricing. This also makes the production process many times more efficient because the specific parts are in the order instead of products. Ideal for complex products such as Expandable’s trailers.
  • Script pricing: Expivi’s script engine enables us to offer our most advanced and newest form of pricing. With this technology, we can accommodate all forms of pricing for our customers, incorporating not only SKU-based pricing but also additional data from external systems. This powerful script engine makes complex pricing more transparent and insightful for our customers.
  • External pricing: here Expivi uses data from external pricing systems. For example, those of suppliers.

How does CPQ create more sales and higher margins?

  • Composable software: all Expivi solutions are modular.
  • The different solutions (3D, AR, CPQ and design to print) are modular and therefore can be implemented individually, but also as a total solution.
  • Expvi integrates with all systems (software) including its own CMS, ERP, CAD and PIM systems.
  • With the omnichannel solutions for retailers and manufacturers, the store floor and resellers become an extension of the webshop.
