PROS Launches Interactive Configure-Price-Quote Solution for Manufacturing and Service Parts Industries

Graphically Interactive Parts Diagrams Streamline Opportunity-to-Revenue, Expanding Supplier Reach Anytime, Anywhere

HOUSTON--()--PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today launched a new graphically interactive configure-price-quote (CPQ) solution for manufacturing and service parts industries. With interactive parts diagrams, customers can select and order parts directly from original equipment and component schematics. Cameleon Parts Quoting is embedded with predictive and prescriptive pricing analytics, enabling sales teams to deliver smarter, faster, winning quotes to customers.

The new solution is expressly designed for discrete and process manufacturing organizations, including those in the high-tech, industrial equipment and automotive industries.

“Cameleon Parts Quoting highlights our continued commitment to innovation, combining graphically interactive parts-schematics ordering, and predictive and prescriptive pricing analytics, within CRM and quoting environments,” said PROS Senior Vice President, Products, Oscar Moreno. “Suppliers are able to expand their reach through multiple sales channels, giving our customers a distinct competitive advantage. Our opportunity-to-revenue platform helps sales reps deliver faster, more accurate quotes anytime and anyplace, improving sales team responsiveness and effectiveness.”

With today’s release, PROS delivers an innovative, market-leading solution that enables companies to better support their service and aftermarket parts businesses:

  • Graphically interactive schematics enhance quoting and ordering: Customers often face difficulties selecting the parts they require from diagrams in product catalogs. With Cameleon Parts Quoting, static diagrams are elevated to interactive and expanding displays that help customers find, select and order parts directly from a web application or mobile device. This enhanced productivity reduces order errors and enables companies to better serve their customers with greater speed and quoting accuracy.
  • Smart quoting, faster response times for sales teams: Sales teams lose far too much time moving between product catalogs, spreadsheets and systems, building accurate quotes for the right products and the right prices that will help them win deals and meet their quotas. Cameleon Parts Quoting integrates intelligent and prescriptive pricing guidance, enabling sales teams to deliver smarter, faster, winning quotes to customers.
  • Customer information from any location: Manufacturing and service parts organizations serve thousands of customers that need to order parts on-the-spot from diverse geographic locations. The new Cameleon Parts Quoting solution arms sales teams with accurate spare parts data right at their fingertips, with instant updates deployed without any service disruptions. Sales teams are able to view and access information about customers, service requirements, aftersales questions, warranties and maintenance brochures from their salesforce.com instance, enhancing quote turnaround times.
