The Configure Price Quote (CPQ) system category has been around for over 20 years and in the US 83% of all sales people, regardless of industry or company size, have some form of quote configurator. The remarkable thing is that there has been no system-independent CPQ provider for mid-sized companies in Europe. Until now!
The founders of vloxq have all worked on, managed or founded surrounding systems such as ERP (business system), CRM, e-signing or sales intelligence systems. So we have both experienced and seen a growing problem where sales people should be able to present the entire product portfolio, provide the customer with a decision-making basis and, at the same time, give a professional impression.
A common issue that our customers had before they started working with us at vloxq was that there were too many manual steps to put together a quotation. This entailed a risk that something would go wrong somewhere along the way, which affected both margins and the customer's perception of the company. All too often, large and very complex excels were used.
The secret? Putting together the entire flow - from quote to delivery and invoice. And that's exactly what we are experts in.
Our customer solutions are unique for each customer and we, together with you and other system partners, ensure that the entire flow works optimally together. This gives you higher internal and external efficiency, while reducing the risk of manual and costly mistakes.
