About This Software

Easy to calculate, configure and put together complete quotations, contracts, orders and other sales documents in any language. It is also particularly easy for product specialists to maintain, without the need for in-depth IT knowledge. This means that it is possible for product rules, prices, texts and illustrations to be maintained directly by product specialists, without having to transfer knowledge back and forth from the product specialist to the IT department.

Comments: The product data and rules are maintained by the people that have the knowledge, not by it-people. Though 'off-the-shelf', the tool is highly flexible and easy to use. We could not perform without it.

Pros: The Aebi Schmidt Group ( manufactures outstanding, world-wide-distributed agricultural, municipal and special equipment.
With a customized range of products and services we offer our customers appropriate solutions for almost every problem.
All our products (silo spreaders, snowploughs, snow clearing machines, compact sweepers, mounted sweepers, implement carriers, transporters and mowers) are configurable, from a few options to many highly complex options with multi-level dependencies and calculations. We use Sofon to maintain and spread the product knowledge amongst all our sales offices all over Europe. With Sofon a salesman is able to make a good-looking quotation in a short time without much product knowledge. Sofon supports the whole quotation process, and when a quotation becomes an order, a sales order and the complete bill of material and routing is created in our ERP system (SAP). Changes are handled too.

Sales staff makes 90% of quotations without the help of Engineering

Comments: With Sofon our quotations are of excellent quality, both in terms of contents and lay-out.

Pros: MarFlex is a developer and manufacturer of electrical deep well pumps for the shipping and offshore industries. The abundance of options and combinations made it difficult for the sales staff to provide an accurate quotation quickly; they often needed the help of our Engineering department. We searched for a provider who could meet all of our needs and Sofon turned out to be the best option for us. After an implementation of six months, we went live with Sofon. With Sofon, Sales no longer requires the help of Engineering for 90% of quotations. Sofon makes sure we do not make any errors and offer the correct combination to our customers. We are extremely pleased with the results we achieved with Sofon. Our quotations are of excellent quality, both in terms of contents and lay-out. We often simply copied text from old quotations and spend time at checking through the text. Now we know┬┐ Sofon is always right. We no longer have to read through it and can send it off with confidence.

Cons: No major Cons.
