Manufacturers often issue paper-based catalogs, Excel spreadsheets or non-interactive sales collateral to sales channels in lieu of access to their backend databases. With thousands of product options, and ongoing updates, product configurations are open to costly errors. These result is incorrect quotes that have to be reconfigured and re-priced, creating additional costs and delays.
SWL Platform™ creates a seamless link to manufacturer’s backend systems to reduce errors and optimize configurations and pricing. Product SKUs, configuration, pricing, discounts, rebates, and bundles are all available real-time. Sales teams get the latest pricing and solutions for proposals. But Yagna’s BoM Optimization goes beyond just access to the backend. Users can control thresholds for solutions; quantity level breaks can be identified to alert users of discounts at the next level up. BoM Optimization allows for end-of-life awareness, next revision, and confidence that everything is available from the manufacturer.
