Alternative's iQ, CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) solution, was designed with manufacturers in mind and speed and simplicity at its core. iQ's robust functionality simplifies the process of quoting complex product catalogs, pricing, discounting and workflows.
“We use iQ to create every single quote we send.”
Alternative has over 700 manufacturing customers and our consultants have an average of 8+ years of ERP or Salesforce consulting experience and over 15 years of manufacturing experience. iQ is the result of decades’ worth of experience in working with manufacturers to design solutions--iQ, our CPQ--that meet even the most complex of quoting scenarios.
iQ is built to offer flexibility at each step of the quoting process. Using an intuitive administration console, you can easily define your product catalog, any pricing promotions, discounting, lists of related products, workflows, and approvals. You can also customize the look and feel of the generated quotes to ensure brand compliance and consistency.
Alternative’s staff of Salesforce experts, technical consultants, architects, and project managers work directly with you to first listen to your current sales process and then map out an implementation plan to ensure iQ fits seamlessly within your key processes, enabling you to get the best return from your CPQ investment.
In order to provide the best user experience for advanced quoting, Alternative has designed an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. While built as a 100% Force.com application that runs on the Salesforce1 platform, iQ breaks the traditional mold of Salesforce rows and columns giving end users a fast, simple, quoting experience.
Manufacturing companies struggle with standard quoting due to their complex pricing and products. iQ is built with this complexity in mind and is a solution where multiple price lists, tiered discounting, various discounting policies, optional products, bundled products, on-the-fly products, and more are supported.
iQ has a rules-driven configurator interface that allows you to quote unique and custom products. iQ’s configurator handles complex calculations, dependencies between questions, and business logic allowing you to quote configured products quickly and accurately.
