What is a configurator?
A configurator is a solution that automates the design process of the order cycle and the offer generation process.
A configurator is a SOFTWARE INTENDED FOR COMPANIES THAT OFFER CUSTOMIZED PRODUCTS.
The configurator becomes the brain of the automation and allows knowledge to be stored and exploited in the form of rules, restrictions and product geometries, so that dependence on experts is reduced to a minimum.

A TECHNICAL CONFIGURATOR AUTOMATES THE DESIGN PROCESS (within the order process, the product customization), as well as the GENERATION OF TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION
The main advantages of the TECHNICAL CONFIGURATOR are the drastic reduction of delivery times, reduced costs due to the lower need for hours of the engineering team, a better quality and more reliable technical documentation, the elimination of the dependence on personnel with expertise in the product, as well as the disappearance of inventions and technical improvisations.
Customized automated documentation is obtained through the technical configurator: it generates 3D models, 2D drawings, material lists (BoM), manufacturing routes, control ranges, documentation of shipments and technical documentation in various formats: Word, Excel, PDF, DWG, etc.
Our configurators fully integrate with CAD, ERP, PLM, PDM, CRM systems by various market leading manufacturers such as CATIA, SOLID EDGE, NX, SOLIDWORKS, SAP, BAAN, etc.
A COMMERCIAL CONFIGURATOR AUTOMATES THE OFFER GENERATION PROCESS, allowing to generate more precise and complete budgets, in a shorter time and error-free.
The main advantage of a COMMERCIAL CONFIGURATOR is the possibility to set up products and automatically obtain exact budgets anywhere in the world.
During the offer generation process, the commercial configurator recalculates the price automatically, taking into account all the technical (size, weight, etc.) and commercial variables entered (discounts, rates, etc.).
Implementation greatly facilitates international expansion. The entire commercial network and the distribution channel work autonomously with the latest information available. It applies the personalized rates and discounts of each salesperson or distributor at all times.
Through the commercial configurator we will obtain customized automated documentation; the commercial proposal, personalized product data sheet, 3D models, 2D drawings, material structures (BoM) and documentation in various formats: word, excel, pdf, dwg, etc.
The configurators fully integrate with CAD, ERP, PLM, PDM, CRM systems of the various market leading manufacturers such as CATIA, SOLID EDGE, NX, SOLID WORKS, SAP, BAAN, etc.
