In order to provide the best user experience for advanced quoting, Alternative designed an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. While built as a 100% Force.com application that runs on the Salesforce1 platform, iQ CPQ breaks the traditional mold of Salesforce rows and columns giving end users a fast, simple, quoting experience.
Manufacturers struggle with standard quoting due to their complex pricing and products. iQ CPQ 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 CPQ 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.
