CPQ software (Configure, Price, Quote) is the digital link between customer and production. Core functions are product configuration (configure), pricing (price) and quote creation (quote).

Modelling without any programming knowledge
camos CPQ 365 contains a modelling tool that can be used to establish and maintain product knowledge quickly and clearly, even for complex products.
CPQ in the cloud
camos CPQ can be operated on-premise or as a cloud solution. Both solutions mean that sales teams benefit from a high level of performance and usability facilitated by scalable software architecture.
Online configuration as self-service
camos CPQ 365 is also used by customers as a self-service solution for preparing quotes. For this purpose, the software is embedded in websites or portal solutions (example Liebherr) or integrated into the online shop with checkout option (example maxon). Guided selling and 3D visualisation enable intuitive product configuration.
Today, employees can prepare a quote in three hours. In the past, this could take up to two days for extensive enquiries.

camos CPQ has made our quote process more efficient in the long term too, as one-off special solutions and their components can be permanently adopted into the portfolio.
Denis Wagner, Configuration Tools Team Leader at Siemens Energy
We opted for camos because the CPQ solution already covers a large number of our requirements by default. For example, automated approval processes, the ability to audit and the traceability of configurations and calculations.
Sebastian Appel, Process Engineer and Head of the CPQ Project at NKT
The camos solution for mobile product configuration means that we save a lot of time and the customer receives their quote significantly sooner than they previously would have.
