Siemens AG is one of the world's largest technology corpirations. The company’s Energy division was generally responsible for energy technology products, solutions and services until sub-divided in 2014. There were increasing problems with the Energy division's proprietary product configurator as technology advanced, creating mounting challenges when combining certain products and functionalities subject to a variety of regulations. Siemens was looking to eliminate these limitations by implementing a more powerful camos CPQ solution.
Camos Configurator was rolled out for worldwide use in the Energy division for order processing. This fulfilled Siemens’ requirement of uniting standardised functions and products within one software application. In addition, differing regulations and partial system solutions were implemented for individual regions, which before had been challenging. The result was shorter quotation generation, creating a competitive advantage.
