PLM & SAE CPQ – a logical symbiosis

Use PLM data consistently right through to global sales

Use your PLM data sustainably and move it to sales at the push of a button – efficiently realize digitalized business processes and gain time for innovation!

With the combination of PLM & SAE CPQ, you can master digital transformation with ease and empower your global sales teams to create attractive and correct quotations in seconds, even for the most complex products, machines and systems. Queries from sales about technical feasibility are reduced to a minimum. The SAE CPQ configurator is based on the released PLM data – these are transferred from your PLM to the SAE CPQ with a mouse click.

Keep your PLM “technical” – in order to keep your PLM clear, sales relevant data such as explanatory texts, images and videos can easily be added via drag & drop in SAE CPQ. Sales-relevant configurations and solution finders can also be managed intuitively and visually in the SAE CPQ platform via no-code functionality – a clear separation of data maintenance along with symbiosis of the systems is the success factor for your company.

From engineering, product management, sales all the way to automatic order entry in ERP (e.g. in SAP®) – by connecting your PLM system & SAE CPQ you establish your single source of truth. With a click of a button, you can connect your PLM data (BOMs, attributes, etc.) in your SAE CPQ platform with all business-relevant data, such as prices from the ERP (e.g. SAP® S4/HANA), and maintain all sales-relevant data quickly and clearly.

If that’s not enough and you want to perfectly showcase and present your innovative products, you can create your 3D models for an interactive configuration in the digital twin in SAE CPQ with just a few clicks – the basis is your existing CAD data and SAE CPQ standard functions (no-code).
