Configurator, a quote building product created by the Metisentry team, is the perfect e-commerce solution for wholesalers. Similar to an online shopping cart, Configurator allows customers to select customizable features to add to their product wish list including:
- Product Type
- And More!
As features are selected, Configurator generates a custom quote on-the-fly. This Software as a Service product helps improve efficiency by cutting back on time previously spent waiting for a wholesaler to make a price quote, while also replacing manual order-taking processes.
Configurator can be tailored to fit the needs of the company utilizing it, with the ability to add and remove features. For example, if artwork must be submitted for design purposes, the artwork can be submitted to the wholesaler directly through Configurator. If artwork is not needed, this option would simply be left off of the shopping cart.
In addition to making the order-placing process easier on both the wholesaler and their customers, Configurator benefits businesses by:
- Generating quotes on-the-fly
- Speeding up the sales process
- Storing customer order history
- Improving workflow efficiency
- And more
Configurator is mobile-friendly, making it easy for distributors and field personnel to access the online shopping cart from a phone, tablet, or other mobile device. This speeds up the sales process, as businesses can meet with customers and create a product wish list on-the-spot. With this, a quote can be generated, and the customer can be informed of the cost all in the same meeting. If the customer is happy with the product and price, the sale can be finalized via credit card or purchase order.
As product wish lists are created, order information is stored within the customer’s personal account; therefore, if the customer is not ready to finalize the order same-day, they can easily login and view the product at a later time. Configurator stores order history for completed sales as well, making it easy for businesses and customers to see what was previously ordered and assist with reorders.
Configurator is the perfect e-commerce solution for wholesale businesses looking to improve workflow efficiency and shorten their sales cycle. Learn more about how this wholesale printing company benefited from Configurator by automating the order-taking process and speeding up their sales cycle.
