FREQUENTLY ASKED QuESTIONS

  • What is CPQ?

     Configure-Price-Quote. Software that helps companies accurately define the price of goods across a constantly changing spectrum of rules and variables. 

  • What is QuoteBooks? What is QuoteBooks cloud?

    QuoteBooks is the backend quote management system, functioning much like a light CRM. QuoteBooks Cloud is a sales enablement and quoting platform for CTO or ETO products and systems.

  • How does Atlatl differentiate from other product configurator vendors in the market?

    QuoteBooks is the only sales platform built for manufacturers, by manufacturers. We created tools specifically for the complex sales processes of manufacturing companies and their distributed sales channels. We’re the first to streamline and automate the sales process so that you can instantly translate rules-driven, 3D and AR configurations into quotes.

  • What does it cost?

    Price varies based on the Atlatl solution, complexity of your product(s), and the number of licensed users.

  • How long is your implementation process and what does it look like?

    The implementation process varies based on customer readiness, the product you select (QuoteBooks CPQ or QuoteBooks VCPQ), and the complexity of your product(s). You’ll spend time with our Implementation experts who can consult best practices for Visual CPQ/CPQ and help implement your product into our platform, QuoteBooks. After we deploy our solution for your sales team and channel partners, you’ll be introduced to your Customer Success Manager and support team. All of our customers are welcome to spend time with us in Charleston, SC and we’re always happen to come see you!

    Yes, we commonly integrate with ERPs, CRMs, and 3D CAD software applications via our managed integrations and open API.

  • Can QuoteBooks help me manage my sales process?

    Yes, we built QuoteBooks with light CRM functionality for quote and opportunity management.

  • Who in my business will be involved in a project with Atlatl?

    Yes, through managed integrations with your ERP we can create workflows at the appropriate stage to pass along necessary information for production.

  • Do you replace CAD?

    No, we do not replace CAD, but we do provide a CAD like visual experience for sales reps, which can be shared back to 3D CAD software to eliminate reinventing the wheel for every quote.

  • Can you produce drawings?

    Yes, with QuoteBooks Visual CPQ, our visual configurator can produce live, dynamic sales approval drawings on the fly with dimension lines, plan and profile view.

  • Everything I do is custom, could your solutions work for me?

    We need to understand more about your product to determine what you consider custom. Our patented rules engine is very robust, however, we cannot capture one-off products (i.e. car transmission parts 1 month, airplane wing component the next)

  • I don’t have documentation of my product rules. How will Atlatl help?

    We have experience helping to create rules and logic, but this increases implementation timeline and scope.

  • What kind of device do I need to access QuoteBooks and configure products?

    QuoteBooks CPQ and VCPQ can be accessed through an iPad and most Web Browsers. For more information about our supported devices feel free to reach out to our CPQ experts at info@atlatlsoftware.com
