Infor CPQ (Configure Price Quote) offers industry-specific functionality to manufacturers and distributors in verticals such as aerospace, fashion, furniture, agricultural equipment, doors and windows, and more; it allows an entire sales network to create proposals and quotes. Sales reps can utilize a guided quoting process, engineers can access technical specs quickly, and BOMS and instructions can be automatically generated.
Customers and sales representatives can view the specifications of selections while a rule-based configuration engine guides the process to ensure that only valid configurations are selected. Configurations can be created from scratch, or using previous saved orders as a starting point. 2D and 3D product representations allow customers to see the products that they have created before they are manufactured.
Infor offers multiple deployment options and step-by-step training. Infor runs on Microsoft SQL and Oracle database servers. Integration with ERP systems, Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, or Lotus Notes lets users leverage the solution to meet their needs.

This software is very robust. It is somewhat difficult to understand and the included help is less than helpful. It's much like learning a new programming language without any instruction so you can spend a great deal of time struggling through the syntax. Previous development/programming experience is definitely required to set this up properly unless you are doing very basic configurations. It does allow you to integrate SQL calls to tables outside of the included table structure which is a great way to pull in the data if it already exists elsewhere. It has a lot of great features however often times the help documentation will simply say "Custom Feature" and give you no clue how to use it! I like to be able to research things myself without having to reach out to customer support frequently and the documentation is so lacking you definitely end up reaching out, also documentation frequently neglects to use the correct syntax, omitting necessary punctuation! Overall I really like the product but would love to see some enhancements to the documentation and also some additional space to add your own documentation in the option list and matrices structure. (Option list Groups could definitely use this!)

Could use more online or local help on functionalities and items. Still an early user but would like to see more "built-in" help.
Easy to follow programming steps that are nicely structured visually.
Would like to see some sort of reporting that would show structure of rulesets in a single document.

Software had all the functionality I required, but encountered a minor issue when linking with CSI. Interface was easy to use and matrices and rulesets were easy populate.
