User friendly but it has show problems in the past such as no connectivity or slows down a lot.

Faster quotation process.

Pros

Easy to use, it takes you step by step, it has and does everything I need for quotation purposes and lets me convert my files in to pdf easily.

Cons

Slows down a lot some times, once you select an item and press continue or ok it takes a long time to show the next window of options, we've experience connectivity problems as well.

Hi Guillermo, Thank you for your feedback. As you may know the ERP partner you work with had the CIS instance hosted on one of their servers connected to the ERP you use. At the request of your management, the instance was transferred to one of our production servers in Arizona and we have heard that connectivity is now as it should be and everyone is more than pleased.. Thank you once again. Regards Steve

CIS Configurator

We migrated from an excel-based quoting system to the CIS Configurator about 3 years ago. We use this application to configure and quote complex engineering systems. The Configurator was able to handle the logic that was previously handled using complex excel formulas and look-up tables. Salespeople are able to learn the system quickly - we have over 100 users with a variety of technical and non-technical backgrounds. Overall, we're very happy with the software.

Pros

Easy to get up and running; very reliable - virtually 100% up-time in 3 years of use; excellent customer service.

Cons

As with any software, it was not always able to perfectly reproduce our legacy processes. However, we were always able to find an acceptable alternative.

Working with CIS Configurator & Quote Builder

If you are considering purchasing a quote builder/configurator program I would highly recommend CIS to be your partner.

Pros

The CIS Configurator & Quote Builder system will put Bravo Trailers a step ahead of our competition. Customer service and quality of product is key in our industry. Providing our dealers with a state of the art program that allows them to quickly and accurately quote trailers to their retail customers is key to their success and ours. The sales management tool also provides our dealers with a great way of measuring the success of their sales team. Working with the CIS Team during the data build and implementation of our program has and continues to be a great working relationship.

Cons

Depending on the nature of your business and how you plan to use the program the investment in time can be extensive. Be prepared and organized prior to beginning and make sure you totally understand the instruction & capability of the program purchased.

Our system has never let us down. CIS is right there whenever we need them to answer questions

Most of our competitors do not have a quoting system. Next to our outstanding product lines, this has added the support our accounts need to be successful and close deal much faster.

Pros

Easy to follow, it's fast and very detailed. The system will not allow a user that is not as experienced, build a quote that will cost the dealer money because some selected options require other mandatory features.

Cons

Would love to tailor to our largest accounts. Meaning, the ability to create a package, which most have an exclusive package for their dealership, but none of the other dealers can use or see it.
