Yoav Kutner, CEO and co-founder of OroCommerce, was interviewed for a feature in Industrial Technology. In the article, industrial journalist, TR Cutler questioned the merits of CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) when many advanced B2B eCommerce software solutions are the better tool. According to Cutler, “Traditional eCommerce platforms may not be able to replace CPQ, but best-in-class eCommerce solutions are able to do so offering offer native configurable product functionality.”
Kutner suggested, “An open-source customer relationship management (CRM) solution must include customer interaction data capture, marketing tools, dashboards, and more. Customer interactions, such as support tickets, email responses, and product views, are captured and tracked across multiple touchpoints, including B2B and B2C online stores, POS systems, email campaigns, and social channels.”
This option is quite basic, but it can be customized and extended. Providing ‘product bundling’ as a top priority feature is intentional, specifically because it will improve the way current configurable products work and make it basically a CPQ replacement.
Investigating these claims, it was determined that the B2B eCommerce solution has both quoting and quote negotiation functionality native in the system, making it possible to smoothly negotiate configurable orders. Similarly, configurable rules and workflows allow one to set up any logic behind product bundling or quoting and ordering processes.
