Nov. 27, 2014 – Configure One, a provider of web-based product configurator and CPQ (configure, price, quote) software, has announced a partnership agreement with SolidCAD Solutions, a Toronto, Ont.-based technology solution provider for the manufacturing, plant, visualization, civil and building industries.
With a desire to expand its product and service offerings, SolidCAD said it recognized a market opportunity for configurator and CPQ software in the country.
“Our goal is to help our clients maximize their investment in technology,” said Michael Kugan, SolidCAD president. “After a six-month search and comprehensive evaluation, we came to the conclusion that Configure One was the best option for both SolidCAD and our customers.”
Under the terms of the agreement, SolidCAD will market Configure One’s Concept Enterprise Product Configurator in Canada.
“Today’s announcement with SolidCAD is another solid step in our journey to increase our market presence in Canada,” said Matt Hall, Configure One solution architect. “The fact that SolidCAD is an Autodesk Platinum VAR with extensive engineering and CAD experience makes them the perfect partner for Configure One.”
Kugan said he believes many of the company’s 900 manufacturing clients will benefit from the capabilities Concept offers. “We were very impressed with the scope and flexibility of Concept. It will help our clients solve not only engineering, but also business problems related to streamlining the entire quote-to-production process.”
“During the partnership discussions, it was clear that there was a lot of synergy between the two companies, especially a focus on customer service. Configure One already has a strong presence in Canada, but our collaboration with SolidCAD greatly improves our capability to provide companies with the best software and support needed to streamline the entire quote-to-production process,” added Hall.
