Powerful. Innovative. Proven.
Connector The element Connector ensures that the right interfaces are available for every customer – whether standardized interfaces to CRM, ERP and PLM systems or tailor-made connections.
Merlin Core and Modeler While Merlin Core uses various algorithms to assemble the optimal configuration from the huge set of rules, Modeler guarantees the intuitive setup and handling of the set of rules.
Standardized CPQ interfaces
Consistent. Efficient. Transparent.
The connection to existing third-party systems and integration into the company's own system landscape are extremely important when it comes to CPQ solutions. If the necessary interface requirements are not met by the CPQ software, then a number of processes can be affected. This can result, for example, in the need to use several different systems that do not communicate with each other, leading to data chaos and manual corrections on a daily basis.
If CPQ software is integrated transparently and effectively into IT, end-to-end processes are created that make daily workflows easier and more efficient. Data no longer has to be recorded manually in the CPQ system, but is transferred directly and automatically via interfaces.
Merlin Core and Modeler
State of the art algorithms
The basis of Merlin CPQ is the powerful computational core Merlin Core and the element Modeler. Merlin Core covers all the technical basics and, above all, manages the huge set of rules in which all the dependencies, feature combinations and modeling data are stored. Modeler, on the other hand, is the intuitive modeling interface for entering product rules and dependencies. Our CPQ + AIA® software is based on Single Source of Truth technology: All data is managed in just one system and can be accessed by any stakeholder at any time.
Merlin Core uses the so-called SAT algorithm for fast rule set calculation. For you, this means in practice that adjustments to the configuration rules do not first have to be loaded into the product in a lengthy process, but can be used directly. Agile modeling with Modeler means that you can enter your entire product landscape and the associated rules and dependencies – without any programming knowledge at all. Often, the product management or the engineering department takes over the modeling of the rules. This means that the sales department does not need to have any expertise on which variants are technically feasible and which are not.
