Automate to Dominate: Gain and Retain Your Competitive Advantage with DriveWorks

Article by John Mignardi updated May 10, 2016


Are you losing sales because it takes too long to create a quote? Do your competitors offer an easier buying experience? Do your dealers or mobile sales force have the tools to win business on the spot?

It is critical to build relationships and trust when earning business from new customers and retaining existing customers. While some customers will stay loyal with little effort, they can quickly be turned off by a slow or inefficient buying experience, especially if they have seen or experienced a better alternative.

Many companies feel the “need for speed” when it comes to providing quotes. All too often, the process of generating a quote requires interaction between multiple departments before a sales quote can be created. This process can be lengthy, be error prone and demonstrate inefficiency.

Imagine if you were able to design your product and generate an accurate quote as easily and quickly as finding your perfect car online.

Javelin has enabled many of our customers to automate the steps leading to quote generation. With DriveWorks Design Automation & Sales Configuration software, the future of automation is here.

By implementing DriveWorks, one material handling company in Ontario has:

  • Reduced quote generation time by 90%
