Many businesses use Excel spreadsheets for highly tailored configuration, pricing and quoting calculations. Excel is powerful, agile and familiar, but sharing spreadsheets containing critical business logic creates many problems that can lead to chaos, including version confusion and potential IP exposure. Instead of discarding your spreadsheets and replacing them with a costly commercial or custom-coded CPQ solution, EASA offers a unique alternative.
Read on to see how EASA could transform your Configure-Price-Quote process.
Enabling “self-service” pricing and quoting is often desirable, but nearly impossible if you must share spreadsheets. With EASA, only the web app is shared, while the underlying Excel spreadsheet remains completely secure and untouched. Furthermore, if desired you can tailor the web app to appear as an elegant and unique user interface, completely hiding the spreadsheet origins.
Whether or not you have any coding or application development experience, you will be able to quickly and easily create web apps with EASA. Our low-code environment allows those who understand the requirements to create apps themselves, without the need to relay requirements to a busy development team. Simply transfer your CPQ process to an EASA web app with our simple and intuitive tools.
An EASA web app requires no software to be downloaded and installed. All you need is your usual web browser. This allows unrivaled flexibility when it comes to CPQ.
Zurich, a global provider of insurance products, were looking for a way to securely distribute spreadsheets used for product pricing and eliminate the common Excel ‘chaos’ issues. EASA’s software provided a solution that allowed Zurich to:
✔ Avoid version confusion
✔ Protected intellectual property
✔ Ensured data was consistent across systems and databases
