A WEB sales configurator for front loaders is just the first step

One of the world’s leading manufacturers of front loaders for tractors, the STOLL Group, based in Lengede south-east of Hanover and employing around 500 people worldwide, works with ACATEC’s product configurator. This is how the specialist business is systematically implementing its strategy of closely aligning itself with customer requirements. The configurator enables the company to further increase its flexibility and performance. In addition to pricing , quotation preparation and process optimisation, the medium-sized business attaches great importance to the independent set-up and maintenance of its rule base. It has to be able to insert changes itself.

The different attachment parts for the tractors make the liftarms very complex. STOLL offers solutions for approximately 3,500 types of tractor – this makes for a very large number of variants.

The first step involved setting up the configurator and making it available to the sales support team over the Internet.

ACATEC’s strong point was that its solution provides end-to-end consistency from sales and engineering to order fulfilment. This “big picture” approach was an important factor for the decision makers. 

STOLL uses the following speedmaxx Enterprise product modules:

The guided, safe route to the correct and buildable variant,
