Very flexible solution geared towards custom manufacturing. Great company to work with.

What do you like best?

It was a challenge to find a CPQ that we felt really met our custom manufacturing needs and understood our business. Many CPQ's seem to be focused on bundling existing stock products. BluePrint has the ability to handle BOM parts with as many dependencies as we need. In fact, it has more capabilities than we use.

BluePrint scripting allows us to add any business logic needed. This makes it extremely flexible. If you can't make it work with scripting, BlueZebra is able to create custom functions to meet your needs. They have a script generator for less technical administrators. End-product configurations and scripts both can be split out and combined to reduce duplication, making it easier to maintain.

BlueZebra customer support, developers and director are all wonderful to work with. The company is very agile, so can quickly create a solution to meet your needs. Support tickets are answered promptly. We had an issue on a holiday last year and a developer stayed and worked with us until the problem was solved.

Our sales executives and end-users like the simple and clean quoting interface, help windows and the ability to select options in any order rather than being forced into a specific question sequence.

What do you dislike?

With more flexibility comes more complexity. It's a trade-off. Our non-technical admins found the configuration setup side a little confusing at first. The script generator requires someone who understands if-then-else logic and logical "and/or".

Recommendations to others considering the product

BlueZebra is very helpful and easy to work with. These guys are awesome!

I haven't found any situation that BluePrint can't handle. Even if other CPQ products meet your needs, BluePrint may still be more economical.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By moving to BluePrint we were able to integrate CPQ with our CRM data. The configuration of each quote is passed back to our CRM so the data is in one place for reporting and a complete BOM can be sent to manufacturing.

Blueprint became the core software in our organisation

What do you like best?

The software is very versatile and seems to be able to be adapted to anything we want it to do, whether that be quoting very complicated structures or intergrating with other software. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and they have added a lot of new functionality to the program when we have requested it and it is possible to do.

What do you dislike?

I am not sure I dislike anything. There are other things I wish it did, especially on the drawing package side, but this is not what its core function is. Anyway we have gotten around this by getting the program to export a csv file that we can import into AutoCAD to do a drawing which gives us much more flexibility.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Speak to the team about what you are trying to achieve as they will be able to advise you whether it is possible and the best way to go about it. They are so helpful and friendly and always seem to come up with a solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When we were first looking for a quotation package back in 2004/5 we wanted one that would quote for the Oak Framed Buildings that we sell. We decided that the software needed to work out the amount of materials and labour needed for any building that a customer could ever imagine. Obviously there was a lot of work on our part to get all the rules in place but by 2006 we had a fully working software and have done many thousands of quotes since. We find it very easy to add extra bits and update prices which we seem to be doing on a regular basis. Blueprint has enabled us to give the customer a fixed price quote in a timely manner and we find it extremely accurate for what we do.

What CPQ solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Excellent Product

What do you like best?

The configuration engine is extremely configurable and powerful allowing you to build any kind of product with it. We have an extremely complex configured product with a lot of different options and rules. BluePrint allows us to do everything we need to do.

The Blue Zebra team are helpful and knowledgeable. Many other companies we spoke to didn't really understand

What do you dislike?

Pascal is used as the scripting language to create the "rules" for the product configurator on a per product basis. This isn't a huge problem but the system could benefit from a more modern language like JavaScript.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Speak to the team. Our main reason for choosing BluePrint over other configuration software was that the BluePrint team are extremely knowledgeable about product configuration and could easily answer our questions and concerns.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We moved from a system where the configuration rules for our product were decentralized in multiple different locations to being able to control all rules, pricing and costing in a single place... BluePrint.

Very helpful software

What do you like best?

The ease with which I can create a new set of questions for a particular service and then access them to capture the required information from any location .

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike really. Although at a push I might want my mobile phone screen to be a bit bigger so its easier to use the software on my phone but that is not the software's fault.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have an idea of what you need it to do, but definitely seek their guidance and be open to their recommendations on how to set it up. They showed me how to structure my items so it was easy to maintain and design new services as I needed them. Had I just translated my old spreadsheet thinking I would have probably created a tool that would have become un-manageable in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Configuring till / payment options for new and upgraded restaurant facilities. Also use to gather specific audit information for each facility which is usually gathered on site.

A true configurator

What do you like best?

The ability to configure hardware, services and services on the same screen and apply rules that affect each other. And prevent errors appearing on the quotes.

What do you dislike?

Nope, nothing that springs to mind. It does all that I need it to. There is also additional stuff that I do not currently use so plenty of scope for me to do more should I need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a really powerful configurator then this is the tool for you. Its a true configurator that can easily cope with the most complex of rules and large quotes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enabling the whole team to create consistent professional quotes fast. Knowing that they are priced correctly and that the relevant software and services have been sold. Reduction in errors. More people able to quote.

Very quick learning and responsive team

What do you like best?

The automation of previously very laborious work (calculations and products to load) that was prone to error is now automated. A record is created automatically of the calculation workings so a separate record(s) doesn't have to be attached.

What do you dislike?

It is an added level of structural complexity to the SF "opportunity" and "quote." The configurator times out when multi-tasking and does not auto-save. This is inconvenient for those that HAVE to multitask due to customer service needs. Navigation is not clear - minimal indication on Configurator of where the user is (under which Opportunity/Quote/Client). The page is wider than laptop screen and font size is small. Screen width issue is same as that for Salesforce so not sure whether this is within Blueprint control.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a delight to work with the Blue Zebra team who are quick to learn and ask very insightful questions. Very quick implementation, and any needed adjustments quick to be made. Couldn't ask for more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Record creating and manual calculation, as well as manual loading of products is now mostly automated.

Prevents human error. Saves time uploading other documents that used to be required, less writing required.

The error-proofing possibilities that the program creates goes a long way to preventing up-front errors that cost much in terms of management time to fix as well as customer dissatisfaction.
