Excellent Program

What do you like best?

KBMax gave our customers and engineers the ability to design a water quality unit to fit their need without waiting for a response from our sales people or waiting on a design from our CAD department. After they design their unit that fits their need, it can be sent to our CAD department to do any finishing touches that may be required.

What do you dislike?

If you don't have any background in programming, it can be a little overwhelming when given all the information. I'm sure that after I use the product for a while and get some more training on it, it will become a lot easier to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to provide KBMax with as much information about your end goal as possible. They are very knowledgeable and can help you along every step of the way.

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

It frees up our CAD department from doing simple designs for a customer that may not be that interested in our product. This allows our CAD department to focus on improving existing units and to further help engineers to finalize their design.

Great Program.

What do you like best?

It consolidates our inventory into an easy to navigate program and allows vast customization for our many and varied products. It also streamlines our quoting process allowing us to become more efficient. Also, the KBMax team has been great throughout our deployment. They have been very helpful in teaching us how to use the software, and are always willing to try to solve any issues we come across.

What do you dislike?

The inability to choose what to deploy. If any changes are made in the developer environment, all will be deployed if you choose to do so. The option to maybe choose what sections to deploy could be nice. But overall it is trivial.

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

KBMax is allowing our customers to view many of the products we provide in an easy to navigate program. It also allows us to speed up the process of quoting significantly by pulling information from our ERP system and autopopulating quotes.

Thanks for letting us know!

KB Max is a pretty great software system.

What do you like best?

I like some of the functionality and ease that there is in doing relatively easy to program algorithms for properly quoting and designing some custom pieces. The customer service is great and although I had some technical issues the development team was quick to help me through a remote connection and suggest my company purchase better hardware to use its modeling functionality.

What do you dislike?

I would appreciate if the program maybe functioned through a desktop app instead of via browser but that is not much of an issue. I think the main problem is that the tutorials and wiki help page could use some updating. I sort of feel that video tutorials are a must for some of the more complicated nesting and modeling functions of the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the required training.

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

We have been using their software to develop a more accurate and robust quoting system for sales. I am using some of the things learned from the engineering office and salesmen to create a easier to understand system from which crude models of what will be manufactured can be procured.

Excellent software and easy to learn and program

What do you like best?

Awesome team to work with. Ease of understanding and use of the snap block rules when creating and maintaining the configurators. Nice exporter add-in for SolidWorks that creates files that are easily uploaded for use in a 3D scene. Animation and Hotspots make the user experience cooler. Nested configurators help with maintenance and consistency.

What do you dislike?

When making future changes, not being able to either revision in Dev or make changes in Test. Copy and paste between configurators could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan the requirements ahead as much as possible. Think about what you would like in the 3D scene and how you want it to show. Think about possible animation and other scene interaction.

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

We are giving the user a simpler and more user friendly experience. They can see what they are configuring as they go giving them confidence in what they will get. The user can save, view configuration, change configuration, and send an RFQ at time of configuration.

Good software, no need to be professionnal IT to program rules in it

What do you like best?

Excellent support, especially for the "configurator" side. Simplicity of "Snaps" tool to program custom rules in it. Proactive team ready to develop when you need something the software can't do yet.

What do you dislike?

Constant need to switch between scene/configurator UI. Not possible to configure a parent/master 3D scene yet to allow writing rules and logic shared across all scenes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to establish what are your needs, your objectives, and what you need in order to reach them. Try to plan as much as you can how you are going to manage your data and your 3D CAD.

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

Quicker and more responsive offer building process. Create, obtain preliminary specsheets and get quotes more efficiently for new proposed products.

Easy to Implement for Non Programmers

What do you like best?

Simple to learn interface / yet versatile. The snap blocks make it simple to program even for those who do not program everyday. Yet the ability to utilize the direct code makes it versatile for changes other coding requirements. The support of the KBmax team is also excellent and they are extremely responsive when problems arise.

What do you dislike?

API can be challenging for some aspects of the customization. We rely on a heavy interface with the API because the program used externally and is branded with our website. Some of the UI on the website is clunky due to limitations in API and embedding features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you go through the training. There is a sizable library of information to help you out in the wiki but ultimately it is better to have the training to have a thorough understanding of what needs to happen. Also be very aware of the rules you want the system to follow. It is easier if you have them defined completely upfront.

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

KBMax has allowed us to auto generate product configurations in minutes that before would have taken hours. The ability to utilize the API to customize our look and feel have allowed us to use it as marketing tool and business development outlet that we did not have previously.
