How are DriveWorks Customers Benefitting from the Synergy of DriveWorks Design Automation and CPQ for Manufacturing?

Dolphin Solutions, based in the UK, design and supply a range of products and accessories for commercial washrooms. Before implementing DriveWorks technology, Dolphin Solution’s order process was lengthy and time-consuming with each individual bespoke mirror unit, along with all the associated production files, designed manually from scratch using SOLIDWORKS. This involved a lot of complicated dialogue between the sales team who handle the initial request and the design team.

By implementing DriveWorks design automation and CPQ for Manufacturing, Dolphin Solutions has transformed their sales process, allowing sales teams to guide customers through product options and submit orders straight to the design team. Errors have been significantly reduced using rules-based guided selling that ensures that every product option available is manufacturable.
