Configure One Feature Reviews

Evan Moore

Configure One was used as a front end sales configurator for a complex product.

2018-04-10

Pros

The out-of-the-box sales capabilities are also great features that can be very beneficial to an end user.

Cons

The point-and-click rules generation system lends itself to a somewhat cumbersome menu admin interface. This made the software more difficult to grasp initially.

Chi Lok Kwong

Overall has been positive. Easy to learn, hard to master.

2018-02-23

Pros

With the upgrade to v.11, the software has become more customizable. I also like the continous improvement via code update.

Cons

The Driven input is a great feature but also the worst feature since it does not allow adding or remove driver or Excel import / export.

Exceptionally capable and flexible software

2018-04-11

Pros

The implementation staff listened very carefully and responded quickly to our sales and reporting needs.

Cons

Implementation always takes longer and is more complex than originally considered but, in my experience, that's been the case with any highly-connected software tool.

Recommendations to others considering Configure One

Configure One offered a proof of concept Demo. I strongly recommend to others to come up with a challenging scenario of what you would need the software to configure. Having the Configure One team down to our site to teach them one of our challenging scenario and then be able to see the software properly configure our product was instrumental in our decision making process. We had 100% confidence that we were purchasing the right product.

The administration interface is difficult to use and not intuitive.

2018-02-20

Gives our customers the ability to design their own version of our products.

Pros

The interface with our ERP software was the selling feature and this has made it easier to maintain and update products.

Cons

The backend is very difficult to set up. It is not user-friendly and requires significant help from the ConfigureOne team.

Response from Configure One


Thank you for the review and insight into how we can improve. While we're happy to hear that Configure One has made some aspects of your business easier, we'd love to do what we can to address your concerns about the set up process. If you're willing to send us a note about issues with the back end and how we might be able to improve it would be greatly appreciated. We aim to make your experience with Configure One entirely positive and we're happy to discuss what might improve that portion of our application.

Because of its strong functionality, it requires a real up-front investment of time for complicated configured products, but the result is worth the work.

As designer and builder of our application:

2010-12-21

definitely recommended

Pros

Development of fairly complex interfaces can be accomplished quickly.

Cons

The fact that it is a web-based application means that the interface requires some getting used to if you are accustomed to more intuitive, locally installed applications.

Director - Sales Operations

2010-12-21

Concept is a great software that makes it very efficient to process our workload internally and provide our customers with a self service tool. We've been able to gain significant efficiencies in processing time and accuracy.

Pros

Customer support is very good. Product functions very well and has helped us gain efficiencies previously unachievable. Accuracy of BOM's has helped reduced costs.

Cons

Taking the appropriate amount of time to completely define requirements up front will save you of any rework/redevelopment in the long run.

Shelby Trueax

Configure One has improved our daily business operations significantly, mostly through time savings.

2018-02-27

Pros

It eliminates the "human" element from our daily processes; because CFG1 has a rules engine, it takes more time for initial set-up than it did in the past, but once a product is set up and all of the rules are defined, any user can configure a product without having to have a product expert check that the rules were followed or that the configuration was created correctly.

Cons

Also, some areas of the software have helpful information pop-ups, but others have either nothing or a very vague description of what the feature is and how to use it.
