Marketing
Sofon Guided Selling offers extensive report and selection possibilities. In this way, marketing can be targeted and so undertaken more effectively.

Furthermore, Sofon Guided Selling makes sure that all documents are always presented in the correct house style. If changes are needed, they can be made easily in all documents generated in Sofon with a simple command. Thus, a correct and uniform image is guaranteed at all times. Sofon takes care of:

Recognition - strict uniformity of house style, in the local language wherever you are
Interaction - targeted interaction with clients possible (e-commerce)
Insight - more insight gained into (purchasing) behavior and (potential) clients
Focus - targeted marketing possible

Management
A company’s continuity is determined by the factors of predictability and liability, apart from a healthy business model. Sofon contributes directly to the predictability of turnover and related income by making sure of insight into outstanding tenders and orders.

Because only feasible products and deliverable services are offered and contracted, the risk of product liability decreases considerably. And because only correct offers are made, margins are ascertained beforehand for every order. In this way, you completely fulfill client expectations. Sofon takes care of:

Cost reduction - costs, margins and turnover are immediately clear
Predictability - fewer overhead costs because sales reps produce their own offers
Less risk - less chance of mistakes (product liability, cost of returned products)
Teamwork - improved cooperation between sales, development and production
Image - consistent, professional communication
Control - authorization of important sales decisions

Production
Sofon Guided Selling brings you faster production, improved manufacturing and less failure costs. Sofon enables sales staff to generate complete and correct orders for deliverable products. Anything else is impossible. This creates predictability and therefore calm during the production process. Sofon takes care of:

Accuracy - complete and correctly specified commissions
Realism - all sales orders are based on feasible products
Predictability - no changes during production as orders are immediately completed

Pros
The good thing about Sofon is that we can take care of adjustments directly ourselves. Model building, maintenance and management are user-friendly.

KK

Kees K.

The user interface performance is excellent and a pleasure to use.

KK

Kees K.

Our quotations are of excellent quality, both in terms of contents and lay-out. We often simply copied text from old quotations and spend time at checking through the entire text.

VS

Vincent Snels

Cons
With Sofon the errors in project forms are down from 60% to 0.

Dv

Digni van der Zande

Mistakes in order-entry, production and logistics have been greatly reduced.

Pd

Paul d.

This was time-consuming and prone to errors; it was for example easy to forget a change in rates. This is why we wanted to simplify the way the rates were put together.

Unbeaten in ease of use and value for money!

Reviewed 10 years ago

The product data and rules are maintained by the people that have the knowledge, not by it-people. Though 'off-the-shelf', the tool is highly flexible and easy to use. We could not perform without it.

Most poorly designed software I have ever used…

Reviewed 8 years ago

I use SOFON as an end user. There is NO possible way to overstate how VERY bad this product is. It is counter-intuitive, buggy, and designed in such a way as to require massive amounts of additional unneeded keystrokes ans rework. Run the other direction.

Pros

None

Cons

Far too many to list, see above.

Sales staff makes 90% of quotations without the help of Engineering

Reviewed 9 years ago

MarFlex is a developer and manufacturer of electrical deep well pumps for the shipping and offshore industries. The abundance of options and combinations made it difficult for the sales staff to provide an accurate quotation quickly; they often needed the help of our Engineering department. We searched for a provider who could meet all of our needs and Sofon turned out to be the best option for us....
