Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics consolidates its local quoting systems and processes into one global quoting system powered by Powertrak Configure-Price-Quote for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Minneapolis, MN- March 12, 2015 Axonom, a global provider of cloud-based configure-price-quote and visual product configuration software, today announces the launch of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics' new, global quoting system, powered by Powertrak CPQ. The new system simplifies Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics' complex quoting processes, speeds quote generation time, improves customer satisfaction, and gives the company a unified approach for handling all pricing and quotations.
Headquartered in Oslo, Norway, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics delivers innovative and sustainable global shipping and logistics solutions for manufacturers of cars, trucks, heavy equipment and specialized cargo. With 6000 employees worldwide and 4.3 million units of inland and ocean transportation to manage each year, the company recognized the need for one, central quoting system that delivers visibility into the quote-to-cash process, profitability, and provide an effortless customer experience.
"Many of our global offices operate using their own quoting systems and processes," said Glenn-Robert Monsen, project manager at Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics. "We could no longer effectively support and maintain all of our local, disparate quoting processes and systems in Europe, Americas, Oceania, and Asia."
The company conducted an extensive evaluation for a configure-price-quote (CPQ) solution that exhibited a robust rules engine, flexibility for business users to maintain the back-end pricing structure, and seamless integration into its global customer database in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
"We had spent nearly four months evaluating different CPQ vendors but found that Axonom clearly demonstrated the ease in which Powertrak is configurable and tightly integrated into Microsoft Dynamics CRM, in addition to a very attractive pricing and delivery model," said Monsen.
Powertrak enriches Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics' sales quoting experience by simplifying the complexity, ensuring accuracy, increasing confidence, and speeding the quotation time. Because Powertrak maintains Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics' complex tariffs and surcharges, its global staff can quickly and confidently create quotes in minutes with 100% accurate calculations.
Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has long-term strategies with Powertrak. "Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics selected Powertrak for internal CPQ use but they knew they could grow with us into future phases by extending quoting and ordering out to their channel via Powertrak Partner Portal," said Mike Belongie, COO at Axonom.
