Q2S Core: The ERP for Mass Customization and Complex Products

As the more than dozen capabilities listed down the page show, Q2S is a feature-rich ERP for companies that make mass customization and complex products. Q2S CORE enables you to run your business—to schedule, optimize, execute, and track in real-time your process from estimate and order entry to shipping and delivery.

Q2S is easily configurable, customizable and visual. There are additional modules for extra capabilities. While it is a powerful standalone system, it can also interface to your existing order entry, invoicing, purchasing, and other applications.

Features included in Q2S ERP Core:

CONFIGURE PRICE QUOTE

Enter data only once. Q2S CPQ features an easy-to-use single screen for entering sales orders and manufacturing work orders using the same number.

PRICING

With Q2S CPQ, you can price through a variety of methods. These include part and option pricing, markup from cost, price grids, a multi-axis price matrix, and mass price increase capability. For easy price management, you generate all prices from only one price book, using customer-specific discounts.
