Your all-in-one web-based configurator
Variant is a web-based configurator that is built on the Autodesk Forge platform and was developed for manufacturing customers that want to streamline their quotation and design-to-manufacturing processes.
Variant goes well beyond Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ), where a user (whether it is a manufacturers internal sales team, a prospective customer or dealer) can make product selections almost anywhere with an intuitive web interface. The results include a 3D viewable model, associated bill of material and professional quotation.
Web-based, no install
Variant is accessible on the web, with no install, allowing easy access for all your staff and/or customers at anytime or anywhere.
Improve sale cycle times
Variant allows you to increase sales and reduce engineering cycle times by streamlining the quotation and design-to-manufacturing processes.
Variant produces professional quotations and other controllable outputs such as “an as-configured” model quickly.
Integration with Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle and ERP
Variant is integrated into Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle PLM as well as Autodesk Vault, making the product a crucial part of an overall workflow. It not only provides sales quotations, but also offers the necessary information for downstream ordering and manufacturing.
Uses Inventor iLogic
Variant uses rule-based Inventor data (iLogic) so there is no need to rebuild design intelligence. Variant enables users to provide design variations to users on the web without the need of or knowledge of Inventor.
