Product Configurator API

R9 is an API-based extensible configurator core with a very powerful, time-dependent product data model and flexible cross-domain rules. These rules can be linked to almost any action. They enable the combination of products and services from different areas or even different domains to create consistent, customer-specific offers.

Dynamic Data Model

Offering a single solution that is versatile enough for configuring a wide range of products is a tough task. To overcome this challenge, we engineered an innovative, highly flexible data model at the heart of the R9 product configurator service.

Context Sensitivity

Context enables rules to dynamically evaluate constraints based on data from within a specific configuration session, reducing the need for rules to be based on absolute values. For example, when the configured price (Context) exceeds a predefined threshold, such as 10% above the base price of the product, a specific feature is added to the configuration. A traditional rule would reference a specific price threshold, such as $100.

Performance

R9 achieves superior speed with regard to product features, constraints and market requirements, even for highly complex products. With R9 customers will not be left waiting for unresponsive configuration procedures to complete. With the ability to execute more than 10,000 configuration steps per second on products with more than 1,000 interdependent product rules, R9 has achieved an unmatched benchmark. Given the ever-increasing product complexity and customization that manufacturers need to offer, a CPQ tool that provides these capabilities in real-time is key to an efficient sales process and workflow.

Data Maintenance Suite

Products, features and rules are easily maintainable within the R9 Data Maintenance Suite, an intuitive user interface for data maintenance. All product data can also be fed into the system automatically via API.

Flexibility

API based

Modern IT landscapes are complex and microservice-based. This is why we offer our configurator as an API-based rule interpreter, leaving you with the flexibility to embed the service into your IT landscape as you deem appropriate. This way, you benefit from perfect product data management while keeping your ERP, CRM and PLM Systems independent. You can present your offers to customers via a user interface you have full control over.

Webhooks

When rules are insufficient to control the behavior of the configurator system, R9 offers the ability to set up further overrides known as webhooks. R9’s event-driven software architecture enables you to decide on configuration changes that yield multiple paths (such as conflict resolution strategies) as needed, and listen to any constraint-related events. For example, during promotions or for other limited-time product offers, or for exceptions to rules that may be temporary such as out-of-stock parts, it may be easier to override the behavior of the system rather than maintaining separate product rules. Take control of the configuration process via webhooks to provide external information for your customer or trigger internal workflows to optimize your sales processes and operations.

Timed Data

Time data allows R9 to accurately generate new configurations for any instance in time: past, present or future. Product features, packages and rules are always changing, and timed data provides the flexibility to accommodate any changes or variations. Timed data makes it possible, for example, to test configurations for next week’s product launch, or even debug a customer’s configuration that was made last Wednesday.

References

References enable you to improve data accuracy and minimize maintenance efforts by avoiding duplicating product attributes within rules. With this principle applied to your product rules, their complexity can be reduced significantly, and data becomes much more maintainable through a single source of truth.
