Configure One Celebrates Twenty Years of CPQ

Configure One Celebrates Twenty Years of CPQ

Oak Brook, IL – A leader in CPQ solutions with a focus on providing manufacturers with a competitive advantage in their respective markets, Configure One is celebrating its 20th anniversary on May 8, 2020. 

Founded in 2000 and headquartered out of Oak Brook, IL, Configure One has continued to push the bounds of innovation to deliver their best-in-class CPQ solutions for their customers. 

The company’s culture and values cultivate creativity, passion, and a collaborative approach that enables them to tackle diverse and technologically complex business needs across a range of industries.  

The Evolution and Future of CPQ at Configure One 

Having over two decades of experience in the industry, Mick McDonnell, co-founder, and VP of Product Development at Configure One, remembers just how far the CPQ landscape has progressed. He noted, “When we began, there were 2 or 3 companies that we could point to as competitors. Now, there are 2 or 3 dozen, if not more. The industry has also seen a lot of consolidation over the years, and evolution in awareness among prospects”, commented McDonnell. 

When asked what he was looking forward to in the future, McDonnell turned his focus to further development of the product, adding additional capabilities that bring further value, and improving on performance across the board. “The ‘job’ has never gotten stale. We continue to innovate and learn new things, challenge assumptions, explore new technologies, expand our customer base, and learn about new industries.” 

From Humble Beginnings to a Global Powerhouse 

Innovation has been a key component for Configure One from the start. “We were continually meeting customers that had a vision for CPQ and drawing automation and struggling to find a solution that delivered on that vision,” says Dan Howe, co-founder and VP of Professional Services at Configure One. 

Configure One began as a venture to tackle unique challenges that presented an opportunity to be overcome with innovative technology solutions. “Candidly, we didn’t know what we didn’t know back then,” McDonnell reveals. “While we had aspirations, we didn’t have a clear roadmap as to where we wanted to take the company. We wanted to build a product that people could use to improve their lives, improve their businesses, allow them to make more money, allow them to build better products, and we’ve achieved that.” 

Since its inception, Configure One has grown to become a respected global CPQ software solutions company. Their suite of solutions is flexible and agile, capable of effectively and efficiently enhance performance across today’s complex sales and manufacturing environments. 

Configure One’s Vision 

The team at Configure One understands that successful implementation of any new business system takes more than just the right hardware and software to get it right. Technology is only as good as the people, support, and service behind it. 

“I came from a company that had incredible technology, energy, and people, but the culture was brutal to the customer and employees,” says Howe. “It was my goal to build on the positives of that experience by establishing strong customer partnerships and employee experience.” 

Configure One was built on the principle of creating a culture that values deep collaboration and cultivates the passion of its employees. That culture has allowed them to develop a best-in-class CPQ product that is simple, agile, and powerful. Great software, coupled with relationship-based client partnerships, helps ensure clients get the most from the software.
