FREEBIRD

FREEBIRD CPQ

Freebird is channelcentral’s latest Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) software package available to the IT Channel as a subscription service. Freebird offers Manufacturers, Distributors or Resellers their own CPQ tool to control and self-manage their products. Unlike other CPQ tools, it is ideal for Distributors or Resellers that are multi-vendor, but it will also operate in single vendor mode. The service can be fully integrated into an eCommerce site to provide pricing, stock and buy now functionality.
