Peaxy Fast Proposal

Orchestrates models of industrial equipment to generate automated proposals with payback analysis.
Shortens the sales cycle and drives customer engagement to win more bids.

Peaxy Fast Proposal is a cloud-based model orchestration application that greatly improves the speed of proposal generation during the sales cycle. PFP connects the financial and physics models underlying each configuration, automating the calculation of key indicators such as NPV, ROACE, maximum margin, LCOE, lowest emissions, or any other critical metrics the proposal needs to meet.

By switching configurations, operating conditions, or other assumptions, multiple alternative solutions can be calculated simultaneously and compared directly, to more quickly converge on the best proposal. This fast and iterative approach drives customer engagement, especially if customer requirements shift during the sales cycle, improving the odds of winning deals.

PFP serves a wide range of energy proposal use cases, including reciprocating engines, gas and steam turbine power plants, wind farms, solar farms, distributed power and energy storage.

Features

Geotechnical context

Automatic fetching of site-specific inputs such as historical weather, seismic hazard, distance to coast, grid frequency, NERC region, solar irradiation.

Smart validation

Input validation and error correction to ensure that only viable solutions are calculated and evaluated.

Model orchestration

Integrates performance-, costing- and economics models to converge on stable key performance indicators.

What-if scenarios

Modular scenario components allow multiple “what if” scenarios, to quickly compare alternative sites, configurations, revenue assumptions and financing options.

Comparative analytics

Compare multiple solutions side-by-side and via interactive charts that juxtapose key performance metrics.

Document generation

Automatically generates proposal documents that contains a costed and configured solution, with options to integrate into existing corporate CRM systems.

Benefits

Increase customer engagement

by keeping pace with changing customer needs and assumptions

Speedily converge on an ideal solution

by rapidly iterating proposals during customer meetings, in real time.

Build customer confidence and trust

by directly comparing alternative configurations (or even those of competitors) for any given use case.

Generate more proposals

for more customers with the same resources, leading to more opportunities at a successful bid.

Use cases

Peaxy Fast Proposal lets customers take the lead to shorten the sales cycle

For manufacturers of industrial batteries, determining the cost of a deployment at a customer's site is often a complicated manual exercise involving multiple spreadsheets. And if the full potential benefits of a deployment aren't placed alongside the price, customers may choose suboptimal configurations (from an NPV perspective), or choose not to buy at all.

Peaxy Fast Proposal (PFP) automates the cost, price and benefit calculations of a battery deployment and turns it into a cloud-based service, accessible to customers via a web interface. PFP lets customers see for themselves the costs and benefits of configurations under various operating assumptions, and provides a rough initial price quote that can serve as a basis for further sales discussions.

PFP's modular design lets the manufacturer easily adjust the tool to multiple use cases — from home installations to grid-scale deployments — so that the information gathered and configurations proposed match the customer's needs and sophistication.

For the sales team, PFP's usage analytics provides valuable feedback into customer needs as expressed through their use of the service. These insights into market trends can in turn drive product development decisions.
