Our customers rapidly deploy the Big Machines Lean Front-End to automate inquiry-to-order processes and to better serve their customers and channel partners.

We founded BigMachines in 1999 to help our customers make breakthrough improvements in their sales processes by leveraging the power of web software technology. To accomplish our mission, we have built an enduring global company with offices in Chicago(IL), San Mateo(CA), and Munich(Germany) that attracts, challenges, and develops great people.

We deliver innovative solutions to complex business problems by continuously applying new technologies and our industry expertise to better meet our customers' requirements.

Many leading companies including SPX Corporation, Crane Corporation, and USFilter (a Siemens business) have successfully implemented BigMachines Lean Front-End to substantially reduce selling costs, improve responsiveness, and to grow revenues (see the results documented in case studies).

As a result of the success of our early customers, BigMachines customer base has grown rapidly and now includes business units of leading global corporations such as Medtronic (leading provider of medical technologies), Ingersoll-Rand (leading provider of industrial equipment), and Siemens (a business unit of Siemens and leading provider of water treatment equipment and services), as well as many innovative smaller enterprises including Mirapoint, Aruba Networks, MiltonCAT, and Shore-Tel.

We developed the BigMachines Lean Front-End (LFE) solution by applying our team’s expertise in web software technology and business process improvement. We built the LFE solution to meet the unique requirements of companies who sell complex products through multiple sales channels “out-of-the-box.”

BigMachines LFE digitizes selling processes and captures an organization's tribal knowledge to provide online product selection, configuration, quoting, and ordering capabilities for new products and aftermarket parts and services. BigMachines LFE ensures effective quote and order management and provides powerful reports, analyses and forecasts across all sales channels and customers. The LFE software easily integrates to CRM and ERP systems to eliminate duplicative data entry and maintenance and to fully leverage the existing IT infrastructure.

From the beginning, BigMachines LFE platform has been built for rapid, on-demand deployment through an intuitive web interface. Both users and system administrators only need a browser and a secure log-in to access BigMachines LFE solution from anywhere in the world. As a result, our customers can rapidly implement and deploy our LFE solution globally.
