All Configit products are based on the patented technology Virtual Tabulation. This technology has redefined what is possible with configuration in terms of complexity and speed, and enables Configit to make software that can handle and utilize complex product configurations in a way that is both powerful to business and easy to use. Through cooperation with clients, Configit takes pride in assisting organizations with complex configuration problems, as well as participating in shaping the future of configuration software.
