When do you know a growing software category is hitting critical mass? When close to a thousand people sign up for webinar-based certification in the first weeks of a brand-new program. Quote-to-Cash Certification online launched last week, and if any anything, the overwhelming response is further validation of how hot this topic is in the enterprise software space.
Highlights of the first presentation, led by Alex Gammelgard Director of Product Marketing for Apttus, included a brief overview of what Quote-to-Cash, the departments that are impacted, and reasons why integrating a variety of siloed functions into one streamlined process would have company-wide benefits. The webinar also offered a Q&A session in which participants had an opportunity to get clarification or delve deeper into the subject matter.
The next live module, Introduction to Configure Price Quote, will air Wednesday, April 2, at 10:00 AM PDT, and will be followed by three more weekly modules. There is still time to register for the program and those who missed the first presentation can still qualify for certification.
Those who attend the live modules and pass the brief certification quiz will receive a mailed Quote-to-Cash Certificate and an Electronic Badge for their personal websites and LinkedIn profiles. Certification in QTC is an excellent opportunity boost value within your company and gain marketable skills towards the next generation of business.
“The certification program empowers business users and administrators with knowledge and training to become the agents of change within their organizations and provide incredible value through the progressive management of this vital business process,” explains Apttus Chief Marketing Officer, Kamal Ahluwalia.
In addition, the registrants of Quote-to-Cash Certification’s first graduation class (those who complete the certification in May) will be entered to win a chance to attend Accelerate 2014 for free. Accelerateis the Quote-to-Cash event of the year, hosted at San Francisco’s prestigious Palace Hotel June 16-18.
