Apttus, the category-defining Quote-to-Cash solution provider, today announced the company’s applications have been adopted by a record 500,000 users worldwide. Driving the rapid and wide adoption of Apttus’ Quote-to-Cash automation solutions is the ability to provide Configure Price Quote (CPQ), Contract Management and Revenue Management applications as one seamless process. Typical quoting and contract management solutions are silo’d and require extensive integration between multiple systems. Apttus’ Quote-to-Cash solutions and advanced deal management capabilities significantly impact revenue maximization through optimizing deals, improving enterprise collaboration and streamlining sales automation processes.
“We have been listening and delivering to our customers’ need for quoting, pricing, contract management and renewals to be managed as one seamless process. Past investments in legacy platforms and on-premise solutions have failed to deliver on their promises,” said Kirk Krappe, CEO of Apttus.
“Our solutions have provided a paradigm shift in automating the complete quote-to-cash process, are delivered as a service on the most trusted and comprehensive cloud platform, and drive greater business agility, revenue, and profitability for our customers. We are excited to see an increasing number of users all over the world benefit from Apttus solutions,” continued Kirk Krappe.
