The wait is over. The much anticipated, Quote-to-Cash event of the year is upon us and industry luminaries from across the country and world are converging on the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco for the three-day summit.
Several months ago, a high bar for the anticipated number of attendees was set. The employees and partners alike responded by delivering 100% growth over last year’s registration number.
“At most companies, there are worries that there will be empty seats at your conference. At Apttus, we’re worried that we’d be able to find a location big enough,” explains Maria Pergolino, Apttus VP of Marketing. “For the second year in a row we have sold out. We’re lucky to have such fanatical customers, partners, and friends and are excited to have the opportunity to delight over 1,000 of them at our second annual Accelerate – the Quote-to-Cash event of the year!”
That kind of expansion is very reflective of the way Apttus has been growing in general. We’ve expanded our footprint, doubled our employees, and even added a whole new floor at our headquarters. Accelerate is a fitting name, with all things considered.
The summit opens today with a broad range of highly interactive training sessions, built upon the user’s CLM, CPQ, and Salesforce domain experience, and designed to help Apttus users maximize their investment. The dual tracks in Contract Management and Configure Price Quote will demonstrate ways to expand enterprise-wide collaboration, develop Salesforce workflows, and boost sales effectiveness by guiding users to the best deals possible.
The rest of Accelerate will be marked by a highly touted keynote lineup, backed by 40+ breakout sessions led by an exceptional network of esteemed companies, industry thought-leaders, and Apttus executives, all of whom are dedicated to customer success and product innovation in Quote-to-Cash solutions.
