Apttus, the category-defining Quote-to-Cash solution provider, today announced the results of recent volunteering and philanthropic activities sponsored and championed by its employees. As both a leader in the tech space and a growing international presence, Apttus is proud to highlight its deeply-engrained passion for volunteering time and effort to those in need. Having recently opened new offices in the continental United States and abroad, Apttus leadership is committed to establishing strong local community presence. Recent examples include:
- Sponsorship of the 2nd Annual Salesforce “Beat Blood Cancer” Golf Tournament, benefitting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event took place at the Renaissance Country Club in late October of 2015.
- Strong company representation and sponsorship of the Bike MS: Waves to Wine 2015 event, raising support and awareness for multiple sclerosis. The event, a 50-100 mile bike ride through the Sonoma Hills, generated over $1M for the cause, providing assistance for over 12,500 people living with MS.
- The last week of October 2015, Apttus’ India offices organized a donation drive of clothes, toys, stationary, and books to assist Helpline NGO and contribute to the development and culture of underprivileged children throughout the region.
- Additionally, Apttus offices regularly organize rotating groups, constituting hundreds of volunteers, to work directly with local Northern California organizations such as The Samaritan House, The Second Harvest Food Bank, RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching), and The Boys and Girls Club.
“Apttus, as a company, looks beyond traditional success parameters. Our growth and revenue simply aren’t as meaningful if we’re not using them to create relevant opportunities to introduce good into this world,” said Kirk Krappe, co-founder and chief executive officer of Apttus. “We are exceedingly grateful to have hired employees that are just as passionate about these priorities as we are – it is an honor to enable and expand these activities as we continue to grow.”
“It’s a great time to be at Apttus: not only are we advancing the industry, we’re also encouraged and enabled to be active members of the community,” said Michael Jackson, partner program manager at Apttus. “Knowing that these programs are just the start is really exciting.”
Apttus offices in Atlanta, Bengaluru, Bozeman, Chicago, Japan, London, San Mateo, Sydney and Ahmedabad continually seek out new opportunities to provide and assist organizations in nearby areas. New Apttus employees are provided 16 hours off strictly for volunteering, with no accrual required. As the Apttus organization continues to expand, philanthropic activity will remain a core value of the leader in Quote-to-Cash software.
