Apttus showcases its industry leadership and commitment to customer success At Accelerate 2017
SAN MATEO, CA – May 3, 2017 – Apttus, the category-defining Quote-to-Cash and Enterprise Contract Management solution provider, today showcased its latest offerings at its fifth annual user conference, Accelerate 2017. The continued success of Max, the world’s first and only Quote-to-Cash virtual assistant, remains a highlight and example of Apttus’ commitment to innovation. Since launching in 2016, Max has been selected by over 20 enterprise level customers across every industry.
Max is a transformative virtual assistant utilizing a conversational user interface that will execute any command, taking away the hundreds of mundane, repetitive tasks that users typically need to perform in the revenue process. Max can also access Apttus’ machine learning to enhance the Quote-to-Cash process in unprecedented ways. Learn more about Max on Apttus.com.
Using any media channel, including voice command, text inputs, Skype for business, email or augmented reality (rendered inside Microsoft Hololens), Apttus customers can immediately benefit:
- Any task can be setup with Max and executed when the user commands it
- Max enables voice-assisted quote, contract, or invoice creation without the need to login into the application
- Max pattern recognition will recognize similar tasks and therefore preempt a user before even being asked to perform a task
- Max can prompt users to make decisions that are consistent with company goals, and give a “behavioral nudge” that makes clear how a product or discount recommendation will affect a salesperson’s commission
