Other benefits and capabilities of Healthwise’s implementation of Apttus QTC solution will include:
- Increased efficiency for their sales operations and legal teams without extra overhead cost
- Complete 360° customer view available throughout the organization including orders, invoices, payments and account balances
- Flexibility to introduce new products and charge models without requiring code changes

“Apttus gives us the innate ability to link the entire Quote-to-Cash process together in one system,” stated Darra Wray, Senior Vice President – Finance, of Healthwise Incorporated, “We will be able to scale our operation and leverage the benefits of this great toolset at the same relative cost of our manual processes that were not scalable.
