Find your CPQ tool 

Enterprise deal-making often requires complex configurations during the quoting process and an array of unique pricing rules at a scale not even considered a few years ago. As organizations mature, that complexity only grows—and it’s a significant hurdle to success for sales teams today.  

Many companies have simply outgrown their existing quote configuration and generation systems and can’t keep up with the number of moving parts during the sales process, nor can they integrate with downstream processes like contracting. The result is disjointed quote generation riddled with errors, inconsistencies, and outdated information that impacts efficiency and ultimately customer relationships. 

Why is quote generation so difficult?  

Sales teams are often stuck with legacy tools they didn’t choose but have to use anyway. Meanwhile, operations leaders are apprehensive about taking on the responsibility of either building a new CPQ solution or buying, configuring, and deploying one. In the end, it seemingly always leads to:  

  • Profit losses due to inconsistent and inaccurate pricing and product data pulled from too many systems  
  • Quote generation software that can’t handle hundreds or thousands of line items  
  • Difficult or limited configuration rules and pricing discounts  
  • Errors and process delays that create frustration and drive customers to other vendors  
  • Disconnected contracting tools that wall off sales from legal, and vice versa
