Apttus

We use the Apttus CPQ primarily to configure complex engineered products. We are able to manage numerous technologies and install new technologies quickly. This is a key advantage as new products do not require an additional software build, but a simple data load of the validation rules. This tool has transformed our customer engagement process, and it allows us to enable customers to enter their requirements for us to review. This is much better than interviewing customers and entering data on behalf of the customers

Pros

  • Ability to manage large quantities of validation rules necessary for complex product builds.
  • No product addresses a company's requirement right out of the box, but Apttus CPQ is built on the Salesforce.com platform which is a distinct advantage for us. It allows us to build functional extensions, and customize the application to our specific usage.
  • Service and support is the key for any product, and Apttus has always made efforts to support their products with continual improvements.

Cons

  • Develop a mobile application that synchs with SFDC DBA and runs independently.
  • Advanced approval config is a chore and should be easier.

Support

Based on 2 answers
Tier1/tier 2 support can only handle native functionality. Customizations have to be escalated to developers which aren’t included in the support program.

I go ahead and copy the people I directly worked with on implementation for assistance. I would rate them an 8 for support assistance.

Online Training

Based on 1 answer
We attended 5 hours worth of webinars early on.

We had to understand how objects worked to figure out how to structure our data.

I would have liked more in-depth training but it would have been an additional cost

Implementation

Apttus1.0
Based on 3 answers
Be iterative. Take the opportunity to build a catalog based on how Apttus works well. Learn the tool yourself or use an SI. Take the time to build a configuration / pricing migration tool with X-Author for Excel or roll your own. Stick with OOTB Apttus as any customization will cost you every time a new version is released

Alternatives Considered

More robust than the competition from what I hear. I was not here when Steelbrick was installed

[It's] much easier to use and is much more user-friendly. It is also much easier to teach to someone who is not used to having a medical background. I really like how easy this is to schedule appointments as well. Overall I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking.

Return on Investment

  • Generated more than 12,000 quotes since we installed 3 years ago. Related to >164MM in deal bookings.
  • Training is not straight-forward as each instance is different. So, having a tools ops person to understand the deep offering is important.
