Time Saved

When Conga works correctly, it saves me a ton of time! The only time it can actually create more work for me is if a customer has trouble accessing the document to sign and I have to create a manual workaround.

We currently use it to generate quotes for one business unit. However, we are currently in the process of implementing CPQ for our other business unit and are in the midst of deciding whether or not to use Conga CPQ. The division that uses it, Ready Mix, is extremely complex and offers 100's of products that are constantly changing in price. Conga CPQ has allowed to constantly change our pricing and quantities for product and generate quotes very quickly. I find it extremely useful and it has definitely helped increase our revenue.

We're using Conga within our organization to create documents like order forms and contracts . It's so easy to generate and store documents and send them to your customers to sign. It made the entire process quite streamlined.The Conga composer and Conga sign integrates pretty well with Salesforce so it's a smooth process of document generation and mapping.

Conga CPQ is a key part of our sales and renewal process, processing product inputs to generate quotes and sales orders in a range of templates and which can be downloaded as Word or PDF and even sent directly to the customer with an email template. It's a useful and intuitive tool that allows us to quickly collect signatures from clients to close the sale.

We needed something that would integrated with Salesforce and be able to provide product listing and suggestion for the sales rep. Also due to our extended number of product offerings, it was difficult to know what products could be sold together and what are included in the existing bundle. This was causing a lot of issues with the quotes that were sent to the customers and also causing cancellation of orders due to incorrect fulfillment.

In our organization, this tool [Conga CPQ] is used to create complex bundle structures along with attribute based pricing. It supports [a] variety of configuration options like Attitude Rules and Constraint Rules. It is used by our practice and solve[s] the problem that Salesforce CPQ has that is the UI is pretty good and interactive.

The Apttus Configure Price Quote (CPQ) tool is being used by our Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory sales organization. This includes a variety of different sales teams with different sales processes and pricing models. The spectrum ranges from SaaS implementations with 12-18 month sales cycles, negotiation of annual renewals of existing contracts for access to online content (3-6 months prior to renewal date), to transactional book sales occurring same day.

The CPQ tool helps sales reps to:

  • Assemble the appropriate product variations and combinations for qualifying opportunities
  • Conduct needs assessment exercises
  • Identify the appropriate product combinations for customers
  • Ensure that they arrive at suitable price for specific product mixes or bundles
  • Ensure that the details concerning initial estimates and final quotes are represented accurately

The CPQ tool also:

  1. Substantially reduced cycle times to create complex quotes, proposals and orders
  2. Reduced quoting errors and rework caused by errors
  3. Ensured discounts and pricing are accurate based on standard pricing rules
  4. Ensured discounts and pricing were approved, prior to providing the quote to the customer
  5. In conjunction with our adoption of eSignature, reduced returns due to speculative ordering

The Apttus tool is great for managing the contract management lifecycle. It integrates nicely into the Salesforce.com platform. It has eliminated a lot of manual steps required to generate contracts, reduced the QA process, and enabled us to decrease the time it takes to craft and execute a contract to push it through the process.

Apttus was brought in to use globally for all of Sales in generating quotes and contracts (the two are different in this case) to be sent and signed by customers. It is being used across Sales globally. The business problem it was supposed to address is to help our sales teams produce quotes faster, in the correct format, and be able to send them on the fly through Apttus/Salesforce to the customer to be reviewed.

We use Apttus CPQ across our sales organization the create quotes. Prior to using Apttus, we had multiple ways of quoting including using an Excel worksheet. Today we all use the same tool and across sales and accounting to go from quote to cash. This includes using it to create assets and bill auto-renewals. This has automated several processes that used to be independent systems that often did not match.

We recently signed a contract with Apttus to leverage their Contract Lifecycle Management application to better automate the way we generate, approve, deliver and track our contracts within our Salesforce.com environment. The Apttus team got to know our business and understand our challenges and became a trusted partner to our business. Their solution will help us eliminate many of the manual steps required to process our contracts; reduce the number of manual quality checks; enable us to better search and track contracts by specific terms and ultimately increase the speed at which we are able to push our contracts through our process.

Apttus's CPQ is a simple yet powerful quoting solution tool for sales. Most of the times, finding a solution that is easy to use for sales reps and sales managers means spending a lot of time reviewing processes, training and such. Apptus's CPQ is quite straightforward and once it's set up it provides sales reps a kind-of streamlined process to get customer-ready quotes (even executable ones) in a matter of minutes. The fact that we were able to use within our Salesforce.com platform only made the experience leaner and better for both the reps and myself.

Some things that could definitely be better are:

  • Speed. At some points (especially quarter end) when a huge number of reps were using the tool, we would suffer a heavy lag that would time-out operations most of the times.
  • Mobile app. If there's one, we never used it. Not sure if it's our own company policy in regards to apps, or if there's none actually. If there's none, it would be good to have one.

Apttus is being used to generate customer proposals for our direct customers in North America. We anticipate having Apttus CPQ rolled out to EMEA and APAC by the end of 2016. The solution is fully integrated with our SFDC sales processes. Our customer proposals include the customization of our product, pricing that may be freely negotiated or based on a contract, up to 4 levels of approval and the presentation of the quote to the end customer.

Apttus CPQ is being used by our customer and engineering organization to configure custom products. The CPQ accelerates the time to generate the bill of material. It is an engineering process that used to take days or even weeks, but with CPQ, it takes only minutes.

EverString is a SaaS platform that helps B2B organizations identify and engage with their ideal customers by providing Predictive Demand Generation, Insights, Scoring and Segmentation. We have some typical SaaS characteristics—subscription sales model, a small number of products at first glance but a tiered structure, meaning selling is a lot more complicated than it seems, and a business that is growing and evolving fast. We had common problems in our quoting process - a disconnect between our CRM data and what was put in front of our customers. [They were] simple errors that should never happen. Additionally, as we grew we needed to relieve the burden to Finance and Legal.

We went with Apttus for two simple reasons: they were fantastic to work with and they could solve our problems. The sales process was incredibly smooth—just a great team overall. The CPQ does exactly what we wanted by creating consistency in our sales process, something we needed to scale. CPQ forces you to look critically at your sales process, but their team of experts helped us achieve that in a thoughtful way. You don’t want to just automate what you already do… you have to think about doing it better, the Apttus team really helped us with that. Great experience overall, would definitely recommend them.

EverString is a predictive marketing platform and we’ve been growing fast in the last few years. Sales, sales team, and our solution suite have all grown rapidly. We needed repeatability and consistency in our sales process—like any business growing rapidly and needing to scale. We wanted to get a CPQ in early in our growth to solve for these problems and help us scale easier. We choose Apttus because they could give us exactly what we needed and have been great partners to our business.

The system has been easy to use and the sales team adopted it quickly. We wanted to think through as many scenarios as possible in terms of what our future state and needs might be. Apttus helped us through this process—that’s critical. Apttus has been a partner, not a vendor, which is what you need for CPQ. Our goal was to future proof our organization, and we can see the success there in our growth.

Before Apttus, we used a manual process to configure products and calculate pricing while providing quotes to customers. This process was not consistent, it was very cumbersome, complex, high-maintenance, and error prone. We also did not have the ability to systematically track the progression of the quote through negotiations with the customer and analyze the impact of negotiations on the final outcome.

With Apttus CPQ, we were able streamline and optimize the product configuration, pricing and proposal creation and management process. We also seamlessly integrated this with our existing sales and contract generation processes. Our sales team now has the ability to configure product offers in a consistent manner with improved efficiency, and are able to track and improve related sales metrics.

This tool has proven over and over again that it was more than worth the investment. My sales team's pipelines are up to date (I think for the first time since we got Salesforce) and I've been able to use the tool for several nasty projects (like updating country name formats, etc) that used to take days - and now take less than an hour. My favorite part is the Quick App feature - which I utilize all of the time to complete one-off tasks that come to light. Right now, our sales and finance teams are the primary users, but we have hopes to move project management on board soon!

We are currently using X-Author for Excel with Salesforce to update and populate formula fields in Excel and then have X-Author attach the document to the opportunity record. It has made our interaction with Excel easy and effortless. The setup was less than 20 minutes and worked well with our complicated Excel spreadsheet. Thanks Apttus for making our lives easier and less complicated.

My company uses X-Author throughout various departments. It is an excellent tool because it allows users to operate in Excel, an environment with which they are more familiar. Allowing the users to work in Excel while simultaneously updating records in Salesforce is a critical aspect of generating accurate data in reports.

As an engineer, I spend a majority of my day working in Excel managing lists, performing calculations, etc. I had limited knowledge of administrative tasks in maintaining the Salesforce org when my company first got this app, but was able to easily learn how to integrate my design spreadsheets with Salesforce and created complex X-Author apps. This application has greatly propelled our engineering / technical sales departments to the next level of efficiency!

Our North American and UK based sales teams use Apttus for all quotes (new business, add-on sales, renewals). We use it to manage pricing, quoting, and assets. We use X-Author for Word for our quote/order form. We have about 30,000 active price points, 400K active assets, and a few hundred inclusion rules.
