The rating is based on several things:
1) Ongoing support requirements being able to be addressed by cross training existing Salesforce administrators
2) Apttus superior corporate vision for the quote to cash space
3) Apttus execution of the corporate vision with automated agents (Max), and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning offerings to leverage the investment in Configure Price Quote
4) Apttus corporate health and investment in the product line

It is critical to our sales process. We are not satisfied with all aspects of the product and have gone through many tough experiences with their PS, support, and PD teams -- but we're not unhappy enough to re-build what we're already built.

Implementation is hard no matter what software you use, so depending on the employee bandwidth at the time of renewal, I would consider transitioning if another software that was drastically better came along.

Apptus- Simple Repository tool with a too simple "Search" mechanism.

It is a stable repository management tool but needs to upgrade its search engine to make it more efficient and user friendly.

There can be an advanced search option which allows me to find agreements based on Contract numbers, Company name and Agreement Type as well as by affiliates.

Awesome tool, but overkill for us.

The business is not seeing the value and we are not ready to use the features.

We will likely switch back to native Salesforce.com and customize it to meet our needs or find a smaller vendor.
