The administrative tasks are relatively easy compared to previous CPQs I have been the administrator for. When new product rules or configuration changes are made they are reflected in real time as soon as you are done.
Steelbrick is user friendly, and reliable to account for our sales quoting needs.
I have been using Steelbrick for less than a year, and it is pretty easy to use. It would be great to have a more expansive knowledge base. I use support which has been great, but it would be good to have more documentation and videos or an admin guide.
Its configuration is easy, but there is not much complexity offered for the customization of the tool.
Steelbrick is definitely an easier tool to configure. Apttus requires maintenance batches to be run after any config change made which can be a pain in the A. Steelbrick gives me time back in my day to work on other projects as I can get through my configuration tasks much quicker.
