What is CPQ?

CPQ is a type of robust quote management software solution that helps companies automate the lifecycle of the quoting and proposal process – starting with the moment a customer supplies their needs in a company’s offering and ending with sending a detailed quote to the customer or prospect. CPQ empowers sales teams to create accurate quotes quickly, ensuring consistency while at the same time minimising error margins. There are a number of different solutions on the market, and as an independent partner we are more than happy to help you find a suitable one for your business. 

Who Benefits from CPQ?  

Any company that sells complex products or services can benefit from CPQ. It is ideal for businesses with intricate product catalogues, customisable offerings, and complex pricing structures, such as manufacturing, technology, telecommunications or professional services. Moreover, businesses experiencing rapid growth or managing a high volume of sales transactions can also significantly enhance their operations with a solid CPQ solution. That’s why we specialised in CPQ early and have expert teams ready to help you select a solution, implement it, maintain it and/or improve it. 

What to Look for in a CPQ Vendor?

We believe there are several qualities to consider when choosing your perfect solution. Here are some: 

  • Customization Capabilities: Ensure the CPQ solution can adapt to your unique business needs and workflows. 
  • Integration Flexibility: Look for frictionless integration with existing CRM, ERP, and other essential systems to maximise efficiency. 
  • Scalability: Choose a vendor that can grow with your business and accommodate future expansion and evolving requirements. 
  • User-Friendly Interface: Opt for intuitive software that enables your sales teams to quickly adopt and utilize CPQ functionalities without too extensive training. 
  • Analytics and Reporting: Select a CPQ solution that provides robust analytics and reporting capabilities to track performance, identify trends, and make data-driven decisions. 
  • Cost: Evaluate the total cost of ownership, including licenses, implementation, and ongoing support.
