What is CPQ ?
CPQ systems are in demand in the market, especially for the companies using Salesforce. Well, that is all for a good reason as they are indeed a very useful tool to boost the sales of any company with fast, efficient and accurate sales documentation. The results that customers have experienced with CPQ implementations represents a really big impact that this adoption can bring and it is mentioned in the sections below how it can be be useful to you.
Configure, Price, Quote or CPQ as we know, can be simplified as the process of providing your clients the quotes, no actually “ACCURATE QUOTES” every time and in no time. In any sales scenario the customer is the most important factor and providing them the best options and prices and correct information plays a great role in strengthening the relationship. CPQ helps in this process and lets see how,
PRICE is the correct price of the products for the Customers.
QUOTE is sale information presented to the client.
So, to understand this let’s think of a scenario. Astrea is a company/solution provider and you are a client looking for some Development work. You contacted them and the consultants at Astrea provides there high rated consulting services to you and added another value by explaining the Force.com solution and how you can add Salesforce CPQ to deliver your clients a great value. Just after you finished a call with them you received a Quote with explanation of the services, licenses and the best price that you is very competitive. That moment creates a very positive impact on you and you get impressed with the professional approach.
Do you Need Salesforce CPQ ?
- The answer would be based on the following questions that you can answer for yourself.
- Do you still write the Quotes for customers manually?
- Do you hope that the products and pricing for the customers should be right?
- You are not sure about quotes that you send or there are slipups/mistake in the Quotes?
- Does your customer has to wait to receive a quote and can that be incorrect?
