by | Apr 11, 2022 | Services Quoting Cloud

Aberdeen Research had highlighted in a report that Best-in-Class CPQ users average five times greater growth in revenue year-over-year and 4-fold growth in net profit over a five-year span. You are a product company (physical product or subscription products) and you implemented a Product CPQ solution. You were hoping that Product CPQ can help you streamline the quoting process for the sales teams by making it easy to configure complex products and services and create accurate quotes.

If you are an organization that has implemented the Product CPQ solution, you are now faced with very different and unique challenges –

  • How do you improve your services attachment rate?
  • How do you ensure that you have a comprehensive proposal combining your product quote and services quotes together?
  • How do you make sure that your deal size increases without having to compromise on the speed and win rate?
  • How do you improve customer experience by giving them timely, accurate, and combined quotes to buy products and services together?

Most modern organizations are struggling with these challenges.

 

This is where Product and their innovative Services Quoting software play an important role. Many of their customers have realized the benefits of implementing Services Quoting (connected with either CRM system or Product CPQ solutions) and gained significant ROI impacting their top-line as well as bottom-line numbers.

The following diagram explains how Provus Services Quoting works seamlessly in parallel to your Product CPQ and yet fully integrates with your Quote automation process.
