TSIA and Provus Webinar: Ditch Spreadsheets, Prepare for AI and Evolve With Professional Services CPQ

by | Apr 1, 2024 | Best Practices

We are excited to partner with TSIA (Technology & Services Industry Association) for an upcoming webinar, where we’ll dive into the topic of AI in professional services. As you know, TSIA is a leading advisory firm that helps companies solve critical business challenges across the entire customer lifecycle.

AI is quickly transforming every facet of Professional Services at a rapid pace, and the fact of the matter is that organizations that don’t take steps to embrace AI today will find themselves falling behind tomorrow. This makes the services quoting process an even more critical step for organizations trying to maximize top line revenue and optimize their margins for services offerings. But the majority of services scoping and quoting processes still aren’t structuring the acquisition and organization of their quoting data in a way that sets them up for success with effecting AI adoption.

The central problem? The majority of these quoting processes are still done on spreadsheets! Organizations are still finding themselves stuck in a world of multiple Excel versions, margin confusion, lack of data visibility and organizational silos thanks to overreliance on outdated systems and strategies. In order for Professional Services organizations to continue their pursuit of AI efficiencies, they need to check a few things off the list first.

Join us Friday, April 19th for a highly informative 25-minute conversation hosted by Mahesh Baxi, Provus CEO and co-founder, and John Ragsdale, TSIA’s Distinguished VP of Technology Ecosystems. Together, they’ll walk you through the crucial steps services organizations everywhere need to take to evolve their technology and processes so they can:

  • Ditch the spreadsheets
  • Introduce critical elements of both automation and collaboration
  • Prepare their data so they can best take advantage of AI driven revenue forecasting and margin optimization
