    A seamless customer experience (CX) is mission critical to keep business in today’s hyper-competitive, digitally transformed marketplace.

    Capturing and storing information is a crucial part of CX, and when done incorrectly, customer retention can decline. From first quote to the invoice, establishing loyalty and a strong brand reputation are major factors when it comes time to re-up.

    Salesforce Revenue Cloud incorporates products such as Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) and Billing to achieve this seamless process.

    • Why improving your quote-to-cash process is essential
    • Key things to know to ensure a successful implementation
    • Ways to make sure your quote-to-cash process evolves with your business

  • How product configuration platforms can help sales teams succeed

    Growing demand for customized and personalized products – and accurate quotes for these offerings – has accelerated the need for up-to-date information access to enable sales to configure products and solutions that meet specific customer needs.

    Download this whitepaper to learn about the benefits of combining Salesforce CPQ with the power, speed and scale of the configuration platform Configit Ace, including:

    • A scalable, automated CPQ solution to handle complex products
    • An open platform that can integrate with PLM, ERP, MES and CAD systems
