Apttus Delivers Quotes, Proposals, Contracts & Renewals all Inside Salesforce

Apttus, one of the earliest adopters of the Salesforce platform, aims to automate the entire “quote-to-cash process”. The end-to-end solution offers a variety of tools to extend the platform, including eCommerce, channel partner management and even external integration with popular products like Word and Excel. All connected to Salesforce by the guidance selling feature of Apptus.

CPQ and contract management from Apttus is far beyond the basic Pricebook feature of Salesforce. Mistakes are negated, rework is minimized and contracts are enforced. Apttus has done such a solid job extending the inherent features of Pricebook that Salesforce itself leverages the application for its own quoting and contract management!

That’s quite a vote of confidence.
