Columbus, OH (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Companies who sell customized products are looking for ways to grow revenues through partner and direct sales channels by improving win rates, reducing sales cycle times and increasing average deal size. On July 11th, TDCI sponsored an Aberdeen Group webcast outlining both ‘why’ and ‘how’ best-in-class companies are increasingly using Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) tools to do just that.

In the webcast, Peter Ostrow, Aberdeen VP/Group Director of Customer Management, and Principal Analyst for Sales Effectiveness, presents data from several recent Aberdeen studies that show a direct correlation between the use of CPQ tools and positive results in terms of sales effectiveness, sales productivity and sales order accuracy. He highlights specific data points about the effect of CPQ tools on year-over-year revenue growth, lead conversion rates, average deal size and channel partner quota attainment.
In addition, Tom Evans, VP of Sales at Great Plains Manufacturing, shares his company’s experience moving from a slow, error-prone paper-based quoting and ordering process to an all-electronic, web-based CPQ approach. He discusses the competitive advantage that the new approach has given Great Plains by guiding dealers through a streamlined and consistent process. The online software also enables them to work interactively with the customer to specify, price and order his company’s surprisingly sophisticated make-to-order agricultural equipment.
Dinesh Dhamija, TDCI Senior VP & Chief Strategy Officer adds insight about today’s complex multi-channel selling environments and what it takes to create a great buying experience, from generating awareness to the CPQ process and on to fulfillment and service.
