Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Vendavo ® has announced general availability of version 8.1 of its software solution, which improves performance by up to 60% and extends powerful profit optimization capability to the Apple ® iPad ® and the Salesforce ® platform for the first time as a native application. Vendavo is the leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) Price Management and Optimization solutions.
A key feature of 8.1 is Price Protection and Price Cap. In complex business-to-business selling environments price changes are frequent and crucial to maintaining profitable sales during certain periods (for example, fluctuating commodity pricing). Vendavo's new Price Protection/Price Cap gives sellers insight into the impact of their pricing decisions on profitability, and allows them to enforce across-the-board pricing changes quickly and efficiently. This capability also gives selling organizations line-by-line visibility into how such changes and caps affect specific sales opportunities and deals.
With version 8.1, Vendavo has also brought the power to create, manage and optimize profitable transactions to the Apple iPad. Avoiding the common trap of merely giving browser-based access to pricing automation tools, Vendavo has developed a native iOS application, optimized for efficient and intuitive use in real time, during sales negotiations. The Vendavo Price Negotiator for iPad is now available at the Apple App Store.
"Profitable sales transactions are informed by crisp, unambiguous and readily available data," said Jamie Rapperport, Vendavo's founder and EVP of Marketing and Business Development. "With today's announcements we are empowering sales people with the tools they need to close profitable deals while significantly improving the performance and feature set of our solution within the enterprise."
In addition, Vendavo announced that it has extended its solution for Salesforce.com customers. Vendavo Sales Negotiator for Salesforce™ is a natively developed application for Salesforce's growing enterprise customer base. This offering will soon be available through Salesforce’s AppExchange ®.
Vendavo is the leading provider of Price Management and Optimization solutions for large enterprises worldwide. The company’s solution drives bottom-line results by giving businesses true enterprise-wide control of their entire pricing process.
