PROS Named “Rising Star” in CRM Magazine’s 2015 Annual Market Awards

HOUSTON, Aug. 31, 2015 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, has been named a “Rising Star” in the CRM magazine 2015 Annual Market Awards. The magazine honors companies in key areas of innovation that are building solutions and partnerships that leverage CRM investments.

CRM and its panel of 14 industry analysts and experts rate companies in nine categories, using a proprietary selection formula that includes customer satisfaction, depth of functionality and company direction, among others.

“There’s no question the CRM industry is undergoing a dramatic shift in how the technology is being used,” said CRM Editorial Director David Myron. “CRM has escalated from serving sales management evaluating their teams, to today’s requirement that it provide easy access to essential data; personalize the customer experience; and provide predictive and prescriptive analytics that can scour oceans of data. PROS smart applications are at the core of this change, and we congratulate the company on its recognition as a Rising Star.”

“PROS is redefining how selling is done today with our next-generation smart applications for CRM,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Patrick Schneidau. “Our configure-price-quote (CPQ) solutions embed data-driven pricing and selling guidance that gives reps deeper customer insights and greater confidence to help close more deals faster. We are honored to be recognized by CRM magazine as a winner in its annual competition alongside some of the industry’s most admired companies.”

Earlier this year, PROS captured the CRM industry’s attention as an “elite” winner, along Microsoft and Salesforce, in the high-profile 2015 CRM Watchlist Awards. Paul Greenberg, president of The 56 Group, is an industry analyst and founder of the award.
