PROS Launches Cloud-Based Pricing, Quoting Solutions for Mid-Market Companies on Salesforce.com

PROS Price2Profit™, PROS Quote2Win™ Bring Pricing Power to Mid-Market

May 3, 2011 – Designed to help customers improve business agility and increase customer responsiveness in highly competitive markets, the PROS solutions directly integrate with the existing workflows found in salesforce.com. Companies can maximize their CRM investment, giving pricing and sales professionals direct access to new insights that empower them to set and transact the optimized prices for every sale. With robust pricing information now at their fingertips, sales professionals gain confidence, which maximizes deal closures.

“Companies can no longer ignore strategic pricing as a fundamental driver of success,” said PROS Chief Marketing Officer Tim Girgenti. “With today’s rapidly changing marketplace and more sophisticated buyers, mid-market enterprises face the same challenges as enterprise organizations. Intense competitive pressure – and volatility in commodities and raw materials – underscore why pricing power is even more critical to mid-market companies. PROS combines the familiarity of salesforce.com with prescriptive pricing technology to help mid-market companies improve revenue and profitability, defend and grow market share, and improve business agility.”

Channel Partner Marketing

PROS will market the new mid-market solutions through channel partners. For its cloud launch, the company has partnered with iServiceGlobe to resell and support PROS Price2Profit™ and PROS Quote2Win™. iServiceGlobe offers vast experience in building pricing applications for customers using various CRM platforms. In particular, they bring a full working knowledge of the Force.com platform.

“As a CRM solutions company, we regularly evaluate pricing products and services that add business advantages for our clients,” said iServiceGlobe CEO Srini Katta. “We have searched for a mid-market pricing solution and, for the first time, found the answer with PROS. Our customers have made significant investments in salesforce.com, so they’ll appreciate the PROS solution developed on a platform they know and use. Both Price2Profit and Quote2Win improve the girth of our offerings and will quickly provide value to our clients.”
