Sealing the Deal: Unifying the Opportunity-to-Revenue Process on the Salesforce Platform

WHAT:        Configure-price-quote (CPQ) is an essential step in successfully selling any complex deal. Failing to execute the right contract against the quote and measure contract performance against commitments can result in significant revenue loss on the current contract, as well as successive renewal agreements. It can also negatively influence the terms used on future contracts. This informative webinar will offer insights and real-world examples:       

                • Building a unified, closed-loop opportunity-to-revenue process with CPQ and contract management within Salesforce, to maximize revenue and profitability while reducing financial risk.
                • Enabling sales teams to quote the right price for the right product and the right customer at the right time.
                • Empowering legal and contracting teams to author, negotiate and execute the right contract to maximize the full potential of every deal, every time.
