Arms Sales Teams with Pricing, Offer Recommendations that Increase Opportunities to Close Bigger, More Profitable Deals

HOUSTON--()--PROS® (NYSE:PRO), a big data software company, today launched the new PROS Cameleon CPQ Fall ’14 solution, integrated with its award-winning pricing optimization. For the first time, PROS unites the power of predictive and prescriptive pricing analytics with its simple-to-use configure-price-quote (CPQ) capabilities, enabling sales teams to deliver smarter, faster, winning quotes to customers.

With Cameleon CPQ Fall ‘14, sales representatives can also easily create quotes anytime and anywhere, directly from their tablets.

“With today’s announcement, PROS again sets the pace for innovation, combining pricing optimization with predictive and prescriptive analytics and CPQ,” said PROS Senior Vice President, Products, Oscar Moreno. “Our opportunity-to-revenue platform helps companies gain an advantage over the competition by increasing their chances of winning, enabling sales representatives to respond to customers with greater accuracy and speed.”

The PROS Cameleon CPQ solutions are designed to help sales representatives win more deals by making quoting much easier, faster and smarter. According to Aberdeen Research, companies that employ CPQ solutions enjoy 27% shorter sales cycles, and 26% more sales representatives achieve quota and deliver 105% larger average deal sizes compared with companies that do not use CPQ solutions.

With today’s latest product update, PROS provides companies with seamlessly integrated pricing optimization and configure-price-quote solutions that enable their sales teams to better serve customers more quickly, anywhere and anytime:

  • From opportunity to revenue, Cameleon CPQ Fall ’14 enables easier, faster and smarter quotes: Sales teams spend far too much time pulling together accurate quotes that enable them to win deals. PROS combines the power of CPQ and price optimization, which makes selling and quoting easier, faster and now smarter than ever. Sales teams are armed with prescriptive pricing guidance based on historical data analysis and customer segmentation. The new PROS solution helps sales increase close rates, with a price and product mix that has a high likelihood to win. Sales teams are able to enhance their efficiency and effectiveness, and create a better customer experience, while improving revenue, margin and win rates.
  • Managing large, complex configurations on tablets just got easier: Cameleon CPQ Fall ’14 eliminates the requirement for back-and-forth negotiations and quote changes that can delay deal closures. The new quote spreadsheet enables real-time collaboration between sales teams and their customers, directly from tablet screens. With its new quoting interface, sales reps can quickly and accurately manage complex quote updates, increasing quoting accuracy and speed to better serve customers.
  • Respond more quickly to customers, anytime and anywhere: In today’s business climate, companies expect sales teams to provide immediate responses to their quote requests. With Cameleon CPQ Fall ‘14, sales teams can respond more quickly to customers, with the ability to create and update quotes from the Salesforce1 mobile platform.
  • Cameleon catalog ranks quote results: Voluminous product catalogs with static diagrams can make finding and selecting the right product a hit-or-miss challenge. The new Cameleon CPQ Fall ’14 solution with full-text search capabilities makes identifying and selecting products for complex quotes far easier. Sales representatives can use natural language searches to browse product catalogs, improving the speed, ease of use and relevance of search results. From product names to multi-language descriptions, product characteristics and data from associated cross-sell and up-sell products, sales representatives can conveniently identify the right products and respond more quickly to customer requests.
