SteelBrick Launches New Release of its Popular CPQ Application Featuring the ‘Quick Close Cloud,’ and 20 Other Advancements that Make Closing Deals Easy While on the Go


San Mateo, Calif. -- June 5, 2015 -- SteelBrick today announced the launch of its Spring ‘15 release of SteelBrick CPQ (Configure Price Quote), built on the Salesforce platform and delivered across desktop and mobile devices, including Apple and Google platforms.  Salespeople can now close deals even faster and amend contracts quickly and efficiently from any place, any time, on any device.  

The Spring ‘15 release of SteelBrick CPQ introduces an innovative and cutting-edge approach to closing deals with speed and accuracy. Many of the new features increase administrator productivity and enhance the sales process, including:  

  • Quick Close Cloud -- Efficiently model complex, advanced approval processes, including parallel workflows and smart approvals to close deals faster. The Quick Close Cloud remembers which teams have approved which sections of sales agreements, negating the need for multiple approval cycles. Managers get instant notification and visibility on key deal terms, right on their mobile devices. Deals get approved faster and close quicker.
  • Social Action Links -- Streamlines deal approvals by allowing executives and managers to approve quotes and contract changes with the tap of a button, from within a Salesforce Chatter feed.
  • Dynamic Contracts -- Users can amend customer agreements on the fly to upgrade, downgrade, or modify plans as customers’ needs change. With SteelBrick CPQ, sales teams can now streamline contract amendments without having to go through the time-consuming, old-school processes that rely on Word and Excel.
  • Multi-Dimensional Quoting -- With multi-dimensional quoting, sales reps can create matrix-style pricing for efficiently modeling multi-year ramps and other pricing dimensions. In the past, sales reps added multiple line items within sales quotes to manage multi-year pricing. This new feature simplifies the process, ensures accuracy, and automatically updates pipelines and opportunities.
  • New User Interface -- A new, modern user interface, built with dynamic Javascript frameworks and web components, enhances the user experience, helping sales reps build quotes, proposals and contracts faster and more easily. Even new team members can become productive quickly.

Many of the new product enhancements were developed to meet the needs of fast growing cloud leaders, especially those with subscription services, such as marketing automation innovator Marketo. “As a leader in the cloud subscription economy, Marketo needs tools that are nimble and work they way we do,” said Bill Binch, SVP Global SMB Sales at Marketo. “We are already using the new advanced approvals features in the Spring ‘15 release of SteelBrick CPQ to streamline our deal processes. SteelBrick has changed the way we sell. It is helping our sales team improve accuracy, license our offerings in a more precise fit for our customers, and help us reduce our discounts. Those are three great wins.”  

“Businesses are increasingly doing business in the Cloud and closing deals on mobile devices,” said Godard Abel, CEO of SteelBrick. “Our newest release of SteelBrick CPQ further enables the growth of the Cloud economy by providing sales teams with the best, most advanced capabilities available, ensuring that they can sell from anywhere. SteelBrick CPQ shortens sales cycles, makes it easier for customers to buy, and drives more revenue for our customers.”
