San Francisco – Sept. 14, 2015 – SteelBrick today announced the pilot of its SteelBrick Analytics app, powered by the Salesforce Wave Analytics Platform, allowing business users to gain immediate visibility and insights, from every part of the sales process, on any device.
The new SteelBrick Analytics app, built natively on the Salesforce Wave Analytics Platform, provides executive leaders with immediate visibility and insights into the full customer life cycle -- from quotes through contracts, orders, revenue and cash -- all in one system. By deploying SteelBrick Analytics along with the SteelBrick Quote-to-Cash app suite, including the SteelBrick CPQ and SteelBrick Billing apps, business leaders gain a better understanding of their sales and revenue processes.
SteelBrick CPQ enables sales reps to spend less time developing quotes, proposals and contracts, and more time actually selling and driving customer engagement. SteelBrick Billing manages all the complexities of revenue recognition, billing and payment collection across subscription, one-time, and usage-based business models.
SteelBrick Analytics extends the value of SteelBrick CPQ and SteelBrick Billing by providing full visibility into the customer life cycle, all within Salesforce. SteelBrick Analytics provides valuable insights for executives across functions such as sales, finance, product management and legal, for example:

  • Sales executives track close rates and average discounts by region and product family.
  • Finance executives gain insights that include average margins, payment terms and contract length by region and product family.
  • Product executives get real-time visibility into most often quoted/sold products and product combinations.
  • Legal executives can immediately see which standard terms are most often overridden.

Comments on the News
  • “By adding advanced analytics to SteelBrick’s next generation quote-to-cash suite, customers now gain meaningful insights from sales and revenue data from any device,” said Godard Abel, CEO of SteelBrick. “Building SteelBrick Analytics on the Salesforce Wave Analytics Platform ensures that we are providing dynamic visualization that is consistent with the Salesforce user experience, making it immediately useful and accessible for our customers.”
