Etherios and SteelBrick Announce Strategic Alliance to Deliver Next-Generation CPQ Applications

Rapid implementation of innovative and cutting-edge Configure Price Quote (CPQ) software drives sales productivity, enabling teams to close deals with speed and accuracy
CHICAGO and SAN MATEO, Calif. (June 9, 2015) -- Etherios, a professional services firm and Salesforce Platinum Partner focused on delivering cloud-based sales excellence solutions, and SteelBrick, the fastest-growing provider of Configure Price Quote (CPQ) applications built on the Salesforce1 Platform, today announced a strategic alliance to deliver next-generation CPQ applications to Salesforce customers.
 
CPQ applications have become a rapidly growing addition to the sales technology stack for many businesses. Modern CPQ applications enhance the process and employee experience for sales teams, enabling representatives to spend less time developing quotes, proposals and contracts, and more time actually selling and driving customer engagement.
 
Through deployment of SteelBrick CPQ, customers increase sales productivity, eliminate errors, ensure accurate pricing, generate quotes and contracts, maintain compliance, and increase order value through cross-selling. Built and delivered natively on the Salesforce1 Platform, SteelBrick CPQ is substantially easier to deploy and adopt than legacy CPQ solutions, enabling salespeople to close deals faster without leaving Salesforce, while automatically keeping their opportunity pipelines and forecasts up to date.
 
Etherios provides customers with consulting and implementation services in the areas of Sales, Customer Service, Field Service and Internet of Things (IoT). Founded in 2008, Etherios has offices in Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco to serve a global customer base. Etherios capabilities span operational strategy, business process, technical design and implementation expertise.
 
“Our alliance with SteelBrick is in direct response to our customers who are requesting improvements in their sales effectiveness,” said Andrew Gaeckle, vice president at Etherios. “Companies that have complex pricing and discounting rules really need a solution like SteelBrick CPQ to enable their sales team to efficiently quote and close deals. SteelBrick provides the capabilities and functionality that our customers are looking for.”
 
“We are delighted to work with Etherios,” said Will Wiegler, chief marketing officer at SteelBrick. “Their broad industry expertise and talented team are a great addition to the SteelBrick partner ecosystem. Their experience and talent ensure that our customers will rapidly realize their return on investment in our next-generation CPQ application, and be positioned for long term customer success.”
