Headquarters: Portland, OR
- Zapproved, a fast-growing company, needed to replace several manual quoting processes.
- A streamlined process for sales was needed, particularly regarding approvals and opportunities.
- The existing manual quote template was causing a lack of consistency. A standardized process, along with an e-signature option for quotes and contracts was needed.
- With limited sales approval process oversight, the risk for inconsistencies was high.
- A lack of controls and options around the quoting process continued to present challenges during the selling process.
- The current annual recurring revenue recording method was manual, which increased the possibility for errors.
- The manual renewal process was very work-intensive and inefficient for the renewal team.
