December 16, 2013 – Aliso Viejo, CA: Alternative Technology Solutions, the leading ERP and CRM service provider for small to mid-sized manufacturers and distributors and an Inc. 500 company, today announced its successful roll-out of iQ, a Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) application for manufacturers at the world’s largest software conference.

“We looked forward to Dreamforce ’13 all year,” said Vivian Keena, Alternative CEO. “We were excited to talk to manufacturers face to face about the flexibility and usability of our new CPQ product listed on Salesforce1 AppExchange, as well as our ability to connect their ERP systems to their CRM systems.”

In addition to providing custom demonstrations and leading deep-dive sessions, Alternative also hosted its second annual Manufacturing Mixer, which drew over 300 attendees. “Alternative's Manufacturing Mixer was a great success and allowed those who attended the opportunity to talk to many other manufacturers and distributors about their use of Salesforce within their organizations,” said Karyln Doyle, Director of Enterprise Strategy at TWG.

“At Alternative, we want to be the go-to services provider for all mid-sized manufacturers looking to get more value and agility from their software investments,” said Keena. “Launching iQ at this year’s event was a great way for us to show manufacturers the depth of our industry experience and expertise, as iQ was specifically built to meet the needs of manufacturers looking to make complex quoting processes simple, fast, and seamlessly integrated with Salesforce.”
