Alternative to integrate Drawloop’s automated document generation solution with its iQ Configure, Price, Quote application
July 23, 2015 – Aliso Viejo, CA: Alternative Technology Solutions, the leading CRM and ERP solution and service provider that brings the best of the cloud to manufacturers, today announced that it has partnered with Drawloop, now part of Nintex, to bring greater flexibility and versatility into its iQ Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) application.
“Partnering with Drawloop is an example of our continuous drive to enhance and improve our iQ CPQ product,” said Vivian Keena, Alternative CEO. “For us, it’s all about the user and the user experience with our solutions—Drawloop brings in functionality that makes it easier for users to produce higher-quality, more professional quotes for their customers.”
By integrating Drawloop’s document generation technology, iQ CPQ provides customers with more tailored and professional quotes and proposals. The platform provides the flexibility to build proposals from templates and edit on the fly with fully updatable Excel sheets, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and any other desired format, all while keeping structure and controls in place to maintain consistency across customer-facing proposals and quotes.
“Adding in Drawloop’s functionality to the core iQ CPQ product makes it easy for iQ users to edit as they prefer,” said Jeff Underdahl, VP Product Innovation at Alternative. “Particularly for businesses with very custom products, you can use Drawloop to easily add in visuals, product renderings, Excel tables—anything you need to create complete, compelling quotes for a customer.”
“Alternative understands the complex needs of manufacturers today and we are excited to partner with them,” said James Roberson, VP Drawloop division, now part of Nintex. “Our combined solution will simplify the process of merging data with contracts, proposals and quotes, allowing manufacturers to spend less time on tedious document tasks and more time building relationships.”
iQ is the leading CPQ solution for manufacturers and distributors. Available via the Salesforce AppExchange, iQ CPQ is a robust Configure, Price, Quote application built specifically to meet the quoting needs of manufacturers, distributors, and those with configured or complex items to quote to customers.
