CPQ & Aftermarket

Streamlining Manufacturer's Aftermarket Workflow with Advanced CPQ Solutions

Overview

The CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) industry in Canada is experiencing significant growth, driven by the rising demand for cloud-based solutions and a shift towards mobile and remote sales management. The market is projected to grow substantially in the coming years, highlighting the integration of advanced technologies in sales processes to enhance productivity and efficiency. Cloud-based CPQ products are leading this growth due to their scalability, lower costs and seamless integration capabilities into existing business processes. This trend towards remote and mobile sales strategies aligns with the preference of many B2B decision-makers for remote interactions, allowing sales teams to operate flexibly and globally. These developments are reshaping the CPQ landscape in Canada, positioning it at the forefront of technological innovation in sales and customer relationship management​​​​. [1] [2]
