Today’s CPQ does all that its title initials claim as table stakes, and its new value is in making better use of time for sales reps and literally the whole organization.

In addition to the experience of using the technology, there are other considerations that play a role: things like maintenance, operations and ongoing support. While these considerations are less directly visible to the enterprise end-user, they are nevertheless important.
