We're proud to be considered a niche player in this year's Gartner Magic Quadrant for our configure, price, quote solutions.

We believe that our place as a niche player in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price, Quote Application Suites validates our laser-focused mission to be the leading CPQ provider to technology solution providers. To us, one of the key strengths of ConnectWise CPQ™ (formerly Sell) is how quickly users adopt the software, allowing them to see an immediate increase in productivity and accuracy.

What is the Magic Quadrant?

According to Gartner, “configure, price and quote (CPQ) application suites provide an integrated set of software applications supporting the configuration, pricing and quote generation activities that accompany solution and negotiated selling. CPQ application suites are also deployed to support self-service sales environments, including business-to-consumer (B2C) and B2B sales environments. CPQ systems typically include pricing engines, proposal generators, quoting systems, and rules or constraint engines, and are complemented by approval and authorization workflows.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price, Quote Application Suites is “a culmination of research in the CPQ market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market's competitors. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, a Magic Quadrant helps you quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner's market view.”

Why ConnectWise CPQ?

ConnectWise CPQ is an easy-to-install, cloud-based software solution. By natively integrating with top CRMs and automated workflows that keeps data visible and reporting simple, ConnectWise CPQ is designed to increase quoting volume and wins. Typically, users implement the software within 90 days.

The Gartner report noted:

  • Market revenue for configure, price, and quote software was approximately $878 million in 2016, with growth of 20% per year expected through 2020.
  • Our evaluation of 11 key vendors will help application leaders choose the solution that best meets their cloud CPQ requirements.

In other words, the demand for CPQ solutions isn’t going anywhere, and cloud-based CPQ needs are also on the rise. ConnectWise CPQ not only offers that cloud-based CPQ software, but does it with a smooth integration into an entire Ecosystem of solutions designed to help you do more with less.
