CHICAGO, IL — PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced a partnership with SpringCM to integrate the SpringCM contract management software with the PROS Cameleon CPQ (Configure-Price-Quote) solutions. The combination will be designed to provide customers with the only end-to-end opportunity-to-revenue platform – with CPQ, price optimization and contract management – for their CRM environments, such as salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics.
Together, PROS and SpringCM will streamline the selling process and enable sales teams to increase their win rates, improve profitability and better manage the customer experience through the contract process. Both companies plan to offer the seamlessly integrated solution to their enterprise-class customers.

SpringCM is a sponsor of the PROS Outperform 2015 customer conference, scheduled March 11-13 at the Hilton Americas Houston. At the conference, SpringCM will showcase an integrated demonstration of the new solution on the Salesforce platform. They will also demonstrate a real-world implementation using an opportunity-to-revenue project roadmap that helps companies improve sales effectiveness, sell smarter, boost renewal rates and enforce customer commitments.
“Every organization is looking for smarter ways to grow their business,” said PROS Senior Vice President, Alliances & Partners, Chris Jones. “As companies extend their CRM capabilities to drive revenue growth, faster sales cycles and enhanced margins, they’ve recognized the value associated with an integrated CPQ, price optimization and contract management solution. We are pleased to welcome SpringCM as our newest partner and look forward to working together to help customers accelerate their performance.”
“PROS vision for combining CPQ and pricing with contract lifecycle management directly reflects our vision for providing a holistic approach to productivity, risk and visibility in the latter half of the sales cycle,” said SpringCM Founder and CEO Greg Buchholz. “There’s no deal until the contract is signed, and we see sales cycles bogged down in laborious exchanges that leave companies weary and frustrated. Together with PROS, our customers will have a streamlined opportunity-to-revenue sales process, enabling sales teams to be more productive and better able to deliver their numbers. For sales teams and their leaders, it doesn’t get any better.”
SpringCM and PROS will host a webinar – Sealing the Deal: Unifying the Opportunity-to-Revenue Process on the Salesforce Platform – on March 26, 2015, at 12:00 noon EDT.
