Accelerate 2018 – Tightened Seat Belts
Before you zoom out on your long weekend, let’s talk about the highlights of Accelerate 2018. Apttus, undisputed leader in middle office platform, held its annual conference “Accelerate 2018” in San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts from May 14th to 16th. Accelerate 2018 showed that the best platforms can be better as Sir Richard Branson, Accelerate’s keynote speaker showed optimism about future of middle office platform and the revolution of value in what customer relationship management brings.
Our team of experts lead by Protik Mukhopadhyay, our Managing Partner, attended Accelerate. Protik’s session on Quote-to-Cash Upgrades was a great success and was attended by some of the industry leaders. He was joined by Jason Pritchard, a thought leader from Healthcare & Life Sciences, who did a deep dive into how a Life Science’s giant enhanced its QTC capabilities with our services. In their session, they spoke about how upgrades can revolutionize the QTC experience!
Apptus Omni – Connect ALL
The best part of Accelerate 2018 was the people. With leaders of different businesses and key decision makers, it was a reunion of the heavy hitters in the space. As Apttus makes strategic collaboration with Microsoft, Salesforce, and IBM, they promise customers added features that would effectively morph the current platform. The Apttus Omni that was introduced in this year’s conference intends to break the shackles of an era of incoherent and unautomated approaches. The new platform intends to distinguish themselves from its competitors and make the already game-changing service seamless to use. The omnichannel runs on numerous services. Combined with a single source of data, it’s a recipe for optimizing CPQ, CLM, Revenue Management etc.
Max- Hello, I’m AI
Apttus at Accelerate also delivered on Max; the next generation AI application. As conductor guides his fellow musicians to produce such soothing music, his absence to orchestrate any symphony would be a herculean task- Max takes the spotlight here. Max allows managers to skip hackneyed processes and solely focus on closing deals and searching prospects for their businesses. Max’s new upgrade will deliver better results without exhausting workforces, all the while respecting the vast sophistication of the modern infrastructure. Max chatbot, a buddy tool that interacts with the sales team to better secure deal is the indeed a pudding. These changes will undoubtedly make sales executive’s and decision makers’ life hassle free!
APPTUS- Hey! Blockchain
Apttus also promises that it will be integrating the Blockchain & its practices to its ecosystem. Blockchain, with the idea of decentralized platform as its bedrock, combined with Smart Contracts is soon expected to be a game changer in Contracts Management space.
Apttus affirms its interest in working with AI Max and Blockchain technology and is keen on being the forerunner of innovation in middle office software. This integration is THE factor that separates itself from the herd
