Our A5 offerings (Audit, Advise, Align, Attain, Assist) span the entire software ownership lifecycle and that mindset permeates each aspect of our service delivery. We understand that most of the work happens around and outside of the implementation and we are happy to guide and assist you each step of the way.
- At A5 our CPQ team can draw on decades of CPQ Cloud experience across a wide variety of verticals. This means we will be bringing both an understanding of your industry and a broader set of experience that will allow you to learn from global best practices that don’t often get shared across industry lines. Let our experience enabling sales teams across the globe help shape how you utilize CPQ Cloud and modernize your approach to selling.
- At A5 we utilize a hybrid Agile/Waterfall methodology that allows for and anticipates the learning that often accompanies a deep dive into a CPQ implementation and sales enablement in general. This flexibility allows us to work with you to create a solution that will work for your sales team while creating a high sense of ownership within both the user and admin groups. We follow this up with a rigorous testing cycle to ensure platform accuracy and effectiveness prior to system launch. We’ve found this hybrid approach to be the most successful way to deliver quality projects and platforms to our clients – on time, on budget, and with high adoption.
