- What is Intelligent Quoting?
Intelligent Quoting is the core of the Apparound app. It combines content and quoting together. Provide your team with digital catalogues, presentations and videos. Build quotes collaboratively with customers; automatic pricing, discounts and quotes by email to customers.
- Is Apparound a CRM platform?
There are many terms used such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management), Sales Automation or Quote to Cash.
What we find is that all of these tools are very data intensive and much more suited to the back office. Our focus is about helping companies with sales productivity. That is why we provide an all-in-one app that helps sellers sell. The data is collected automatically in the background so that sellers can focus on what they do best, which is talking with customers.
- Do you offer Configure Price Quote (CPQ)?
Yes, CPQ is part of our core product Intelligent Quoting.
CPQ stands for Configure Price Quote. We believe that CPQ must be part of the sales process and be visible to customers, and not just be a back office tool. That is why we’ve built it into our Intelligent Quoting product. What we find is that customers are much more likely to buy if they collaboratively build a quote with you.
- What is the difference between the Admin Portal and the Customer Subscription Portal?
The Admin Portal is the way to set up Apparound for your users, such as creating users, uploading content, for pricing and much more.
The Customer Subscription Portal is for managing your licences and payments.
We are working to combine both these functions into one portal.
- Can I increase the number of users?
- Can I decrease the number of users?
Yes, you can decrease the number of users to a minimum of 10 users. To decrease the number of users, please contact us.
- Why do you have a minimum number of users?
The minimum number of users is 10 users. This is because Apparound is a sales collaboration app. What we find is that it is not only sellers who benefit from using Apparound – marketing, product, management and customer support also benefit (at Apparound, our entire company uses the Apparound product).
- How do I buy additional modules?
You can select the Essential, Professional or Elite edition.
The Essential edition includes the modules Intelligent Quoting and Sales Tracker. The Professional edition includes Contract Generator and Electronic Signature, and everything from Essential. The Elite edition includes Knowledge Manager and Solution Advisor, and everything from Professional. The Web Client is optional on every edition.
- How can I automate processes connecting Apparound with other apps?
You can connect Apparound with 1000+ apps in a few easy steps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration. Thanks to Zapier you can connect apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time.
Automation is based on events: when something happens in one app, an action is triggered in another. In this way you can sync your apps with Apparound and vice versa.
