"At Alternative, our vision is to provide our valued manufacturers simple, smart tools to sell more and sell faster - no matter the channel. During the past several years, we've heard manufacturers' frustrations at the tools and approaches they've been using in order to generate customer quotations. From usability challenges stemming from complex quoting in an ERP system; to sales people unable to issue quotes while traveling; to distributors unable to accurately price their customer orders quickly; the productivity and revenue lost as a result is significant," said Vivian Keena, CEO & President of Alternative Technology Solutions.

"We listened and developed iQ to solve these exact problems and to further extend our footprint within the Salesforce ecosystem. iQ's, Quote Simple, Quote Smart approach enables companies to spend more time cultivating new business, rather than losing time and productivity with more complex legacy quoting or configuration tools," Keena added.

iQ was designed with manufacturers in mind and with speed and simplicity at its core. With robust functionality supporting complex pricing, product configuration, and social collaboration through chatter integration and workflows, iQ meets the needs of manufacturers large and small. With iQ's intuitive user interface, organizations will be up to speed quickly, spend less time generating each quote, drive business decisions based on insight into quote and order data, and be more productive.

With iQ even the most complex of quotes can be produced quickly and collaboratively while providing the necessary insight that enables organizations to react to consumer trends and drive future revenue.
