How Simplus Helped

Simplus worked with School Specialty to develop a price list engine that serves up the right pricing to the right customers at the right time. Through a Salesforce CPQ Implementation, School Specialty now has efficient quoting and bidding functionality across the country. School Specialty’s commerce site works with the price list engine so that all pricing is being authored through the CPQ bid module. In addition, School Specialty’s IT planning and requirements are now very mature thanks to the consulting guidance of Simplus. School Specialty is thrilled with the results gained with Simplus.
