Letter from Aleksandar Ivanovic, President & CEO

Alex Ivanovic, President & CEO

Wow! 3 new releases in 3 months. Not bad.

We are just getting started! Each month we are going to release several new features and improvements, which will automatically be available to ALL of our customers. You will only have to turn them on, or in some cases that will even be done automatically.

Some new features will make it SIMPLER for administrators to maintain products, set up rules, and define processes. Other new features will make it FASTER for users to get their quotes and proposals out the door. This continuous innovation will make it CHEAPER to run and operate WebSource CPQ.

Not only are we dedicated to making our product Simpler, Faster, Cheaper to use, we are also increasing our transparency. While anybody can evaluate our software through a free trial, even our competitors, now our customers are able to see everything we are working on when it comes to upcoming new features. We have opened up our internal development process to allow our customers to preview, collaborate and influence new features, as they are being developed.


So let's collectively continue to make our products Simpler, Faster, Cheaper, Better.




Webcom Announces the Release of WebSource CPQ v10

  Click here for the release notes for version 10 and all of the details on this new release!

What is New in Version 10?
  • Collaboration Enhancements: In this release, Webcom's flagship products have been integrated. We introduced collaboration in v9 and now it has been taken to a new level with CallidusCloud WorkFlow integration. Do your sales people have questions they need expert help with? Does your services group need to provide an estimate for your quote? These cases can all be handled effortlessly with this new release.
  • Local Administration: With CPQ v10, you have the ability to create local administrators who can manage their own users, templates and custom tables. If you have offices across the world, this makes it easy for them to maintain their own data. It is also simple for distributors, resellers and affiliates to manage their own information.
  • Product Maintenance Through API: Instead of having to update your simple products with Excel worksheets, you now have the ability to streamline product updates with the APIs you have in place.
  • Permission Groups: Do you handle multiple brands and multiple countries? With v10, it is easy to set different permission groups for user types, companies and markets.
  • Document Template Preview and Selection: Now you can preview any of your templates then select whether the document will be created as a Microsoft Word document or a PDF.

These and more great features can be found when CPQ v10 is officially released on October 9th, 2010. Webcom continues to lead the sales automation software industry with customer centric, agile and responsive development.
