End-to-end solution to create seamless selling and contracting experience for sellers and their customers in the modern enterprise
HOUSTON & BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON, May 25, 2016 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), the revenue and profit realization company, and Icertis, the leading provider of contract lifecycle management on Microsoft Azure, today announced a technology integration and go-to-market partnership that will deliver a seamless and easy-to-use lead-to-contract solution in the cloud.
The integrated solution – PROS Smart CPQ, Icertis Contract Management (ICM) platform and Microsoft Dynamics – will provide a unified experience for sales, legal and finance to manage leads, configure and price quotes, and close customer contracts.
The new offering will help enterprises compete in the modern marketplace, where simplifying the buying and selling experience is quickly becoming the new competitive playing field.

“Companies competing in today’s marketplace know firsthand that creating great customer experiences is redefining the competitive playing field,” said PROS President and CEO Andres Reiner. “Our enterprise-class customers realize they must create a personalized, frictionless customer experience for doing business across all of their channels. The Icertis relationship builds on our strategy of collaborating with partners to modernize business processes and increase business velocity. We look forward to bringing this joint solution to the Microsoft ecosystem using Dynamics and Azure to help our customers outperform.”
“The Icertis Contract Management platform helps transform contracts from plain documents to core assets for intelligent insight,” said Samir Bodas, co-founder and CEO of Icertis. “With the integrated ICM and PROS Smart CPQ solution, sales professionals will not only be able to seamlessly create contracts from quotes, it will amplify the customer experience by providing access to rich insights in existing contracting relationships.”
“The cloud is driving new technologies that provide customers with greater consistency, speed and transparency,” said Hayden Stafford, Microsoft Vice President of Worldwide Dynamics Enterprise Sales. “Together, PROS and Icertis are helping customers increase both the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations to realize more of their revenue and profit potential. These solutions maximize the return on investments of our customers’ deployments of Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Azure.
