WALLDORF — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced it has been named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) Application Suites.*
CPQ application suites “enable sales organizations to streamline and optimize the creation of quotes and orders for complex, configurable products and services.” SAP has been named a Leader due to its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
This CPQ offering from SAP, along with sales force automation and sales performance management solutions from SAP, is part of the SAP Sales Cloud portfolio.
