quote&CLOSE from 5 fifteen launches at WPE 2014

  • quote&CLOSE, the premium digital and print quotation solution for Salesforce.com

October 13th, 2014 - 5 fifteen, a leading UK software company supplying publishers throughout the world, today launches quote&CLOSE. Flexible, scalable and in an enterprise-ready configuration, quote&CLOSE provides a pricing, rating and quotation solution for media companies with complex products across pure-play digital, print only or a combination of both channels.

"quote&CLOSE delivers company-wide, consistent and accurate rating for all your sales reps, or direct to Salesforce users anywhere, anytime on any mobile device," states Sarah Jackson, Product Manager 5 fifteen Ltd., "Delivered as a subscription service, quote&CLOSE will significantly improve any quote to cash cycle."

Visitors to World Publishing Expo 2014 can see the software demonstrated on 5 fifteen's stand, 9.620 at the Amsterdam RAI from 13-15th October.

With simple configuration and an easy-to-use Microsoft Excel based rating structure, quote&CLOSE can process thousands of rate card calculations per second. Multiple users can access the same rate card at the same time without difficulty. Rate cards can be simple or complex, drawing on data from multiple inputs and using conditions to derive the correct rate. Single sheets or multiple sheets can be used for clarity. Rate cards can also be modelled using customised terminology or calculation strategies, including combining data for a single rate, or analysing parts of the rate separately and using discounts and surcharges to reach a final price.

Built on the Microsoft Azure platform, quote&CLOSE is provided with a 99.95% compute SLA and enables highly available applications to be built and run without focusing on the infrastructure.

"quote&CLOSE is built on over 25 years experience of the media industry, and delivers cloud-based ratings direct to Salesforce users," says Jackson, concluding, "quote&CLOSE lead and contact information is always fresh, quotations are always accurate and closing is always quick."
