Dallas, Texas – May 14, 2013 – Endeavor, a leading CPQ (Configure Price Quote) publisher based in Dallas, and the only CPQ provider integrated with the market leading SugarCRM platform, today announced it received the “Top Dog” award from SugarCRM last month.  Endeavor was presented the award in New York at SugarCon, SugarCRM’s annual customer and partner conference. The “Top Dog” is awarded each year to the technology partner that helps SugarCRM win more in the market place.  Endeavor was selected because of EndeavorCPQ’s role in helping SugarCRM win its largest opportunity in 2012.

“We started our week off with a bang at SugarCon, winning the “Top Dog” award” said Sean Myers, co-Founder and CEO of Endeavor.  “Then we capped the conference off with a win in the “App Throw-down” competition with a funny CPQ demonstration incorporating Zombies.  In between there was good business closed and great relationships started.  SugarCon 2013 was a huge success for Endeavor.”

In addition to being a sponsor, Endeavor exhibited at SugarCon and was involved in numerous breakout sessions including the “App Throw-down” which closes out the conference each year.  Endeavor also sponsored a Cloud Collaboration session with Box.com.  The companies highlighted a paperless quote to order use case utilizing EndeavorCPQ as the quote and contract generation source, Box.com for quote to order distribution and collaboration, and SugarCRM as the customer information platform.

Dallas, Texas – April 4, 2013 – Endeavor, a leading CPQ (Configure Price Quote) publisher based in Dallas, and the only CPQ provider integrated with the market leading SugarCRM platform, today announced its sponsorship of SugarCon in New York next week.  SugarCon is SugarCRM’s annual customer and partner conference and this year it is hosted at the Waldorf Astoria in mid-town Manhattan.   In addition to being a sponsor, Endeavor will exhibit and is involved in numerous breakout sessions including the always anticipated “App Throwdown” which is the last event on the main stage.

“SugarCon will be a great place for us to highlight the CPQ opportunity that SugarCRM customers now have with Endeavor” said Sean Myers, co-Founder and CEO of Endeavor.  “We have a great surprise for the App Throwdown presentation, and we also are sitting on a panel with Box.com discussing the opportunities with Cloud Collaboration around the quote to order process.  We look forward to advancing our partnership with Sugar and we anticipate meeting many of our future service partners and CPQ customers at the show.”

Endeavor will be exhibiting in booth 108.  Attendees will be able to register to win an iPad Mini and they will also be treated to a free chair massage sponsored by Massage Envy.  Endeavor will also be giving away a 6 month subscription to Massage Envy through a Sugar sponsored event at the show.  “One of the biggest values that EndeavorCPQ gives to the sales people is more time.” said Vince Puente, Sales Director at Endeavor.  “Our customers tell us all the time that before they started using our CPQ system, it would take 1-4 hours on average to get a quote out the door.  With EndeavorCPQ, it only takes 5 minutes now, and they are assured of its accuracy.  In today’s hustle and bustle world, we wanted to highlight this time benefit, and nothing does that better than a massage.”

Coverall Goes Live With Endeavor CPQ

Franchising Company Upgrades Sales Tools with Endeavor CPQ

DALLAS - Endeavor, a company focused on helping its customers sell more of their products and services, is proud to announce today another successful deployment of its CPQ (Configure Price Quote) System with Coverall North America, Inc.

Coverall is one of the largest franchisors of commercial cleaning businesses in the world.  The company achieved its market recognition by creating the innovative, patent-pending Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System® Program that is used by its Franchise Owners to help improve cleanliness, health and wellness in their customers’ work environments.

Early in 2012, Coverall reviewed its bidding and proposal process.  The Coverall® Program consists of various service tasks that can be customized based on the unique cleaning requirements of each facility type and the expectations of each customer. Developing a price quote can be a complicated process when all possible bundling and packaging relationships are considered. In order to provide the most efficient support for its Franchise Owners, consistency is a must.

"It’s important that our brand message is clear and strong,” said Diane Emo, VP of Marketing at Coverall. "Endeavor’s CPQ System allows us to gain more consistency through a better process – while easing our Sales Team’s administrative burden."

Last summer, Coverall began evaluating various proposal systems and was introduced by Endeavor Partner SyncSite (www.syncsite.net) to the Endeavor's CPQ system. "We were initially looking for a proposal output tool that integrated with Sage SalesLogix,” said Ryan Nacht, Sales and Marketing Operations Manager at Coverall. "What we saw in the SmartCatalog demo went beyond our expectations.”

Just in time for the holidays, Coverall completed final testing of the SmartCatalog CPQ system and launched to its Sales Team.  Now, Coverall has greater confidence in the consistency and management of the proposal process, and its Sales Team is better equipped to create customer-ready bids even more professionally and efficiently.

About Endeavor

Endeavor is a CPQ (Configure Price Quote) provider.  Founded in 2000, Endeavor publishes the Guided Selling Engine that makes the quoting process very fast, easy and 100% accurate.  Endeavor integrates with leading CRM, ERP and eCommerce systems to ensure the quote to order process is fully automated.  Endeavor helps its customers sell more stuff by making the complex sale simple through improved quote to order automation.  To learn more about Endeavor, check out the video on our home page at www.endeavorcpq.com.

About Coverall

Coverall began in 1985 focused on helping Coverall Franchise Owners succeed as business owners in the commercial cleaning industry. In 2008, the company launched the Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System® Program with an emphasis on helping to improve cleanliness, health and wellness in work environments. This unique, patent-pending Coverall® Program combines innovative cleaning technologies and tools, hospital-grade disinfectants, professional training programs, customer support and communication, and a passion for healthy cleaning to do one thing: remove the maximum amount of dirt and germs as efficiently as possible. Today the Coverall Program is the first choice of offices, healthcare facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, schools, daycares, retail businesses, restaurants, manufacturing plants, auto dealerships, religious centers, fitness facilities and other businesses worldwide.
