MaintenanceNet, Inc.'s Quote-to-Order Module Drives Faster, More Efficient Service Sales for Technology Supply Chain

Dynamic SaaS Tool Reduces Time to Close for Channel Partners, Allows Resellers to Generate Quotes and Orders in Minutes

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - MaintenanceNet, Inc., the leading provider of warranty and contract management services, is helping distributors and their reseller customers drive faster, more efficient service sales through use of a new Quote-to-Order module that is now available as part of the MaintenanceNet software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for full-lifecycle service contract management.

Rolled out to select MaintenanceNet customers earlier this year, the Quote-to-Order module is designed to help technology manufacturers, along with their channel partners and end customers, identify the right services for their products, while also facilitating and expediting quoting and ordering processes. It works by streamlining traditional, labor-intensive approaches to service sales, allowing resellers to focus their efforts on helping customers faster and more effectively.

MaintenanceNet recently deployed the Quote-to-Order module for a large global distributor with a goal of improving service revenues across Europe for a leading technology vendor.

"Within just a few months, the volume of quotes and orders dramatically increased, with the Quote-to-Order platform generating more than 7,000 quotes and facilitating more than 3,100 total closed orders for the distributor's resellers," said Scott Herron, president and CEO of MaintenanceNet. "We're pleased that it had an immediate impact, including driving significant service revenue increases, and we're confident that it can produce the same results for other MaintenanceNet customers as well."

Dynamic in design, the MaintenanceNet Quote-to-Order module is updated on an ongoing basis with the most current pricing and service data that sales teams need to be completely informed for their customers. It offers an easy-to-use shopping cart approach to service quoting and ordering. In addition, it provides automated reminders to ensure that resellers follow-up on open quotes -- a feature that has played a large role in not only improving order close ratios, but also in reducing the amount of time required to close sales.

"With our channel-friendly service contract management platforms, which are available 24/7, sales teams have everything they require to succeed at service sales," said Herron. "Simply put, MaintenanceNet places sales teams in a position to gain complete control of the overall service quoting and ordering process, and we make it fast and painless for them."

MaintenanceNet's Quote-to-Order module is priced according to the scope of data integration services required for implementation. It is available with language and currency converter support for multi-national installations.
