The go-to-market agreement accelerates mass market adoption of true end-to-end digital selling technology and strategies so that companies can achieve more consistent revenue streams, greater customer engagement and sustained business resiliency.

As businesses continue to adopt digital sales technologies to help them compete in today’s rapidly changing environment, Gartner predicts that 75% of B2B sales organizations will augment their traditional playbooks with AI-guided selling solutions by 2025[1].

“B2B businesses have accepted the fact that they must continue to extend digital selling technology investments if they are to engage customers how, when and where they want to engage and meet tomorrow’s business challenges,” said John Connolly Jr., PROS Global Vice President, Alliances and Partners. “By working with Microsoft to fuel the adoption of Microsoft Dynamics 365 through proven CPQ and price optimization capabilities, we will not only deliver the most comprehensive and seamless solution to market, but deliver the technology sales teams rely upon to optimize their time and best engage customers so they can achieve more profitable sales growth.”

Additionally, PROS will also address next-generation digital selling use cases defined by Microsoft Industry Solutions, including the latest vertical cloud, Microsoft Cloud for Manufacturing.
