SteelBrick is an all-in-one app that ensures a more accurate quote based on key product and client information. A working Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) application can help users improve accuracy and improve productivity. Steelbrick is an application that handles the functions of prices and quotes, proposals and contracts, orders and renewals. Steelbrick is marketed to help users create a guided selling process. Steelbrick is 100% native to Salesforce.com which only means that it shares the same higher-level security and simplified interface that Salesforce.com has. Currently, SteelBrick is being developed for mobile applications built on the Salesorce 1 platform.

DocuSign

A lot of sales opportunities are lost over the complexities and requirements of having a signed document to secure the sale. DocuSign changed all that by enabling users to sign or send documents for signing. People can use any device at any time and documents signed using DocuSign are valid all around the world. DocuSign documents are compliant with U.S. ESIGN Act, U.K. Electronics Communication Act, as well as special regulations with other organizations such as FDA, IRS, and FINRA.
