Webcom to Automate the Quote-to-Order Process at Permabit

Gives Permabit Channel Partners Streamlined Tools to Quickly Capitalize on Market Opportunities        

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 8, 2007 – Webcom, Inc., a leader in simplified quote-to-order enablement for the selling of complex products and services, is pleased to announce that Permabit, Inc. is deploying WebSource CPQ to simplify its quote-to-order process. Permabit is a leading provider of compliance, archive and tiered storage solutions that enable organizations to retain, retrieve, preserve and secure business critical information for any length of time. Permabit solutions store and secure all forms of information while reducing storage costs through enhanced storage efficiency and performance.

“We needed to find a quote and ordering solution that would support a go-to-market model that emphasizes channel partners,” said Dan Trepanier, Permabit Director of Sales. ”WebSource CPQ will give our channel partners direct access to the same tools used by Permabit’s own Territory Managers, dramatically enhancing our partners’ ability to win business. The solution will also integrate with our CRM system, providing Permabit with new comprehensive views of its business,” added Trepanier.


WebSource CPQ is designed to help drive increased revenues and margins, increased customer satisfaction, reduced costs and improved productivity. Requiring nothing more than a web browser, WebSource CPQ will allow Permabit channel partners to easily and skillfully configure, price, quote and propose solutions, significantly reducing the quotation turnaround time in an error-free manner.


“Enabling channel partners can be a difficult and time-consuming task,” said Chris Lesar, Webcom Executive Vice President. “The flexibility of WebSource CPQ to accommodate complex selling and distribution models is of particular benefit to companies, like Permabit, in the technology sector,” added Lesar.
