We just launched the latest version of our Next Generation Configure Price Quote app: Salesforce CPQ Summer 17. This release includes new features for theming and integrating CPQ with your Customer Community. We've also developed a more detailed lookup field search process for standard and custom Visualforce pages in CPQ Performance Experience.


Your sales reps can close deals and renew subscriptions with speed and accuracy while providing an easier management process for your admins. Interested in learning more? View our release articles below:

Partner Communities

Feature Summary Admin Setup
CPQ for Lightning Communities

CPQ for Self-Service is a new way for our customers to connect with their own customers. Our clients can now extend the full power of CPQ functionality to a Customer Community, allowing their customers to self-service when they need to add-on products or licenses to an existing Contract or create a new Quote.   


We’ve enhanced Partner Communities to support this effort by extending our Theming Engine, allowing for different types of fieldsets to be used, and having the option to prevent users from creating new quotes from an amendment or add-on workflow.
