ANNAPOLIS, Md. -September 29, 2016 - SpringCM, a leading document and sales contract management solution for Salesforce customers, today named Buan Consulting as its first Gold Certified SpringCM Partner for Systems Integrators. Buan Consulting, also the first SteelBrick (renamed to Salesforce CPQ) Certified Implementation Partner and a Salesforce Silver Cloud Alliance Partner, also announced the kick-off of its SpringCM QuickStart service offering to provide small or medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with a base contract management system.

In January, Buan Consulting became a strategic partner with SpringCM to provide a full, one-stop-shop contract management solution for SteelBrick customers.

By partnering with the leading CPQ (configure, price, quote) and CLM (contract lifecycle management) solution providers – SteelBrick and SpringCM – Buan Consulting is the only certified partner to handle end-to-end contract lifecycle management and CPQ, ensuring users are up and running smoothly and to help accelerate sales. Buan Consulting has the most certified SteelBrick consultants and most successfully completed CPQ implementations of any partner.

“We are delighted to have Buan Consulting become a Gold Certified SpringCM Partner,” said Mitch Gouss, Director of Business Development at SpringCM. “Buan Consulting will help SpringCM help its customers deploy faster and get it right the first time,” he said.

While it is a great fit for the SMB/mid-market, the enterprise will seek a more tailored and expansive services engraftment to fully meet their needs.
