Smart CPQ Subscription Ramping

Subscription ramping helps with recurring revenue models by splitting up a subscription into different ramp periods that allow for fluid adoption cycles within the subscription time frame. This allows businesses to negotiate terms over relevant periods and deliver revenue predictability.


Self-Service Empowerment

Smart CPQ Collaborative Quoting and Self-Service Capabilities

Last release in Smart CPQ we introduced collaborative quoting that we know will revolutionize the customer experience. We’ve since simplified product exploration, enhanced usability, while remaining mobile-friendly so sellers can drive engagement and seize upsell opportunities. We want to help sellers provide their buyers with powerful self-service capabilities and a superior buying experience.

With the Spring release, Sellers can also now leverage their existing catalog configuration settings to deploy Collaborative Quoting very easily, enabling their buyers to browse the catalog browsing, add items to the quote, modify the quote, and signal acceptance of quotes. We also unveil enhanced mobile selectors and dropdown fields in Smart CPQ to optimize for smaller screens and ensure a more user-friendly experience.

Smart Price Management: New Features and Services

The Smart Price Management module introduces a revamped handling of high data volume, default pricing methods, and the addition of a comparison box plot. These features empower businesses with self-service tools and advanced analytics for better pricing management.

High data volume handling is a new configuration option in the master price list that allows for optimization for very high volumes of price records along with catalog items.


The new ability to show comparison box plots within Sales Insights allows for clearer insights into measure distributions when comparing one segment against another.

Finally, in response to valuable customer feedback, we’ve implemented a default pricing method feature that can be applied across all master price lists. This will allow customers to easily maintain uniform pricing methods and significantly improve operational efficiency across their entire organizations.

AI and Analytics

Core AI Features Unveiled

One of the highlights of this release are the core AI features, including the integration of Microsoft 365 Sales Copilot with PROS Smart CPQ.


With this integration, you can share information between Microsoft 365 apps, your CRM and PROS Smart CPQ. For example, the Outlook integration reduces time to responding to customer requests. This collaboration will streamline sales processes, boost productivity, and deliver personalized quotes more efficiently.

Gen IV AI Innovations and Enhancements

Further in the realm of AI and analytics, PROS Gen IV AI brings a new dimension to analytics with model health metrics, configuration enhancements, and improved navigational screens.


The new model health metrics allow you to navigate to the exact results that make sense for you and delve deeper into visual representations of the accuracy of predictions as well as view overall health of the model.

To ensure faster implementation we’ve improved the configurability of PROS Gen IV AI. When a price is chosen as a configuration metric, attributes can automatically be normalized to reduce the need for manual data processing.

Users can now designate different customer or product levels for pricing in Gen IV, offering similar flexibility and customization options compared to Gen III

Extensibility and Ecosystem

Enhancing Smart CPQ with Pre-Configured Products and Hyperforce Compatibility

In the spring release, Smart CPQ and PROS Subscription packages for Salesforce are now fully compatible with the Hyperforce architecture, ensuring that you can use the latest Salesforce cloud stack.


The integration of pre-configured products and compatibility with Salesforce's Hyperforce architecture streamlines product configuration processes, ensures seamless operation and business continuity within the latest cloud stack.

Smart CPQ Agreements


Enhancements in Smart CPQ Agreements enable seamless interactions with special price agreements via the partner portal. Now the same solution that's being used for direct sellers can be quickly adapted to different partner selling relationships including portals. 

Revamped Unit of Measurement Service in Smart Price Management
