International Software Awards Program Announces Finalists. Quali’s CloudShell Platform Shortens Sales Cycles for Technology Products
SANTA CLARA and AUSTIN – July 30, 2019 – Quali, the leading provider of cloud-agnostic Environment as a Service (EaaS) solutions that help organizations create self-service environments on-demand, today was named a finalist in the 2019 SaaS Awards Program in the category for Best SaaS Product for Sales and Marketing.
The SaaS Awards program is now in its fourth year of celebrating organizational successes and the software innovations that fuel them. With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA, and UK.
Sales demo environments often take days, weeks, or even months to reserve, set-up, and tear-down properly. Increased workloads and complex environments threaten sales quotas and the business’ bottom line. CloudShell Pro accelerates and simplifies environment provisioning by enabling teams to create self-service, on-demand replicas of full-stack infrastructure environments for hybrid cloud configurations in just one click.
“The stakes are high for customers of technology OEMs and ISVs. Customers need to feel comfortable that the proposed hardware or software solution will work as advertised in their environment, but that entire pre-sales evaluation set-up takes way too long—and time kills deals. So, I’m thrilled that we are helping our customers cut several months out of their sales cycles,” said Michael Vollman, Chief Revenue Officer.
SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said, “The standard of entries this year was incredibly high, with consistent attention to innovation and most importantly, customer success. The volume of entries warranting consideration of a place on the coveted shortlist was unprecedented.” Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 27 and the program will return in Spring 2020. Over 400 organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe, and the Middle East. To view the full shortlist, please visit:
