Kugamon versus Conga CPQ

The Difference is the Design. Seeing is Believing.

Lack of Deep Salesforce Integration

  • Conga CPQ is a rebrand of Apttus Quote to Cash, which was architected to work independently of Salesforce Sales and Service Cloud offerings.
  • Conga CPQ does not use Salesforce Product and Price Book functions, but rather has its own Product and Price Book capabilities
  • Conga CPQ does not integrate with Salesforce Opportunity Products and thus Pipeline Forecasting in Salesforce is impacted
  • Customers must create and maintain separate Product and Price books in Salesforce and Conga CPQ
  • Kugamon has been architected to seamlessly integrate and extend Salesforce Sales and Salesforce Service Cloud offerings.
  • Kugamon uses Salesforce Product and Price Book functions for a tighter Salesforce integration
  • Kugamon enhances Salesforce Pipeline Forecasting functionality with Real-Time updates, Complex Subscription Metrics, and much more

CPQ Not a Priority (Former Apttus Q2C)

  • Since the purchase of Conga by Apttus, and the subsequent re-branding of Apttus to Conga, the company's focus has been on Contract Lifecyle Management and Document Generation
  • Conga CPQ has not received any significant updates since the purchase and has not been optimized for Salesforce Lightning platform
  • Kugamon is dedicated to the Revenue Operations segment
  • Since our founding in 2009, Kugamon has continuously improved our solutions with a predictable upgrade cadence
  • We are averaging a Product Release at least once per month

Built for the Enterprise, Not Small and Medium Businesses

  • Conga CPQ is a very capabie solution for Businesses with Salesforce Developers on Staff
  • Conga CPQ is designed for Customers who do not use Salesforce Sales Cloud or Service Cloud offerings, meaning Customers who do not manage their Pipeline in Salesforce
  • Kugamon is designed for Customers to Self-Implement and Administer
  • This is accomplished by it's intuitive design and thoughtful application behavior, where Administrators and Users can easily understand Kugamon
  • Salesforce Consulting Partners not required to implement nor customize Kugamon

High Cost of Ownership

  • Conga Implementation Costs are typically 2X to 3X the License Cost
  • Due to the nature of custom Implementations, updates and changes require re-engagement with outside Consulting Partners and Developers
  • Kugamon Implementation Costs are typically 1/4th to 1/3rd the License Cost
  • Due to the intuitive design and thoughtful application behavior, Administrators and Developers easily understand Kugamon
  • Kugamon Package Manager makes upgrades straightforward and a pain-free process
  • Salesforce Consulting Partners are not required to implement nor customize Kugamon
