About Us – LaunchpadQ2C

It's our mission to align your technology with your business goals.

Software systems should make your job easier by automating business processes.  But do you find yourself creating work-arounds for Quote-to-cash processes when your software doesn’t deliver the way you need it to? The natural evolution of business, poorly designed system integrations, or a purposeful shift in your business model are just some of the reasons that your Quote-to-cash systems can be misaligned with your business processes and goals. A poorly designed system can make retaining happy employees, accomplishing your goals, and scaling your business a lot harder.

LaunchpadQ2C, the leading Quote-to-cash optimization company, was founded to help companies like yours address and fix these pain points. We combine our understanding and expertise to work with and design technology solutions that will help you meet your business goals in sales, operations, deal desk and order management, service delivery, billing and payment operations, revenue management and finance departments. Whether you need a few simple configurations to allow your pre-existing systems to completely fulfill your needs, or a comprehensive overhaul, we have the experience to configure, integrate and personally tailor a solution to your requirements. Our roots in Accenture, Salesforce and Zuora allow us to become a seamless extension of your IT team, optimizing and delivering system solutions to perfectly meet the needs of your cross-functional teams.

Quote to Cash Expert Launches Optimization Consultancy LaunchpadQ2C

Former Salesforce and Zuora engineer founds optimization firm LaunchpadQ2C to help clients outsource a wide range of quote to cash services.

June 4, 2018

Many companies try their best to optimize their internal processes and streamline business operations to stay competitive in the ever-changing IT business landscape. But what if there was a way for companies to outsource this optimization service, and be able to focus instead on their business at hand?  Now thanks to the revolutionary new company LaunchpadQ2C there is.  In exciting news for both young and older businesses, LaunchpadQ2C recently announced that they will be offering the world’s first and only “Optimization as a Service” – a completely managed service focused on optimizing customer’s “Quote to Cash” processes, an area where its founder Aaron Somer, an alum of Accenture, Salesforce, and Zuora, and, most recently, Global Director of PreSales at Zuora, has won consistent praise.  Their primary goal:  helping companies get their technology in line with achieving their business goals both large and small.

“Along the way, we’ve helped hundreds of companies optimize,” commented Somer.  “New business models require new capabilities and, while modern software as a service offers unprecedented agility, significant value is generated through assessment and optimization. Selecting the right combination of systems for your business is paramount. Selection of the wrong combination frequently leads to failed implementation projects, lost investment, and delayed time to market.” Some of Launchpad’s most notable clients include Box, Pivotal, and Urban Airship.

According to LaunchpadQ2C, in their young history, they have quickly established themselves as the leading, vendor-agnostic consultancy offering quote and order to cash assessments, high-performance platform architecture, and top-level custom design/build services with Salesforce Certified Platform Development. This set of optimization services, either individually or combined can help give a business a clear advantage over having to run some of these operations alone, freeing time and energy to focus on other needed areas where they themselves specialize.

LaunchpadQ2C also helps companies optimize their Q2C systems through their suite of customized applications which allow users to create tailored CPQ solutions, improve finance collections, create customer statements, streamline order catalogs and add-on features including self-service quoting, advanced order management and advanced order management.
