NIRVAHA delivers ‘quote-to-cash’ solution
First Software as a Service to automate the quote-to-cash business process for small and medium size businesses
SEATTLE – August 27, 2008 PRNewswire -- Nirvaha Inc., an innovating provider of on-demand solutions to automate the ‘quote-to-cash’ process for small and mid-size businesses, announced today the release of Nirvaha Q2C®. Nirvaha Q2C bridges the technology gap between CRM and accounting systems for companies that manage five or more customer deals per month. Today, most small and midsize businesses fill this gap by manually inputting, editing and managing data through spreadsheets, email and/or word documents. Nirvaha Q2C streamlines the entire quote-to-cash process, eliminating manual work-arounds and the associated frustrations. As a result, Nirvaha Q2C delivers a seamless, reliable and cost-effective solution for:
- Customer quote creation and contract management processes;
- Billing schedule tracking, product & project deliverables, contract renewal
schedules, etc.; and,
- The calculation and reporting of sales commissions.
According to Ramesh Parameswaran, CEO & founder of Nirvaha, “Small and medium
businesses now have access to a reliable, proven and low cost system to manage and
quality control their business revenues – starting with sales all the way through
to cash or sales commissions. This is a truly valuable proposition for small and
midsize businesses, saving them time, money and personnel resources.”
Tom Varga, managing partner of CFO Selections commented, “Nirvaha is the Salesforce.com™ for CFOs.” Additionally, current customer mPoria Inc.’s CEO and co-founder says, "The easy-to-use interface, comprehensive features and flexible configurability of Nirvaha Q2C easily enabled us to map the system to our business processes. Q2c has helped us to streamline critical work processes spanning disparate teams, which in turn is saving us time, resources and money. Nirvaha adds significant value to our business."

Nirvaha Q2C is easy-to-use and requires little employee training time. Employees can be fully operational on the system in less than 1 day and get started by accessing the system through a simple UI where they create and negotiate quotes and contracts using a library of templates and contract clauses. The Nirvaha Q2C service automatically captures details from signed contracts to automate and track customer deliverables, billings and sales commissions and members can access company dashboards to view, manage and control the planned and actual status of all customer contract commitments and sales commissions.
