"To best serve our 2000+ clients, we will continue to acquire top-notch companies, hire exceptional talent, and expand our Salesforce services from campaign to cash. We believe the acquisition of CRM Manager will help us accomplish our goals."
"I am thrilled to be part of the Simplus Team," said Andy Atkins, CEO of CRM Manager. "As a Salesforce Partner, I wanted to make sure that our more than 1,000 clients will receive an additional benefit from our strategic decision to be acquired. Simplus offers not only that same level of customer quality but also particular expertise in the quote-to-cash space."
