Evin was a pleasure to work with always prompt, polite, knowledgeable, great strategist. I was not here early on so I do not know about the upfront negotiations and what some of the requirements initially created. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Felt at times we were being strung along to get more pay, Some of the negotiations on the amount of time and cost were not what we requested and were pushed to maximize the ATG dollars. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

ATG Consulting Overview

What is ATG Consulting?

Using years of domain expertise and a refined set of delivery accelerators, ATG brings contemporary solutions to the way clients transform and manage their customer and revenue technology platforms. Implementing CRM, Quoting, and Billing systems are the core of what we do at ATG. We are in a unique position as a recognized global thought leader in Quote-to-Cash, with the #1 implementation position with three leading providers of cloud or platform-based CPQ and Billing Solutions, providing unique and differentiated value to our clients, our ISV partners, and our GSI partners. ATG has always had a passion for developing reusable content to accelerate successful outcomes for our clients and fuel the growth of our business. With the emergence of the Solution Center approach, the need for training, tools, and methodology was enhanced. ATG now benefits from seven years of dedicated focus on building proprietary tools and intellectual property (IP) to support our reputation as a Q2C thought leader and premium implementation partner. The cornerstone of our IP is our Atlas Framework™, which is a suite of implementation methodology, training, and tools that reliably enables on-time and on-budget delivery of cloud-based CPQ and Billing Solutions. ATG has leveraged the Atlas Framework™ to enable 15 production Go-Lives in a recent 90-day period.

As a Salesforce Platinum Partner, we see that the Salesforce CPQ and Billing spaces are exploding globally. There are thousands of B2B companies that leverage heavily customized Quote objects on their Salesforce platform. Moving to a robust, out-of-the-box solution, will greatly streamline their process and reduce their overall costs of ownership. ATG sees Salesforce owning the lion’s share of CPQ projects in nearly every industry segment we serve, from Large Enterprise to Commercial. With the emergence of Salesforce Billing, we are forecasting a tremendous volume of Salesforce CPQ projects over the next several years. Visit atginfo.com for more details.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Steelbrick (Salesforce Quote to Cash) implementation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ATG team was incredibly responsive in spite of travel schedules and time-zone differences. Their knowledge was second-to-none. During our implementation (early 2016), SteelBrick was acquired by Salesforce. This caused some potential for disruption on the ATG side. Never happened. They were amazingly reliable and never let us down. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't have changed a single thing. They were a genuine pleasure to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

You cannot go wrong working with this stellar group of knowledgeable professionals. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Previous to this implementation, our sales and billing processes were less than optimal. Data being added to Salesforce was sporadic at best. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

ATG helped us transition from a home-grown in-house billing system to a third-party provider. We had to rethink and redesign our order-to-cash process, as well as re-engineer our data input systems. ATG assisted us from project kickoff to go-live, and has provided post-implementation support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The people were the best part. ATG's staff were friendly and knowledgable. We felt like we were teammates and partners with them from day one. There was never a point where we felt we weren't in the hands of a top tier service provider. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although we were able to manage with video conferencing and instant messaging, ATG is located out-of-state. The distance between us meant we didn't always have them handy if we needed them on-site, and on-site visits had to be planned ahead of time. Additionally there were travel costs associated with on-site visits. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Use ATG! There is no way we would have gone live with our project without their assistance. They were honest domain experts who partnered with us every step of the way.

(to be clear, project and budget overruns were not ATG's fault. They were efficient and worked within given timeframes. Through no fault of their own we had system bugs and an understaffed project team) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We worked with ATG to switch from our current payment processor for one of our products to Chase using Aria as the pass through. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We worked with Mitch Colyer and Samuel Mandell at ATG who were great to work with. They are very knowledgeable and delivered tasks on time. They are easy to contact with any issues we may experience and are very helpful. I would definitely recommend ATG to others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that we disliked working with ATG. Any issues we experienced were directly with Aria and if anything ATG helped resolve those issues or offered a solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

I would recommend ATG's services to others. Very professional and knowledgeable consultants who are great to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

ATG has been helping us implement SFDC Billing as part of a larger project. This has involved them working alongside other vendors while owning this portion of our implmentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The thoroughness and professionalism that ATG has brought in their approach has been wonderful. We have multiple projects occurring alongside everyone's regular day job, so ATG's ability to guide the process and make sure all the points are hit has lifted a burden from my team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, nothing stands out. The worst thing so far is that their attention to detail has resulted in me being constantly pushed to stay on top of things. But that's probably a good thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

ATG came to the rescue with knowledgeable SFDC Quote to Cash resources on a CPQ implementation. ATG subcontracted to the Appirio who was acting as the prime SI for the project. ATC provided the SME's and the project management resources required to get the job done on time with the client. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ATG resources were dedicated to doing what it took to get the job done during during a challenging implementation. The ATG resources were always there to explore possible options and workarounds to make the project a success. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We had to keep changing some of the ATG resources out over the course of the 2 year project (which I should add is probably to be expected). ATG worked with us to make those transitions as seamless as possible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We were implementing Salesforce CPQ. We needed a technical expert to analyze our goals and environment to quickly and accurately implement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The end result of our business objective. Also the design phase was painless with their provided templates and discovery. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

ATG helped us design and implement our Salesforce CPQ (Steelbrick) to meet our business needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ATG was a true partner. We needed to keep the scope of the project limited and they knew that upfront. There was no attempt to on their part to expand the scope or drag out the project. They were accommodating of our change requests and were very professional at keeping us aware of the hours remaining on the project and helping us to balance the changes that we wanted with our targeted budget. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We knew and expected a change in the development (technical) resource after the initial scoping and design would happen. However, as the project progressed, getting access to that original resource to understand some of the initial configurations took a little longer than we would have liked. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

We had a unique budgetary need that was not normal for a project like this. It required a high level of trust and partnership that rarely works in this industry. I assumed we'd clash multiple times during the project and that the experience wouldn't be very pleasant. I couldn't have been more wrong. An amazing engagement. ATG truly puts the customer first!

ATG is critical to PolSource's success at delivering quote to cash projects globally. Together, we deliver Quote to Cash projects for Salesforce across US and EMEA.

ATG is helping us to implement salesforce CPQ. It is quote tool which will replace our homegrown custom tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

ATG helped us implement Salesforce CPQ as part of a larger systems implementation project involving NetSuite & Salesforce. They handled a significant amount of custom requirements originating from our complex contracting arrangements with our largely government client base & extensive resellers. They accepted many late requirements and managed to configure them quickly with little impact to the overall project timeline and budget. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ATG's flexibility in accepting late changes and finding a way to accommodate them within the plan. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The level of custom configuration required within Saleforce CPQ and the resulting complexity in creating quotes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Spend more time up front confirming requirements and ensuring they understand the needs of your business and the required outputs from CPQ before you begin the implementation phase in earnest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Expertise with Salesforce CPQ & Billing, Collaboration, hard work to get the job done and meet business needs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Timelines have sometimes extended past when they should due to availability of resources. In part due to the rapid changes with Steelbrick CPQ & Billing after the acquisition by Salesforce making it difficult to ramp up new resources quickly.

At Concur, we've embarked on multiple transformations, and ATG have been our strong counselors, consultants, implementers, and our trusted partners (as well as perhaps therapists in some cases) throughout our transformations. We simply could not have achieved the success and growth without them. We've used all of their services, and they bring a wealth of experience in the process and technology space, a bias towards thoughtful action, and understand the landscape as well as any consulting group. Given their focus on Q2C, they have the team and depth that helped shape and execute on our transformation.

What do you dislike?

They are growing quickly, and while their foundation is very strong, expect many new faces as they continue to ramp and scale. They are also just expanding globally, so if you expect accenture type levels of global talent, that is not their space (yet). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
