"We chose BigMachines over other CPQ solutions because of their professionalism and their approach. They really got to understand our business, and everyone we met and talked to from BigMachines clearly understood what our business issues were and how they were going to solve them," said Jan Heiremans, COO, StepStone. "It made us confident that BigMachines could handle everything they said they could, and would provide the best solution for us."

"When you sell Media Services, you're really selling the intellectual capital embodied by your employees," said Tom Padgett, SVP WW Sales & Alliances, BigMachines.
