PROS Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
HOUSTON, October 27, 2021 - PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a provider of SaaS solutions optimizing shopping and selling experiences, today announced that it has been recognized as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) Application Suites.
PROS believes its Leader positioning is a result of the company's clear product vision for the PROS Platform as well as deep and broad CPQ capabilities that are proven at enterprise scale, making it the most strategic vendor in the market today.
