52 percent subscription growth, 97 percent renewals as price and sales optimization becomes the “new normal” for B2B sales.
Austin, TX – February 4, 2014 – Zilliant, an optimization company that helps businesses make better pricing and sales decisions, today announced that the company achieved record-breaking growth in 2013. Zilliant’s success is accelerating because of its software-as-as-service (SaaS) model and the new Zilliant Optimization Platform, which enables industry-leading implementation times for its MarginMax and SalesMax applications to deliver better financial results to customers faster.
“Companies are beginning to recognize that to overcome the massive complexity in their businesses, they need to rely on optimization models to make sales and pricing decisions,” said Greg Peters, president and CEO of Zilliant. “As demand for sales and price optimization solutions increases, we’re staying committed to product innovation to help customers achieve stronger financial results at a faster rate.”
With the launch of MarginMax 8.0 on the new Zilliant Optimization Platform, Zilliant can deliver market-aligned prices to customers in less than 90 days. Zilliant is now the only company offering a “true SaaS,” multi-tenant B2B optimization platform in the marketplace.

“Optimization models are the only way to answer key questions such as which products and markets offer the greatest growth potential, where pricing and strategy are misaligned, and how to manage cost volatility and capacity allocation,” Peters said. “But the real gains come from transforming these insights into actionable guidance for front-line sales and marketing decision makers, which is where Zilliant excels.”
