Quirk brings 25+ years of C-Level leadership experience, including Emptoris (an IBM Company), Achievers, Oracle and PeopleSoft, to the Pramata board
BRISBANE, CA – May 3, 2016. Pramata, the Customer Relationship Intelligence (CRI) company, today announced that Patrick D. Quirk has joined the company’s Board of Directors. Quirk brings more than 25 years of experience in CRM, ERP, finance, supply chain and other high-tech industries, including senior executive leadership at GoldenGate Software, Oracle and PeopleSoft.
As the CEO of Emptoris, Quirk helped the company win and grow more than 200% in 2.5 years. He was responsible for an organization of 750+ global professionals and oversaw the acquisition by IBM.
“It is an incredible opportunity to join the Pramata board,” said Quirk, founder and general partner of ORCA Equities, LLC. “I’m excited to be part of this visionary team that empowers companies with the intelligence to proactively grow, manage and retain their most rewarding business relationships. The combination of Pramata’s cutting-edge CRI technology and end-to-end delivery approach truly sets Pramata apart in the value we bring to Global 2000 organizations.”
The Pramata Customer Relationship Intelligence (CRI) solution extracts and synthesizes essential information about customers from contracts, billing systems and deal documentation. Sales, finance, legal and operations teams at B2B companies rely on it to take action on key questions about valuable customer relationships, such as:
· what has my customer agreed to purchase and what have they paid for?
· what pricing and discounts are in effect?
· what are the key dates and triggers?
· what are the documents that define this customer relationship?
· what are the risks and opportunities with this account?
This information is missing or fragmented across CRM, ERP, Configure Price Quote (CPQ), Customer Success Management and other automation solutions, and requires labor-intensive manual processes to access. Pramata’s capabilities extract and present this valuable information in relevant context for companies—accelerating profitability, efficiency and revenue growth objectives. Pramata serves some of the most recognizable companies in telecom, pharma, enterprise software and manufacturing across the Fortune 2000.
“We are thrilled to have Patrick Quirk join our Board of Directors. His customer focus and proven track record in helping fast-track customer success will greatly contribute to Pramata’s growth,” said Praful Saklani, Pramata co-founder and CEO. “His collaboration further validates that Customer Relationship Intelligence is key to empowering world-class companies with the actionable information they need to effectively manage and grow their most valuable relationships.”
