The modern cloud software will be used to help Deutsche Telekom simplify buying experiences, accelerate time to market, and increase revenue through new communication and digital services.
“We consider the selected cloud software as the best configure-price-quote solution for B2B across our EU footprint,” said Guido Menzel, SVP Technology Europe of Deutsche Telekom. “Vlocity’s commitment is very high, thus I’m fully convinced that we will execute a successful implementation and gain new growth opportunities.”
