MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwired - June 13, 2017) - Questar, a SalesEdge customer, is recognized for business growth achieved using Qvidian Proposal Automation. By streamlining the sales organization's RFP response processes, Questar achieved significant revenue growth.

At Connect17, Qvidian's annual user conference, Leif Ueland, Director of Sales Operations at Questar, accepted the Qvidian Annual Excellence Award for Business Growth.

After 40 years as primarily a provider of specialty assessments, Questar set an ambitious goal to become the premier provider of high-stakes grades 3-8 statewide assessments. In June of 2015 -- and within six months of fully implementing Qvidian -- Questar won Mississippi's statewide assessment contract. The State of New York awarded Questar its state contract over their incumbent assessment provider shortly thereafter, and less than a year after that, Tennessee followed suit.

This business growth is directly attributed to the Questar proposal team's focus on creating higher-quality RFP content and more effectively managing RFPs and proposals using Qvidian Proposal Automation software. At Qvidian's Connect17 conference, Leif Ueland shared, "One of the amazing aspects of this story is that proposals have emphatically been at the center of this explosive, headline grabbing growth. Questar's growth didn't happen until we completely transformed how we approached proposals."

SalesEdge, a value-added reseller of Qvidian Proposal Automation, provided Leif Ueland and the Questar proposal team with guidance and training to effectively use Qvidian proposal automation software technology. Kym Harrington, SalesEdge President shared, "We celebrate Questar's success, and stand ready to help the team to achieve its next objectives."
