The Walpole Partnership team has had a good break over the festive season and are back and working hard, as it is already shaping up to be a very busy CPQ-focused year. But before we get too far into 2019, we want to take a moment to look forward, and to consider what we hope this year will hold for us and share it with you.
Looking back on 2018 it’s been a year of great growth and excitement for us at Walpole Partnership, and we’re prouder than ever of the team that we have built here. We’ve welcomed a lot of new faces, with Ian Jenkins, Lee Hasnath, George Sharpe, Brij Kishore, Prakash Singh and Mahejabeen Budebhai all becoming part of the Walpole success story. We’ve also been able to help Pradeep Agrawal and his wife Richa join us in the UK by sponsoring their visas. We’re hoping to expand the team further in 2019, and we’ll bring news on that as soon as we are able.
Walpole Partnership is excited to share that one of the key Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) client programmes we are continuing to work on is based in the Netherlands. We are helping a leading enterprise company in the industrial manufacturing sector to leverage the many benefits of implementing Oracle CPQ Cloud. Through continued collaboration with the Client Project Team we are looking to deliver another CPQ configurator divisional project which is supporting the company's overall Digital Transformation.
Do you ever feel that running or working for a business has become a really complex operation? The things and services that are sold need to have enough variations to give individual customers exactly what they need. Even the simplest of tasks can be made challenging by the layers of administration and the demands of others in your own organisation. It can often feel overwhelmingly complicated, but there is something that can help.
We’re excited to continue our work on a project based in France with an enterprise company in the industrial manufacturing sector. We're helping this company gain the many benefits of implementing Oracle CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) Cloud, and as the project keeps gathering momentum, we’ll share more regular updates. In the meantime it’s safe to say that we’re enjoying to continue to lead the implementation work with Imnet and BPI OnDemand to deliver a great CPQ solution, fully integrated through Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) with Oracle Engagement and Service Cloud supporting the Digital Transformation journey towards a 360 degree customer view for our client.
At Walpole Partnership we are passionate about our company culture. It is at the very core of who we are and what we do, and we believe it powers our success. Our culture is not simply focused on our team members’ experiences, as it’s something much more considerable than that – it’s how we think, how we act and how we interact with each other, our customers, partners, and the wider community.
If you work in manufacturing and your sales quoting process has become slow or disconnected, it’s time to look for a different solution. Many manufacturing sales teams are working with disjointed or manual quoting processes that don’t produce results. Is that you?
Representatives from Walpole Partnership have been privileged to attend not only one, but two of the Oracle Modern Customer Experience (MCX) days this week – the first in Frankfurt and the second in London. We couldn’t get to the Stockholm MCX, as today we’ve been busy with the Oracle CPQ Partner Advisory Board in London, but a couple of the team are in Sweden on business next week, so we’ll hopefully get to check in with our Oracle friends over there soon.

So when I was using LinkedIn the other day I had a thought, if someone came to me and asked me who to follow on this social network, who would I suggest? Here goes…
