A great new post from the Oracle SMB Blog entitled '4 Lessons from CPQ Failures' which is really worth checking out. We couldn't agree more with what Graham McInnes says, and are reminded of the old military adage of the 7 Ps...
Our relationship-based Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) project work took us into France again during Oracle's fiscal year end, and we’re pleased to announce that we are currently implementing CPQ in a major facilitation services company, streamlining the way they interact with their client member organisations. We will also be working in conjunction with other consulting lead partners integrating CPQ with eCommerce next to Oracle Engagement Cloud, and we’re looking forward to sharing the results soon!
Walpole Partnership is very pleased to continue working with an IT services company that serves the telecoms industry in the Middle East. We've provided expert skills to maintain and develop a well-established CPQ solution that has been in operation for ten years. This requires careful and skilful precision to make changes without causing unforeseen consequences. It's a bit like performing open heart surgery on a live system. The expertise we've built up working with Big Machines/Oracle CPQ Cloud makes Walpole Partnership an ideal company to work on these sorts of projects.
Walpole Partnership is delighted to share that they have achieved recognition as an Oracle Cloud Excellence Implementer (CEI) for Oracle CX Cloud. The Oracle CEI programme recognises consulting partners that demonstrate their ongoing expertise, which is validated with an exemplary track record of their implementation of Oracle Cloud solutions.
We're very pleased to announce that the series of blog posts entitled 'What CPQ Can Really Do for You' is being published on the Oracle CX Blog. Andy Pieroux, Walpole Partnership's MD, wrote the twelve-part series, and is delighted that it is being reposted by Oracle. He said "I'm really pleased that Oracle is supporting us by publicising these blog posts as it's great to get the CPQ message out to a wider audience."
If you’re reading this, you almost certainly have a LinkedIn profile and probably use LinkedIn not only to connect with professional contacts, but you might also use this social networking tool to keep well-informed about industry news etc. I use LinkedIn a great deal and find it invaluable having the majority of my contacts in one place. 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…
The last time we ever doubted Oracle's commitment to Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) technology was back in early 2014, straight after the BigMachines acquisition. Once it was clear that the platform was becoming an integral part of Oracle's CX strategy, and we saw the tremendous amount of resources that were being deployed to ensure the long term success of the product, we knew we could stick with Oracle and the new CPQ Cloud product.
Seeing the way Oracle 'eat their own dog-food' and use CPQ Cloud on a global scale internally reinforces that in the best possible way, as of course does the response we get from our customers when we implement solutions on the Oracle CPQ platform.
