It was an absolute privilege to join Oracle and BPI OnDemand last night and to be a part of the Michelin CX Event this year that was held at the prestigious Berry Bros. & Rudd. Enjoying an event that took place in a building that dated back to the 16th century was quite something, and it was also very interesting to hear stories from our Berry Bros host about the famous people of the past and their excuses for buying wine!
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."
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.
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…
Check out this recent Oracle blog post entitled, 'CPQ is the Underrated CX Middle Child and Here’s Why You Should Love It!'
The impact of CPQ on surrounding departments and systems can’t be underestimated, both in terms of the power it can unleash, but also the stakeholders it may need to manage.
You need a very flexible and strong ‘middle child’ to make the most of that opportunity, and Oracle CPQ Cloud is one of the few that can do this.
We’ve got a free consultation on offer here to anyone who wants some help understanding how a CPQ system can help make their family complete or you can download our ebook here.
Oracle really do know how to put on an event, and the recent CX Partner Showcase Day in Dublin was no exception. It was, as the title suggests, a great showcase for the partners who deal in the CX suite of Oracle products and we’re so glad that Walpole Partnership’s MD, Andy Pieroux, was able to be there. As well as getting all the latest news on the CX products, the event enables its partners to meet with the Oracle Direct sales teams and managers, and it was good to see Crevan O'Malley, Feargal McDonnell, Seamus Flanagan and Eithne Leavy, and all their teams yesterday. A special thank you to Ciaran Shanley for sparing so many people from his teams for the day too. The event also provides the opportunity to build relationships with other partners who provide CX solutions. Neal Kent, Geraint Padfield, Aisling Larkin, Alex Love, Andy Stevens, Sagi Koborsi, Oscar Catling and Adam Wilkinson, we hope you all found the showcase as worthwhile as we did. Finally, huge thanks to the organisers Victor Perez- Estrada, Dimitrios Koumpoulis, Scott Falconer, Kate Lynskey and Ruth Arnold who put together such a great day.
