Optimize Sales Orders with CPQ
Oracle Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) guides customers through an order to cash process of entering a correctly configured and fully detailed purchase order. Once a correctly configured order is entered, the CPQ solution responds with a price quote including all the proper discounts, terms, and conditions for this specific customer. If the customer accepts the quote, it then becomes an order. The solution improves order accuracy, shortens sales cycles, and lowers operational costs. It is the only configure, price, quote solution available today that is designed to connect the front- and back-office.
