CIS Configurator

I like it when we are looking to see which patient is on which prescriptions and when a note is needed to be sent to the doctor we can mark it urgent. Sometimes this backfires and the note can be overlooked and an urgent message can be sitting in a file for a while.

We went from quoting time from hours to minutes or from days to hours after everyone learned its processes, but it's not really worth the time and money invested into it if you can't see those results

Pros

CIS Configurator

  • Confidentiality with health records
  • Communications between work and the doctors
  • Areas to send prescriptions
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM CPQ

  • Provides associated quotes through the life cycle of the opportunity, until the opportunity is either won or lost.
  • You can store all the information you require during the quoting process, including customer details, information about products and the adjustment made to the price of products, and the payment terms and shipment terms that will be used in the order if the quote is converted to an order.

Cons

CIS Configurator

  • Sometimes the site is down for a period of time and this disrupts the workflow
  • Pulling up multiple patients can sometimes get confusing
Kelly Ferriter | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM CPQ

  • There were widespread frustrations throughout sales and call center with CPQ originally. But really the reason why CPQ tools are complex is because CPQ processes are complex things to implement.
  • Users today want all the flexibility with none of the complexity. It is one of the biggest challenges in my day-to-day.
