Conga Collaborate

We've found that closing deals through Ocitv is very efficient and effective in saving our team time. A small team at our company has been using the beta version to display multiple quotes and proposals through our customized templates. The customization of templates allows multiple teams to leverage the software with little resistance from the client. We work with many legacy companies that still require a formal legal agreement

Is my IT team ready to handle the challenges with data integration ? Are all the features offered by my current quoting tool being offered by Cameleon? Do I need a SaaS based quoting tool? Would it be easy and intuitive for my sales team (who,quite frankly, worship MS Excel) to use Cameleon ? Do I need a real-time/near-real-time quoting tool or would delays in data refreshes be acceptable

Pros

Conga Collaborate

  • Simple to implement and use. If you're using Word to write proposals, distribute, redline and edit them... you're going to save time on the first proposal you write.
  • Impressive to our prospects. When we distribute our password-protected proposals, our prospects always comment on what a great experience it is.
  • A huge time-saver with its templating capabilities. We have standard engagements with our clients and we're able to control and update the messaging as needed, and still personalize it to each opportunity.
  • A company that listens and cares about their clients' usage. From day 1 at TinderBox, the team has been responsive to our needs.
  • Tracking and measurement show our success rates. We love the fact that we get notified when the prospect opens the proposal and that we can track our team's success.

Cons

Conga Collaborate

  • Formatting is weak. Sometimes the UX for bold, underline, etc. do not work well. Copy and paste functionality can be buggy at times.
  • At times, we have a difficulties with the connection between SFDC and the tool, and sometimes the SOW does not appear in the opportunity record in SFDC.
  • Takes a while to get it looking good in terms of a final SOW. It can be time consuming and not very easy to learn as a beginner.

PROS Smart CPQ

  • Integration with other onsite systems such as Oracle databases require the expertise of knowledgeable developers. Manual upload of flat files are always an option , but not necessarily the cleanest.
  • Better Cameleon CPQ Designer UI would go a long way. Currently UI is a stark contrast to the intuitive UI of SalesForce.com or similar SaaS based tools. Not too much to ask for , considering the fact that we work in the era of Facebook and Twitter.
  • Real time data availability is a long way to go for Cameleon CPQ. Updates to data pushed over as batches to Cameleon are reflected at Salesforce.com only after a 'versioning' process is launched. Current recommended frequency for this process is once a day (an upgrade to make it twice a day is in the works).

There are a few features that we expected from the tool but Cameleon's CPQ has fallen short on these. Possible enhancements and product fixes should be made as soon as possible to change the perspective. Unexpected bugs in the tool have come up during the roll-out that has caught the implementation team off-guard

Usability

It's a fantastic platform as is, but there's always an opportunity to squeeze a little optimization into the fold. I am of the belief that the user should be looking left to go backwards, right to go forwards, up to the right for support, and hitting the menus for other commands. Sometimes I go to advance and I'm hit with the message that I have to save first... so I have to click a button up top to save, then back down to advance. I think a "Save and Continue" in places is appropriate.

Return on Investment

Conga Collaborate

  • Positive: Time saving and proposal consistency.
  • Negative: Unreliable editor.
  • Positive: I appreciate the ability to track user's activity once a proposal is completed.

  • A salesforce.com -esque approach to CRM has a whole gamut of advantages. Cameleon CPQ complements this approach.
  • Expect down times , feature problems or general disagreement about Cameleon's capabilities initially. This is true for adopting any new tool or technology. Hold on and it will tide over.
  • As a person who has used Cameleon purely as a developer standpoint , I do not have anything more to add-on.
