Model N Enterprise

Model N is well suited for large, global enterprises that need more global controls and consistency in the REV Mgmt processes.Model N might be "overkill" for a small, regional customer. It has many features designed for the global enterprise and some companies simply may not need this level of scale.

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

  • 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

We've successfully used Model N for many, many years. It is the heartbeat of ON Semiconductor sales operations. I said that at a Rainmaker about 10 years ago and it's still true today. We continue to upgrade as new releases are available to maximize the benefits of Model N through-out our organization.

Alternatives Considered

Model N Enterprise

Model N is our legacy system and none of these other companies offer products that provide the holistic business processes and economic value like Model N. It's internal modules are well-integrated and various BI tools provide excellent presentation of data, both at the analyst and executive levels.

Return on Investment

Model N Enterprise

  • Provides enterprise-wide transparency of data and system of record for critical operational data.
  • Holistic price management tools enable us to align productivity goals for certain customers while maintaining desired overall margins.

  • 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.
