Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

It is a really good solution when it comes to insights on companies where you want to place your products because it tells you all the information where you can attach the use of your solution, the only thing is that it needs more information on mid-market.

If you have reps and need territories assigned geographically then AlignStar is a great option. While we do not have reps in the field, I can see how powerful it can be in aligning territories not only based on estimated revenue or some other metric but also with rep location and driving in mind.

Pros

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • Each time we've had a hurdle, we were given internal assistance to ensure we were not left alone.
  • It is easily customizable to add and subtract anything you see fit (we've added additional filters down to the zip code, state, rep's name, etc. to filter through data most effectively.
  • There is no lag in the system. If you see it there, it is tracked in real time.
Simon Vargas | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Detailed label options by ZIP code. I know the immediate impact of moving a single ZIP code.
  • Territory Optimizer. If we are having trouble figuring out the correct configuration for a particular area, its helpful to see what the program suggests. It may come up with something we hadn't thought of yet.
  • Custom layers. I am able to mark the previous territory boundaries, so if we want to undo a change, I know exactly where we started from.

Cons

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • Although not necessarily designed for it, our sales team finds it difficult to use the product for tracking demo units.
  • The mobile version of the application falls very short. Our IT department fields a lot of complaints regarding its functionality.
  • Following application upgrades - which are frequent - we often have to rebuild some of the custom screens we created.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Xactly AlignStar

  • Easier functionality to label the territories. We currently still use the desktop app and labels for any feature are rather small and not intuitive.
  • Speed of the application. The desktop version we currently use tends to be a bit slower and runs into the "application not responding" issue quite often.
  • Ability for the desktop version to automatically update Salesforce. It would be nice if I could have Alignstar update a field on an account record in Salesforce when I make updates in Alignstar.

So far it is all good with BigMachines, looking for new features since Oracle acquisition has created a lot of expectations. We have outlined our limitations (out of box functionality) in our periodic customer successor advice meetings for a while, hope we get a resolution soon. Also, the BigMachines user license fee has increased a lot in the last three years.

The software UI can be as complex or as simple as you need it to be (depending on the business). It does require training others on quote configuration and the order in which to build out order positions prior to configuring a quote. Once users are trained;however, it is fairly straight-forward. The UI is still more static than other new wizard/drag-and-drop models, but it get's the job done

Some specific support personal was good and fixed some problems fast using proper solutions. But when one of them went to sleep when we had critical issues and they do unreported commits to our production environment which caused issues and they were hiding it?? you can not give more than a two (maybe even that is too much). They also failed to add a feature for us which also bring the grade down.

They have pretty good training. Our business analysts have been able to go to entry and advanced level training. They have a train the trainer model. Our business analyst attended training, then trained the rest of our staff.

It was a much more technical implementation than we thought. It involved much more code.

Future releases have made and will make administering the tool easier.

EDL consulting had one good developer, but when he was moved off, they were horrible to work with.

The BMI sales team does a “BOA” or a “Business Operation Assessment” which is extremely valuable, not only for them to scope an implementation and get more reach within the organization, but it is also a documentation of business process that most organizations don’t have. It highlights inefficiencies and allows for correction during implementation.

Having a dedicated team (in-house) for implementation is key

Alternatives Considered

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

We debated a few different options, including a home-grown custom program, uCommerce, and just using only Oracle Commerce Cloud. Since we had already decided to use Oracle Commerce Cloud over uCommerce, the integrations available between OCC, Oracle's ERP system, and Oracle CPQ definitely seemed like the easiest option with the greatest benefits. However, the cost/benefit of Oracle CPQ was more apparent when we were ready to launch more complex configurations across all of our product groups.

Javelin is another tool that we have used to assist us with territory alignment. Great tool. AlignStar is on par with Javelin.

Return on Investment

Oracle CX Sales (formerly Oracle Engagement Cloud)

  • As an account manager who does a lot of their own prospecting, DataFox has literally saved myself and my co-workers hours per week in prospecting. Manually finding companies and assembling lists can take a long time, but with DataFox what took hours before can now be accomplished in 15 minutes.
  • DataFox has allowed our team to reach more companies faster. Expanding our reach means more exposure, which means more demos and more closed deals.
Shane Finnegan | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Easy to continuously plan forward for any potential changes by playing around with the optimization software. Able to more easily adapt our sales team and plan forward
