PROS Smart CPQ

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

Vendavo

Vendavo is well suited for large organizations with complex pricing scenarios. Vendavo is very flexible to implement to different businesses. Global processes can be done in Vendavo with a single instance on most occasions with diverse business processes without compromising much of the current business processes.

Vendavo

  • The charts and graphs that you can pull from Vendavo are easy to read, and easy to work with.
  • Reporting - You can save individual reports and run them consistently. They are also easy to tweak for a more specific application.
  • Export capabilities were great, it was easy to grab data from Vendavo.

Cons

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).

  • Improve import function in the Profit Analyzer for bulk parts. Handles large part imports slowly.

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

SaaS based tool. Better quoting rules.

I preferred Vendavo, but my price manager migrated to Tableau. I think because of the licencing costs of vendavo?

Return on Investment

PROS Smart CPQ

  • 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.
