Companies all over the world are seeing great results from implementing a CPQ system.
The huge number of benefits of using CPQ technology include faster, more accurate and better-looking quotes, sales orders that are easy to process, and significant growth in revenue and profit. However, CPQ projects can fail when designed or implemented without experience. Our expert team at Walpole Partnership will ensure that your CPQ solution succeeds, and that it delivers the results that you expect and need.

In our experience there are 5 core principles that form the foundation of a successful CPQ project
Take the chance to challenge complex ways of working before the build. Don’t over-engineer. Remove unnecessary steps and build a lean, effective system.
CPQ is at the heart of an organisation. Building momentum across sales, product, finance and other departments needs a clear strategy and insight into different perspectives.
Plan for quick wins. Execute efficiently. Test and learn rapidly. Be responsive to your users. Resource your team to create momentum.
Design to the strengths of your CPQ software and stay standard unless critical. Customisation is hard to support. Best practices build lasting systems.
Invest in the teams that will design, deliver and support your system. Provide guidance and training from experts or supplement your teams and let them learn.
The team at Walpole Partnership has the experience to build you a great system, and we have a range of implementation services available to suite your organisation.

Do you want to implement CPQ, but your business needs more flexibility?
If you’re after a more customised CPQ system, then we also have the agility to create bespoke implementations here at Walpole Partnership. In fact, a bespoke implementation is the most common way to integrate a CPQ solution. Your project will be defined according to each business requirement and delivered through an agile, semi-agile or traditional waterfall project management methodology. When executed well, the resulting CPQ solution will be best suited when requirements are very well defined, and expectations are clearly set. A bespoke implementation guarantees a successful and sustainable implementation which is fit-for-purpose for your organisation.
