Oracle Configure, Price, and Quote Cloud is exceptionally well suited to configuring and pricing complex products, like our supercomputer, data analytics, and storage and data management products. It has become indispensable to our business.
Cray Inc. is at the forefront of developing advanced computing solutions for the world’s most complex science, engineering, and analytics challenges. Its supercomputers, storage and data management systems, and data analytics solutions are extremely complex and built to unique client specifications. As a result, the company has a similarly complex configure, price, and quote (CPQ) process.
Cray had long relied on a spreadsheet-based CPQ system, but it was prone to version-control issues and could not provide the level of auditability needed to meet Sarbanes-Oxley and other government contracting requirements. Cray looked to Oracle Configure, Price, and Quote Cloud (Oracle CPQ Cloud) to drive more consistent pricing, increase governance, boost productivity, deliver new business insight, and improve their customer experience.
At the time we selected Oracle Configure, Price, and Quote Cloud, it was the only solution that could meet our rigorous requirements around flexibility, auditability, and security. It plays an important role in our organization.
Cray integrated Oracle CPQ Cloud with its ERP and CRM systems to optimize enterprise-wide visibility into vital configuration and pricing processes. It also ensures accurate and consistent data across all three systems. This integration delivers greater insight into deal profitability and the true costs of a project, and fuels continuous improvement initiatives.
For more than 40 years, Cray has developed highly advanced computing solutions for the world’s most complex science, engineering, and analytics challenges. Its portfolio includes three product lines: supercomputers, storage and data management systems, and data analytics solutions. Cray is committed to deliver next-generation products that integrate diverse processing technologies into a unified architecture, enabling customers to surpass today’s limitations.
