Oracle Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) helps you increase quote accuracy and deal profitability with smart quoting capabilities that remove all guesswork. Guide your sellers to the right product or service for their customers at each purchasing stage and at the right price based on similar cases’ prior history, contracts, or deals.
SAP’s CPQ quoting process offers a SKU-by-SKU selection, which often leaves sellers guessing what products and services should be included or if certain products are required to be sold together. Such guesswork could ultimately lead to inaccurate quotes and lengthier sales cycles.1
Oracle CPQ provides in-depth, built-in features such as AI-driven deal management as well as price optimization, collaborative quoting, and system configuration—all at no additional cost.
On the other hand, SAP’s CPQ solution relies on partners to fill gaps where similar functionality is lacking—which has been known to drive up costs and complexity.1
Oracle makes it easier for companies to tap into new revenue models with Oracle CPQ combined with Oracle Subscription Management. Together they provide robust services to help you manage the subscription lifecycle, including renewals, amendments, cancellations, direct and indirect sales, self-service, and service/field sales.
SAP doesn’t offer a similar subscription management solution2 so you’d have to find another solution to integrate with their CPQ solution to achieve the same breadth of services.
The path to sales success: score your organization’s sales strategy.
The deep integration with Oracle Commerce, including channel switching use cases, delivers one of the best multichannel quoting and ordering solutions evaluated for this report.
Oracle CPQ increases your seller’s efficiency, letting them configure quotes with technical accuracy in the selection of products, services, revenue models, and price types, while adhering to company strategies. This helps your sales team deliver a seamless purchasing experience, the first time and every time.
SAP CPQ’s updated quoting engine doesn’t integrate with all of SAP's front- and back-office applications, including SAP Cloud for Customer and SAP ERP, leaving you with a fragmented and disjointed solution.2
Take a guided tour to discover how Oracle CPQ can help you.
