By Steve Zocchi, Model N
Thousands of people are converging at Salesforce World Tour Events in cities like Chicago, London, New York and Boston to see the latest from companies like Model N that develop native applications on the Salesforce 1 platform. This week in Chicago the audience will see the Universe align right on stage at the World Tour – the IT universe that is.
Model N will be showing how companies can unify their SAP and Salesforce environments to drive digital transformation. We’ll be highlighting Revvy CPQ for SAP, the first enterprise-grade, Salesforce native CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) solution that “out of the box” directly leverages SAP Variant Configurator data and business logic to power quoting natively in Salesforce.
Typical Salesforce native CPQ solutions require custom integrations to use SAP data. Beside being complex and costly, these direct integrations using SAP BAPI and Salesforce web services are “chatty,” using fake orders and multiple queries to get information back from SAP. It’s slow, doesn’t scale and it’s a nightmare for maintenance and testing when there are changes to the SAP data.
Revvy CPQ leverages a patented technology that can price and configure products natively in Salesforce, exactly as if they had been quoted in SAP, and then place full functioning orders into SAP order management. No messy integrations and changes in SAP are automatically available in Salesforce through Revvy CPQ.
And Revvy CPQ is complemented by Revvy Contract Management, Revvy Global Price Management and Revvy Rebates, applications in the Salesforce native Revvy Revenue Management Suite that deliver SAP interoperability and enterprise-grade capabilities for managing the entire revenue life cycle. For companies that want to leverage their existing SAP ERP as the system of record for pricing, product configuration and order management, and use Salesforce as their customer success platform, it will change their world…or maybe their universe.
Model N and Revvy CPQ for SAP will be at the Salesforce World Tour in Chicago on Thursday, March 24, 2016. Please visit us in Booth #108 and join us post-event at the Tavern at the Park.
