MSDW Podcast: The evolution of the CPQ opportunity for Dynamics 365 customers

by MSDW Reporter
Editorial Team,

This episode is sponsored by Experlogix.

Configure price quote (CPQ) technology  is notoriously versatile, and while its early use cases focused on a few prime sectors of the economy, today's CPQ solutions regularly reach a broad swath of industries and business scenarios. On this episode, Peter Willemse, VP of product management at Experlogix, shares his latest views on why CPQ capabilities continue to expand and how the evaluation process for enterprise technology continues to change. He also explains his latest thinking on how to model ROI, taking into account the full spectrum of costs, benefits, and opportunities to improve business processes.

A podcast episode about CPQ wouldn't be complete without hearing about some interesting new scenarios where the technology is put to use. And Peter gives an update on Experlogix's product lineup, which is evolving to incorporate their newer document management and commerce capabilities.
