Milwaukee, WI, October 14, 2008 – – Webcom, Inc., a leader in simplified quote-to-order enablement for the selling of complex products and services and a Certified Partner in the Oracle® PartnerNetwork, is pleased to announce that Tripwire, the recognized leader of configuration assessment and change auditing software for virtual and physical infrastructure, has implemented the Webcom WebSource CPQ solution to simplify its quote-to-order process.

Tripwire’s flagship product, Tripwire Enterprise, helps IT organizations automate compliance across the data center by verifying that each change to system settings is authorized, within policy and compliant. Tripwire ensures that organizations achieve continuous operational, regulatory and security compliance. With Tripwire Enterprise, IT systems remain in a known and compliant state, reducing risk, ensuring security, and achieving operational efficiency.

“We needed a solution that would help us streamline our sales processes from opportunity to order, both for new business and renewals,” said Shawn Sands, Director of Inside Sales at Tripwire. “The combined offering of Oracle® Siebel CRM OnDemand and WebSource CPQ has allowed us to do just that, increasing our effectiveness and productivity.”

Requiring nothing more than a web-browser, WebSource CPQ allows sales people, channel partners and consumers to easily and skillfully configure, price, quote and propose products/services. “The handling of renewals, not just new business is a significant challenge in the technology space, in particular with software firms,” said Chris Lesar, Webcom Executive Vice President. “Addressing this key business challenge, as well as handling areas such as bundling, budget-based pricing, quoting of service/support, term-based and traditional license-based pricing, among others, makes WebSource CPQ an excellent fit in the high tech sector”, added Lesar.

Addressing the complexities raised by multiple product choices, sales hierarchy, discounting rules, pricing rules and multiple channels, companies can automate quoting, revisions, the approval process, as well as leverage guided-selling and self-service applications with WebSource CPQ. The combination of Oracle Siebel CRM OnDemand and WebSource CPQ allows Tripwire, and others, to:

  • Bridge the gap from opportunity to order.
  • Simplify the sales process and configure, price, quote and propose a product/service offerings across all channels, anytime, anywhere.
