FPX, a leader in enterprise Configure Price Quote (CPQ) solutions, announced it has released an enterprise CPQ solution that’s purpose-built to run natively on Microsoft Azure. FPX CPQ enhances Azure customers’ ability to optimize buying and selling experiences across sales, partner, and ecommerce channels, helping to result in increased revenue, higher profit margins, and enhanced loyalty and engagement.

Today’s B2B customer journey goes beyond direct sales. It spans evolving networks of distributors, dealers, value-added resellers, and ecommerce portals and platforms. FPX CPQ complements the ability of Azure customers to handle various levels of complexity, the agility to advance commerce strategies, and the simplicity to extend and enhance the capabilities of direct and indirect sales.

FPX CPQ is a SaaS application that integrates Azure to deliver a scalable and more reliable solution. Azure provides the infrastructure to support FPX CPQ including storage, application servers and networking resources. Azure delivers built-in load balancing for FPX CPQ cloud services, creating highly available applications. With Azure, locally redundant storage (LRS) provides durable and high-availability storage and a sense of assurance for business continuity.

“By simplifying the complex buying and selling experience companies are able to align their business with the expectations of modern customers,” said George Haenisch, VP of Strategic Alliances at FPX. “Being based in the cloud with the security, global scale, and flexibility of Microsoft Azure enables our solution to move businesses forward with power and agility in this accelerated era of digital transformation.”

As a platform-agnostic and modular solution, FPX CPQ comes pre-built with productised integrations for leading platforms such as Azure, Salesforce, SAP C4C, SAP Hybris, Oracle and IBM – giving customers the newfound ability to:
• Unify customer data, product catalogues, price books, rules, and business attributes from diverse systems of record into a single location
• Harmonise and process diverse data types and sources to create a “Master Commercial Definition” for their business
• Deliver an optimised and personalised buying and selling experience – the right product to the right customer for the right price – regardless of channel

“Our customers are leaders in their respective markets and require enterprise calibre buying and selling capabilities,” said Marc Spiotta, general manager, U.S. Developer Experience, ISV & App Recruitment, Microsoft Corp. “We are excited to introduce them to FPX CPQ, a solution that extends their existing investment in Microsoft Azure and gives them the ability to pursue their omnichannel strategies.”
