BigMachines Selling Platform Achieves Oracle Validated Integration With Oracle CRM On Demand Release 19

Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) Solution Provider Offers SaaS Software That Helps Streamline Sales and Increase Revenue, With Integration to Oracle CRM On Demand

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - BigMachines, a Gold level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced that BigMachines 11.1 software has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle CRM On Demand Release 19. BigMachines' on-demand selling platform enables customers to help increase sales and revenue. BigMachines provides innovative solutions for product configuration, pricing and quoting, proposal generation and B2B ecommerce. With this Oracle Validated Integration, key quoting activities from BigMachines can be accessed directly from Oracle CRM On Demand, providing customers with a seamless user experience, and ensuring accurate and convenient data flow between BigMachines and Oracle CRM On Demand.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. BigMachines integration with Oracle CRM On Demand Release 19 allows customers to extend the value of their CRM investment by providing a streamlined opportunity-to-quote-to-order process. Data stored in Oracle CRM On Demand can be accessed by BigMachines during the quoting process, helping ensure accurate product configurations and quotes. This data sharing also enhances CRM reporting and forecasting capabilities and eliminates redundant data re-entry into multiple systems.

"Our relationship with Oracle ensures that our customers experience seamless integration between Oracle CRM On Demand and BigMachines, enhancing user adoption and delivering more meaningful results," stated Tim Handorf, VP Product Management, BigMachines. "Many mutual customers have demonstrated measurable benefits from extending Oracle CRM On Demand with BigMachines, and the Oracle Validated Integration further demonstrates our product alignment."

"Achieving Oracle Validated Integration through Oracle PartnerNetwork gives our customers confidence that the integration between BigMachines 11.1 and Oracle CRM On Demand Release 19 has been validated and that the products work together as designed. This reduces risk and improves the implementation cycles for our joint customers."
