C5 Insight Managing Partner Geoff Ables is presenting July 2020 webinars on annual planning for digital workplaces and Configure Price Quote (CPQ) software solutions.
“Creating a Digital Workplace Annual Plan” will be presented on Thursday, July 16 from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon Eastern time. This webinar is sponsored by Apparo, a nonprofit for nonprofits, that helps Charlotte-area nonprofit organizations leverage technology and improve business processes to expand how they create positive social change in the community. Digital workplace projects promise to transform companies from tired legacy thinking into teams of engaged employees that disrupt their competitors. But, honestly, these projects have a way of getting off track. In fact, 60-80% of digital workplace projects struggle or fail. Two of the most frequently sited reasons: not understanding the unique planning process, and no plan for change management. This session will dive into an annual digital workplace planning process, what should be included in the roadmap, how to engage leaders and users in the process, and what to consider leaving out. Ables will discuss the importance of going beyond technology and into changing how organizations think about their people. Attendees will take away a framework for planning to launch or improve their project, and a process for keeping up the momentum

“Is CPQ for You?” is scheduled for Thursday, July 30 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern time. This webinar is presented in partnership with Cincom, developer of CPQSync cloud-based CPQ software. When properly implemented, Configure Price Quote (CPQ) solutions can significantly accelerate the velocity and quality of a sales pipeline. CPQ tools have been available as add-ons for Dynamics 365 (both CRM and ERP offerings) for quite some time. Yet, many companies don’t fully understand how these solutions may or may not align with their sales models. Attendees will learn:
- What is a CPQ Solution
- The kinds of businesses it works for (including case studies)
- How to choose the right solution for a business
- The right time to implement CPQ
