Problem Statement

Before Salesforce implementation, there was a lack of coherence in the overall process of both Sales, Post Sales, and Service. The company had previously used a few CRM software but were not satisfies. These CRMs lacked a complete Business 360 approach and could not satisfy their need.
To add to their misery, the sales team had to Reverse calculate the Cost Price and Margin based on the Selling price manually every time they asked for a discounted quote.
Being a Value-Added Reseller, calculation of the Cost Price based on the Final price was necessary. This step in the Quote Generation ate away the valuable time of the Sales reps. Adding to the time is the additional step of taking authorization before finalizing the deal.
So, the company was in dire need of Sales and Field Service Automation which would streamline their business end to end.

Solution Implemented

Sales Reps can directly manage the Lead to Quote cycle in the system, visible to all stakeholders. A feature to reverse calculate Discounted Grand Total Price, including GST, and Margin, cost and sales price, will be automatically calculated in real-time.
This duration for the Sales Cycle has been reduced, increasing the efficiency for the customer.
