Configure Price Quote (CPQ) Solutions

How Salesforce CPQ Helps Increase Your Business Revenue?

Professional Services Industry includes software services, training, certification industry, etc. The majority of sales processes in this business are similar to the normal Sales process of a CRM platform. In terms of product structure and rules, the products and services sold are not overly complicated. Every company, on the other hand, has its method of pricing and offering discounts to clients.


Through configuration and customization options, Salesforce CPQ provides a solution to satisfy the pricing calculation demands. The sales cycle for professional services concludes with the formation of a project to track the actions related to the services sold to the customer. Salesforce CPQ can help with this as well.

CPQ provides the following key benefits:

Improved Quote Accuracy –

A quote may go through several iterations as a result of changes in various parameters. For instance, revision of activity duration of a resource that is working onsite. CPQ keeps track of the price per planned resource for a project and automates pricing implications so that all of these changes are calculated automatically. Each update in CPQ can be set up to automatically generate approvals.

Reduce data mismatch between quotes and projects –

In most cases, sales data is kept in a separate system that isn’t always integrated with the project management system. Many issues arise as a result of data discrepancies between what was mentioned and what is intended for the project. Data mismatches for activity time, resource responsibilities, rates, and other factors are eliminated when CPQ and other projects are integrated.

Streamline Quote Revisions –

After a project has begun, it is highly usual to get a change request or contract amendment. CPQ has a Quotation revision process that may be used to fulfill the needs of any revisions to an existing project, and it can also be used to manage change requests during the quote process.

The following is an example of a general use case from lead to quote to project:

Unlike regular Salesforce objects, you can create custom Salesforce objects. Custom objects are those that are generated by platform users to meet their specific needs. Though there are several objects already built into the platform of Salesforce CRM, they can’t cater to all the needs of every single organization. To circumvent this barrier, Salesforce has the option of custom objects, which allows customers to construct Salesforce objects that are unique to their business and serve specific functions.

A courier company, for example, could develop a custom object to hold each week’s schedule and shipment details. As a result, these objects store data that is specific to the company. Custom fields can be added to custom objects in addition to the normal Salesforce fields.

The procedure for revisions and change requests is as follows:

CPQ can also assist in all aspects of a project, including:
