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 –
Reduce data mismatch between quotes and projects –
Streamline Quote Revisions –
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.
