Creating a Sales Quote for Business Phone Systems


Introduction

The significant difference between using a standard price table in QuoteCloud and a Service Plan price table, is mainly the product library for phone systems.  This special extension to the product catalogue feature in QuoteCloud allows for custmised monthly payment plans.

For example, 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60 month contracts.  In this topic you will learn how the price table feature works when using the Phone System product library when creating quotes.

 

To begin this tutorial, first create a new sales quote and ensure you are on the price section in your new sales quote. 

Next click on the + Insert... button, and select the menu option Add Service Plan, as shown below.

Now you will see a Service Plan price table as show below:

There are two options for a sales consultant to follow when adding Phone System products to the Service Plan price table.  

Option 1: using a Service Plan (Contract)

Option 2: adding products without a Service Plan

The main difference between the two options is that when using the a Service Plan, any products you add to the service plan will default to the same contract term, e.g. if the Service plan is a 24 month plan, then the products added will default the the same monthly pricing (if available for the product being added).

In this topic we will use "Option 1: using a Service Plan".

Click on the + Service button (blue button).  This will add a Service Call Plan to the price table (as shown below). Here you can type the Service Number (phone number), and a Service Title for the Service Plan, both these data fields are free format (so you can type whatever you like here in reality).

 

After typing your Service Number and Service Title information, and while hovering on the Service Number line item - you will see a green action menu icon on the left (as shown below).

Next click on the Add Plan menu option (as shown above), and you will be presented with the available Service Plans on the right side of the window, as shown below.

To add a Service Plan to your Service Price Table, simply double click, or click an item and drag it from the folder tree on the right on to your price table.

The final step is to add the Phone System products to your Service Plan. 

Click on the Phone System tab in the product library on the right of the window, as shown below.

The process to add products is the same as the previous step, simply double click or click on one items in the Phone System folder tree, and drag to your price table, (as shown below).

You will notice that your phone system product pricing will default the monthly terms of the Service Plan.  You can however vary the payment term of the individual products. 

To vary the payment term for a phone system product, click on the down arrow on the right of the price field, (as shown below).
