Managing and Assigning Add-ons for Plans


Introduction

This user guide topic covers how to set-up automatic add-ons to Service Plans and optional available add-ons for a Service Plan.

What is an Add-on?  An Add-on is a sales quote line item that is added to a sales quote when the sales consultant adds a Service Plan to their sales quote.  For example, an add-on to a Service Plan for mobile phone contracts could be "Roaming while overseas 2GB ", "Apple Music", "FoxTel Movies", etc.  Basically they are "add-on" products to a Service Plan that create a differentiator to your competitors.  You may or may not choose to charge for these add-on services.

 

Using Add-on's for a Service Plan

The first step to create an add-on is to define the add-on in the Add-On catalogue.  Click on the Content Libraries menu in the User Dashboard and select the option Add-ons.

 

To create a new Add-On click on the + New button

You should now see the Add Item modal (as shown below).

Complete the data fields required for your new Add-On, the following is the explaination of each data item:

Folder (Required data field) : this drop down field will make you place your new Add-On into a folder category, you can create a new folder by selecting the Add new folder... menu option. 

It is important to organise your data well, especially if you are going to create a lot of Add-On's.  Think about how your data should be organised to the user.  For example, categorise into meaningful folders such as "Entertainment", "International Calls", "Data", etc

Sub-folder (optional data field) : if there is a need to further categorise your Add-On's you can optionally create a sub-folder;

Addon Name (required data field) : The Add-On Name is the name that appears to the Sales Consultant when they need to choose an Add-On to sell (when creating a sales quote in the Sales Quote Editor, or when the administrator is allocating an Add-On to a Service Plan).  Try to keep this name short and quickly informative for Sales Consultants.  Avoid long, criptic or difficult to understand language here, as it may make it difficult for your sales team to understand when creating sales quotes;

Description (required data field) :  This is a very important data item, this is the text that will appear on the sales quote line item.  Make this user friendly and accurate as it will appear on your sales quotes sent to customers and needs to be clear to a customer what they are buying;

Price (required data field) : This is the monthly price to be charged

Term (Months) (required data field) : Enter the number of months the monthly price (above) will be charged, for example if for 12 months enter 12 in this data field.  If this is a one-off charge the type 1 into this data field

Consumer Information Summary : Upload a PDF filed containing the terms and conditions relating to the use of this Add-On.  This will automatically be appended to the price section of a Sales Quote, when this Add-On is used.

Image: Click on this icon to upload an image (e.g. icon) to represent this Add-On in the Sales Quote.  This image appear to the left of the price line item in a sales quote.  It is not mandatory to upload an image here, it is purely for asthetics.

 

After you have entered all your data for this new Add-On, click on the Save Changes button.

 

Assigning an Add-on to a Service Plan

After creating your catalogue of Add-On's as described above.  Next you must assign the Add-On's to a Service Plan.

Click on the Content Library menu on the User Dashboard, and select the Plans option, (as shown below)

Click on the Edit button next to an existing plan (on the right of the row), or add a new plan by clicking on the + New Item Button.

There are two types of Add-On fields, Included Add-Ons and Optional Add-Ons:

Included Add-Ons - These add-ons will automatically be added to a sales quote when this Service Plan is added to a price table in a sales quote.

Optional Add-Ons  - These add-ons are available for the Sales Consultant to choose to add to a Service Plan inserted into a sales quote, it is upto the sales consultant and the customer to decide if these Add-On's are to be included with the Service Plan being sold to the customer.

Click into the Included Addons or the Optional Add-ons data items, and you will see a drop down list of the available add-ons that can be selected from the Add-On Catalogue. Select the ones required and they will appear in blue (as shown above).

Click on the Save Changes button to commit your update.
