We are very excited to release the latest addition to the Sales Builder Pro app - Deal Manager.
Deal Manager for iPad users launched May 4, 2021.
Deal Manager for Android users launched August 2, 2021.
1) Remote Deal Acceptance.
- In the office, staff can close deals with the Sales Management Tools in the Management Portal.
- In the field, Comfort Consultants can remotely close deals on the tablet.
- Deal status is synchronized between Management Portal and tablet.
- Hot Deals - Pending deals from prior 2-Days
- Warm Deals - Pending deals from prior 7-Days
- Cold Deals - Pending deals from prior 30-Days
Search (new way) replaces Timeline Search (old way) which will be retired in January 2022.
3) Improved Deal Management
- Documents. Store deal-related documents such as signed and scanned proposals, vendor sub-contracts, AHRI certificates, or Warranty Registrations with the deal. When combined with the customer proposal and Forms such as the Comfort Survey, Site Survey, or Quality Installation Checklist it creates a complete Job Folder for the office.
- Deal Notes. Users of the App (Sales) or Management Portal (sales managers, office, or install manager) may add notes. Notes can be color-coded to flag roadblocks (Red), add caution (Yellow), or signal readiness (Green) and are shared between App and Portal.
- Verify Multi-option Wins. Prompts you to verify the customer accepted a quote with more than 1 option to avoid any confusion with rejected proposals.
- Proposal Status. Pending, Obsolete, Accepted, and Declined
- Acceptance. Track acceptance status (such as verbal, email, or signed) so you know what additional follow-up paperwork is required.
- Delete. Admins and Comfort Consultants can "delete” (hide as these may be recovered)" obsolete proposals
