Automating the quote-to-cash process
If you’re looking to automate your sales process even further, you may be considering Configure Price Quote software. A sales tool that allows you to quickly and accurately generate quotes for orders.
The Quote-to-Cash process refers to the automation of end-to-end business transactions, from recognising a consumer’s intent to buy, using CRM, through to providing a quote, signing contracts and receiving funds.
The process goes a little something like this:
- Using CPQ software embedded within Salesforce, your rep configures the offer.
- Then, they generate the quote, safely and securely.
- You can deliver a quote to a prospect.
- With DocuSign for Salesforce (eSignature), the rep can send the quote to their customer for signature, without leaving Salesforce.
- Once the quote has been approved and signed, the rep can send the sales contract for signature. With the click of a button, data from the opportunity is automatically populated in the sales contract, so it doesn’t need rekeying.
- Their prospect signs the agreement, and can even provide additional information during the signing process, such as PO number or shipping address.
- The order is processed.
- An invoice is created, which the customer can settle using the same CPQ software.
- Cash is collected and reallocated.
- Data for the entire process—along with the signed agreement--is stored back in Salesforce automatically, which you can analyse and report on.
Quote-to-cash process benefits:
Configure Price Quote software has a whole host of benefits for both businesses and consumers, helping to further reduce the time and money spent on carrying out basic administrative tasks. It is also extremely convenient for the user, too, as they can manage the entire process remotely, on any device.
In the past, the Configure Price Quote part of the process was a very time-consuming stage of the process.
With quote-to-cash software, you can store all of this information on one single platform, to draft and amend quotes quickly without mistakes.
What makes digital quote-to-cash processes really desirable is that it also automates the collection and analysis of customer data. You can reuse information to further market the business and its products.
If you already have automated post-purchase emails set up via your CRM, this extra data can help further tailor your communications to ensure your customers come back time and again.
