OpportunitiesAn opportunity is a potential sale, and involves specific products in which the prospective buyer has demonstrated interest.

You can generate a quote for the specific products involved in the opportunity. You can also track the status of an opportunity. Quotes/ProposalsYou can generate a proposal document for an opportunity. A proposal is a formal document that lays out the details of the current quote and other information such as discounts, taxes, shipping costs, and up-sell and cross-sell products.

The following types of opportunities contribute to your revenue figures over a forecast period:Opportunities that have resulted in salesOpportunities that are likely to result in sales and are in pipeline stagesOpportunities placed on holdMilestonesMilestones are Sales activities that need to be completed when an opportunity is processed. The status of completion of a milestone affects the probability of the opportunity to close, and also indicates the pipeline stage of the opportunity.

Each action / step can lead to another template step or to a URL identified in the script template. A step can be marked as the first or last step in the template. Define the use for a script templateEach script template can be assigned to a service type for inbound calls so that a user is automatically guided with the appropriate script based on the type of call they receive. Validate and test script templatesAfter defining all the steps within a script template, an administrator can then validate and test the template to ensure it is what they had in mind. The validation option will ensure that all steps have valid target steps, and that a first and last step are defined for the template. Testing the script will allow the administrator to run the script and see what it will look like without having to leave the script page.

The user is able to set the status of the service request (new, open, closed) and is able to enter notes into the temporary notes section which can be pushed into the permanent notes section. When a service request is saved, all parameters are set based on the information provided. Run a script for any service requestThe user is able to run a script from a service request based on the type of service or type of request chosen. This script will guide the user through the necessary questions / steps for the call, and once it is completed, the summary of the script will be inserted into the notes section of the service request. Run an action plan based on a service requestAn action plan can be associated with a service type so that if a certain service request comes in of that type and action plan is run to implement the requested service. Create a support incident from a service requestA service request is meant to be a quick and easy way to track incoming calls, for more complex requests and support requests, a support incident can be created to manage this incident (Support incidents are part of the CMS service application and are not included in the contact center application).

Outbound call center Generate target lists for outbound callingThe user is able to use the powerful and intuitive searching capabilities of the Pivotal platform to create static lists of potential targets for an outbound call campaign. Once the targets are defined, a marketing project is linked to these targets and call lists are generated based on the selected static list or project. CSRs pick the next call which is automatically and randomly selected from the list of unassigned calls, these calls could be from multiple campaigns. Track status of outbound call campaignAt any point in time, the administrator is able to view the campaign and track the call statistics using a variety of tools within the campaign and the dashboards and reports available within the system. Stop the call campaignAt any point in time, the manager is able to stop all calls for a particular campaign which would stop CSRs from calling these contacts and stop the campaign.

When the CSR is ready for the next call, they will simple click on a task pad item which will automatically bring the next call on a random basis. A CSR is able to see a list of their incomplete calls (busy, call back later etc…) Run a script for any callWhile generating the call list, a manager can select the default script for this list. Therefore, when the CSR selects a certain call, the script selected by the manager will automatically be run for this call. Automatically mark contacts on Do Not Call listWhen a contact asks not to be called, the user sets the status of the call as “Do Not Call” which will automatically unpdate that contact’s profile with the do not call request. Any pending calls for this contact will be cancelled and marked accordingly, and this contact will no longer be selected in any future call list. Automatic auditing of call parametersAll the call parameters such as start and end date and time, duration, script, contact, time zone, notes, and call status changes are audited to ensure efficient tracking as well as performance metrics. Dashboards and reporting Dashboards that enable quick and easy information retrievalOut of the box dashboards are created with the user in mind so they can see their incomplete calls as well as service requests. The administrator is able to see a status of calls, both inbound and outbound and other performance parameters. Reports that list inbound and outbound callsWhether for a specific user, or for a group of users, reports will list all the call metrics so that performance can be calculated for individuals, team members, and even contacts.

Full audit trailAll import jobs are saved in an audit trail that describes the date, time, user, number of records, and even a summary of the job details. All affected records are tagged with a unique identifier in order to track which records were affected by the import job. Administrative settingsAn administrator can specify the following system-wide settings for the import utility:Chunk size – Use to specify the number of records imported in one chunkFrequency of progress updates (ms) – Use to specify the milliseconds in which the client will be updated about the progress of the importDelete chunks after import – Use to specify whether chunks should be deleted after importDelete status of imported records – Use to specify whether status of records should be deleted after importCheck duplicates in source file – Use to specify whether duplicates in a chunk should be checked during import Batch Duplicate Check Utility Dynamically select duplicate check criteriaEach batch duplicate check job can be different, or the same. The utility allows for defining which fields are to be used as criteria, and these fields are all used to check for possible duplicates. Use exact match or soundexAbility to use an exact match to compare values or to use the soundex algorithm which allows for similar sounding names to be captured. Save duplicate check criteria for reuseThe criteria selected for a duplicate check job can be saved and reused again in other batch duplicate check jobs. Any Pivotal ED table can be checked for duplicatesThe duplicate check utility will work with any table in the Pivotal ED; therefore even customized tables can be checked for possible duplicates. Full Audit trailAll duplicate check jobs are saved in an audit trail that describes the date, time, user, criteria used, and the results. This allows for easy tracking of results. Record Merge Utility Merge duplicate records generated by batch duplicate check utilityThe record merge functionality in built into the workflow of the duplicate check utility so that after finding potential duplicates, the user can easily merge the selected ones. Any number of records can be mergedThe user can select any number of records to be merged into one record; this gives flexibility in cases where data may have come from multiple duplicate systems. Records can be merged in any Pivotal ED tableThe merge utility will function on any table in the Pivotal ED, this includes customized tables. Therefore any one can use this utility on their Pivotal system. Intuitive user interfaceThe merge interface is in an easy to understand format that shows the record to be merged (as columns), and the fields within each of these records (as rows), as well as the merged record which allows the user to easily see the results of the actions they will do. Select winning record with a single clickThe system is designed to allow the user to click where they want to enable them to easily choose the winning record and winning fields in many different ways. This makes the system very easy to use. Smart merge functionalityThe smart merge automatically selects records with non-empty values as the winning records. This makes the merge selection even easier to use as most of the work is already done for the user. Concatenate memo fieldsThe user is able to merge all the memo fields from all the records to be merged and put them into a single memo field in the merged record. This is a choice that is allowed during the merge configuration. Automatic re-linking of child tablesAll child tables from the losing records will be merged changed to point to the newly merged record. This allows for data integrity to be maintained. Choose to delete or retain losing recordsThe user can either delete the losing records, or retain it in an unusable format that cannot be viewed by other users. In either way, an undo is possible. Ability to exclude secondaries from the mergeThe user can choose not to merge specific secondaries from the losing records to the winning record. By default all secondaries from the losing records are associated with the winning record. Ability to undo any record mergesThe utility allows for the user to undo the record merge that was performed, restoring the losing records and removing the merged record. Block unauthorized tablesThe ability to block tables from being merged keeps the data and system tables safe. This utility also functions within the realm of view filters in security. Full Audit TrailAll merge jobs are saved in an audit trail that describes the date, time, user, records, and results. This allows for easy tracking of results. Formula Updater (Record tickler utility) Batch updates of formulasRecalculate all formula fields in a selected table in batch. The user selects the table, and the system does the rest. Tickle toolBecause this utility updates all records in a table, it can be used as a tickling tool for tables. Update Child tablesNot only will the tables be updated, but the option to update child tables is also included. Bulk Delete Utility Bulk delete records from the Pivotal EDA user can bulk delete records returned in a static list, user search or system search from any table in the Pivotal ED. This feature enables a user to target a specific set of records for deletion. Instant or scheduled execution of bulk delete jobA bulk delete can be run immediately or scheduled for a later point in time. This feature provides the flexibility to run the bulk delete job automatically after hours. Cognisance of linked interactionsThe bulk delete utility delinks the interactions, emails, appointments, tasks, and meetings, from the deleted records. However, it does not delete the linked interactions so other records that exist the Pivotal ED can continue to be linked to the interactions. Data can be deleted from any Pivotal ED tableEven if the system is highly customized and contains many custom tables, the bulk delete utility will allow the deletion of data from these tables. Any table in the ED can be deleted from. Complete audit trailAll bulk delete jobs are saved in an audit trail that provides a summary of the job details which provides for an tracking of results.
Workflow template management Create, manage, and copy workflow template and template stepsA user with sufficient permissions is able to create workflow templates which contain workflow template steps which contain items. The user is able to edit, delete, and make a copy of the current workflow template so that it can be reused again. A workflow template is assigned to a target entity and the copy can be assigned to a new entity. Create, manage, and copy workflow template stepsEach workflow template consists of many workflow template steps. The order of these steps can be sequential or can use branching between steps to represent a more complex business process. Each step can be copied, deleted, saved, and modified as the user needs. Create and manage data or check list items for each stepWhile defining a workflow step, the user can create items that must be completed in order to complete this step. These items could be a simple check box that indicates activity is done, or could be a data entry field that must be populated for that step to be done. Each item can be set to mandatory or optional Automatic assignment of stepsEach workflow template step can be assigned to an individual or to a department. When applying the workflow, the steps are then automatically assigned to the selected party. Email notification settingsA user can set email notifications to be sent out to the owner of each step upon completion of the previous step, or upon initiation of the previous step, or the email notifications can be switched off completely. . Integration with other systemsEach step allows for a dynamically populated URL to be shown while that step is being handled by the assigned party. This allows for simple URL based integrations to be done with the step. Fields from the target entity can be inserted into the URL string to allow for parameters in the URL. Validation tool for templatesAt the completion of the template design, the user can have the system validate the steps to ensure that this template has no problems and can be applied to the selected entity. Once this validation is completed, the template can then be run on target entities. Running client scripts with stepsA client script can be attached to run when a step is started or completed, this allows for more complex workflow to be attached to each step if necessary. Applying Workflow Apply workflow to major application entitiesThe out of the box AWM6.0 application applies workflows to companies, contacts, leads, and opportunities. A customizer can add links and some workflow to apply it to any other custom entity within the system. Dashboards to manage queuesDashboards can be used to manage the queue of steps for each employee or department. This allows the end users to be able to quickly see any steps assigned to them and to quickly navigate to them and deal with them.
