Make your digital audits personal to your potential customer by including a proposal that's tailored specifically to them. The proposal feature allows you to add your own products into the platform so that they can be included as part of the audit when presented to a client.
Configuring the proposal feature
Before adding your products to the proposal feature within your Prospect account, you first need to configure the feature itself. By default, the proposal feature is enabled for all customers.
In order to configure the proposal feature, you need to access the account settings dashboard by selecting it from the drop-down menu that appears when you tap on your profile picture in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Sales tax rate
Easily configure the sales tax rate in your country, for example in the United Kingdom this should be set to 20 percent for VAT. Set this to the appropriate sales tax rate in your country.
By default, products added will show the first-year cost when presented using the proposal feature. This is calculated based on the monthly cost over a 12-month period. However, it is possible to demonstrate different costs to your client using either:
Annually – shows the cost over a 12-month period
Quarterly – shows the cost over a 3-month period
Monthly – shows the cost on a monthly basis
Weekly – shows the cost on a weekly basis
Price after 1 year – shows the cost for products that may include discounts in the first year*
( for example, if one of your products was discounted for the first 12 months, you can include the cost after the first year in the proposal feature easily).*
Creating a proposal
Your products can be added to the platform for inclusion on the proposal. This is easily done from within the account settings section under the collateral → proposal products & services. Once in the proposal products & services section, select + Add product button. You can then add your products by completing the required fields.
Note: It is only possible to select “Change price after 12 months” if the custom total includes “Price after 1 year”.
Including your products on proposals
When a report has been generated for the business owner, you can easily add your products to the proposal section of the report so that when the client is given their report, they can see the costs involved should they want to purchase any of your products.
To add your products to the proposal:
View the report you want to add the products to
Select the “Proposal” tab – if this is not visible, then an administrator needs to enable the proposal feature first
Assuming there are no products already included in the proposal, you should see a prompt to “Add products” and when clicked, a pop-up will appear that allows you to select the product(s) you want to include in the proposal
Once you have added the product(s) you desire, click “Continue” then you should be shown the editable costs and a notes section
To complete the process once pricing and notes have been confirmed, click “Save” at the bottom.
Sharing reports with the proposal section
Once the proposal feature has been configured and products have been added, it is possible to include the proposal section in any reports that are shared with clients. This is as simple as checking the box when you share the report, and the proposal section will automatically be included on the report.
