Deal Maximizer provides you means to determine if a deal is appropriate based on a set of rules defined by the administrator. Color bands are displayed on the cart to help you determine if a deal is good or not. The feature guides you to present a deal that aligns with your organization's objectives which in turn motivates you to give lesser discounts to fast track the deals. The administrator defines Deal Guidance Rules that are used to rate the deal. Deals can be rated at the header level, such as an opportunity, agreement, or deal. You can also be at the line item level for a quote or a deal. Deal Maximizer takes line item fields like Adjustments, to determine whether the deal is good.

Deal Maximizer allows a user to perform the following tasks:

  • Use Deal Guidance Rules on the cart to improve a deal.

  • View Deal Guidance Rules on the cart.
