Opportunities

Overview

Opportunities represent potential sales orders or business development opportunities for companies. In Core CRM, if you have determined there are potential sales to be made for prospects, you can go ahead and create opportunities for them detailing what you are expecting them to purchase, when they might purchase and how big the purchase is going to be. Typically, after the leads have been contacted and qualified, an opportunity is created to track the potential sales. You can then create proposals to email the prospects and negotiate the sales. After the life cycle of opportunity is completed, you generally indicate a closed-won or closed-lost opportunity stage. As these opportunities are won, they lead to various projects wherein the earlier leads and prospects now become your clients. Click to watch this video on managing opportunities in Core.

Creating opportunities adds potential sales to the sales pipeline and, therefore, puts it on the radar of the sales managers, who may be holding the team responsible for the progress of opportunities. You can create a list of stages for your opportunities to indicate the current status of an opportunity, e.g., whether an opportunity is ongoing or closed. This custom list is useful in identifying various completion stages of opportunities from prospects to clients. You can also create a list of opportunity types, e.g., New Business, Existing Business, etc. When an opportunity arises, it is helpful for sales representatives or business development agents to classify or categorize the opportunity. Commissions and sales goals both are dependent on the opportunity amount that is won by the sales team. Sales Goals uses the opportunity amount won to calculate if the sales person met the periodic goals. On the other hand, commission is calculated for the sales person based on the primary quote associated with the opportunities won.

Note: You can get a visual overview of this feature in Core from the CRM flowchart.

Opportunities > Create Opportunity >
Opportunity Name Name of the opportunity expected from a prospect.
Type The type (e.g., new business, existing business, renewal, etc.) of opportunity can be selected from the drop-down list. You can create various opportunity types in the CRM lists.
Prospect This is the prospect associated with the opportunity. If an opportunity is converted to a project, this prospect becomes the client of that converted project.
Description Description or other information about the opportunity, say additional licenses.
Priority You can set a priority for the opportunity, e.g., High, Critical or Low. It allows you to prioritize a set of opportunities. You can create customized priority values in the CRM lists.
Assigned To This is the sales person to whom the opportunity is assigned. It gets pre-filled by the prospect's Assigned To value by default.
Opportunity Value Monetary value or worth of an opportunity.
Probability % Current possibility of winning the opportunity. This value is in percentage, say 50%. By default, it is set to 25%, but you can change it. You can quickly update the probability of an opportunity later using the Update Probability option from the row-action menu in list view.
Forecast Forecast refers to the revenue that you expect from the opportunity. It represents the monetary value of an opportunity.
Target Date The realistic close date by which you want to win the opportunity. It represents a deadline for an opportunity. It is set as one month later by default, but can be changed as needed.
Expiration Date Calculated as the last expected close date, the opportunity's expected or actual close date.
Sales Goals You can associate the relevant sales goal with the opportunity. This is needed to calculate the Actual Amount and % Realized values after an opportunity is won.
Project Template Select a template for the project to be created if the opportunity is won. You can also select project templates for opportunities that are not won yet so as to be able to track the time and expenses spent while working on those opportunities.
Project Select a project or create a new project for the opportunity, whether won or in-progress so as to be able to track the time and expenses spent while working on that opportunity.
Unlink Project After selecting a project here, you can unlink it. Unlinking a project results in your inability to log time and expenses for that opportunity. You are given the option to Update Project Status and then unlink it.
Other Details: Stage The current stage of an opportunity in terms of sales, e.g., ongoing, won or lost.
Status Current status of an opportunity based on the sales process, say Active or Inactive.
Promotion Promotion refers to the promotion or promo code that you want to associate with the opportunity. E.g., There could be an opportunity to sell TV sets to a prospect by offering a discount using a promotion code. You can create various promotions and discounts in the Promotions screen.
Campaign The campaign name, if any, from which the opportunity originated or which you want to associate with the opportunity.
Competition Name of the competitor for the opportunity.
Next Step You can write quick notes about the opportunity here such as related calls, emails, tasks, etc. You can also mention the succeeding stage of the opportunity's sales cycle.
Contacts: Primary Contact You can select the primary contact for this opportunity from the drop-down. The list contains the contacts that you have set in the Prospects screen.
Conclusion: Closed On Date when the opportunity is closed, whether it was won or lost.
Closed Amount Amount at which the deal is finalized or closed with the prospect. It can be the proposal or quote amount, forecast amount or any other amount. If the opportunity stage is set as 'Lost', the closed amount is automatically zero. If the opportunity is won and converted to a project, the closed amount becomes its contract amount.
Loss Reason In case the opportunity is lost, then you can provide a reason for that loss. This field is available only when the Stage field is set to Lost.
Opportunities > General > Details >
History Core saves the change history for opportunities. The attributes that are tracked by the history include Priority, Stage, Status, Opportunity Value, Probability, Forecast, Target Date, Expiration Date, Sales Goal, Next Steps, Closed On, Closed Amount, etc. Core also adds automatic notes when any of these attributes change, e.g., “Sally changed the target date from 4/15/2021 to 5/7/2021”.
Opportunities > Proposals >
Proposal Name

This is the unique display name of a proposal. It can be numbers, letters or a combination of both.

Primary When there are multiple proposals, you can indicate which one is most likely going to be approved by the prospect. It might not be the most recent one. Only one proposal can be indicated as 'primary' and it cannot be made inactive.
Amount Total amount quoted on a proposal, which includes services, expenses, subtotals, discounts and taxes.
Opportunities > Quotes >
Primary

When there are multiple quotes, you can indicate which one is most likely going to be approved by the prospect. It might not be the most recent one. Only one quote can be indicated as 'primary'.

Core marks every new quote as primary for a specific opportunity. If there is only one quote for an opportunity, it is set as the primary quote by default.

Amount Total amount mentioned on a quotes, which includes services, expenses, subtotals, discounts and taxes.
Quote ID It is the primary, unique identifier of a quote that is used for reference. A quote is generated for internal use and, therefore, should not repeat.
Created By This is a read-only field that is pre-filled with the logged-in user.

It can be the contingency expenses for the quote.


Opportunities > Mark as Won/Convert to Project >

Closed On Date

Date when the opportunity is closed, whether it was won or lost.

Closed Amount

Amount at which the deal is finalized or closed with the prospect. It can be the proposal or quote amount, forecast amount or any other amount. If the opportunity stage is set as 'Lost', the closed amount is automatically zero. If the opportunity is won and converted to a project, the closed amount becomes its contract amount.

Project Options
  • Don't create new project: You can choose not to create any new project from this won opportunity. You can do that later, if needed.

  • Keep linked project: If the opportunity already has a project linked to it, you can keep the linked project. You are prompted to update the project details, if needed.

  • Create new project: Create a new project based on this opportunity option if you want to convert this won opportunity into a project. With this, you can also choose to convert the associated prospect contacts to client contacts and create a new budget from the quote.

Create Project:

from Template

If you are creating a new project using a template, Core pre-fills the selected project template as the default template for this opportunity (you can change this template, if needed).

Client

Client associated with the project. Prospective Client is the default client of a project created from an opportunity while it is in-progress and not won yet. If an opportunity is converted to a project, its prospect becomes the client of that converted project.

Manager

Person who manages the project. You can assign employees as well as vendors (contract employees and outside consultants) as project managers. Core auto-fills the project manager with the same ID as the client manager, if you leave it blank.

Contract Type

It determines the billing arrangement for a project. Whether a project is billed per hour, lump sum, or not billed at all, it is a best practice to record time and expenses against it to take advantage of the project management features in Core.

Contract Amount

This is the total consideration for the project (billable and non-billable Service Amount + non-billable Expense Amount). You can include or exclude billable expenses and taxes in this amount, depending on how you bill. Although contract amount is required for fixed-type contracts, it is a good practice to set it for hourly projects as well. When you enter the contract amount, the Service Amount gets pre-filled by this entire amount by default. You can then manually assign some portion of it to the Expense Amount.
A project's contract amount is preserved when an invoice is processed. If the contract amount is increased after creating an invoice, past invoices continue to use the original contract amount.
Contract amount for a parent project can be allocated to its child projects using the % of Project value. Example: If the contract amount of a main or parent project, NET-001, is $100,000 and Phase A is 60% of the total project, then Core assigns $60,000 to NET-001:A.
You can also change the original contract amount and recalculate it on a percentage basis using the Project Settlement calculator.

Project Settlement

Core provides an option to calculate and record a settlement amount for a project. You can access the Project Settlement Amount screen via the Projects detail view > Actions menu. Here, you can set a settlement amount as a percentage of the initial contract amount. The Contract Amount value of the project is recalculated based on the Percentage you enter here. For example, if the initial contract amount was $10,000 and you entered 50% as the settlement percentage, Core recalculates the contract amount to $5000. This percentage value is stored and can be viewed later for reference.

Update Client

You can convert the associated prospect contacts to client contacts. When a project is already linked with the opportunity, this is not needed as linked project can be with any client. You can update client contacts only in case they are converted from prospects.

Create Budget

You can create a new budget from the service and expense line items found on the quote. On creating a budget from the quote, it takes the fee schedule selected for the primary quote as well.

Merge Entries

If you are creating a new project for the opportunity marked as won (which already had a linked project), you can choose to merge the time and expense entries from the old project to the new one being created now.

Mark Opportunities as Won

Opportunities can be won or lost. When opportunities are won in the CRM, projects can be created, worked on and eventually billed based on the proposals or quotes. The prospects become clients in this process and their contacts can be converted to client contacts. When you close the opportunities and mark them as 'won', Core allows you to create the associated projects based on the opportunities and budgets from the service and expense line items found on the primary quote. If opportunities already have a project linked to them and then get won, you can keep the linked projects or create new ones for them. You do have the option to merge entries from the old projects to the new projects.

Note: If a prospect is already a client and has a default fee schedule, it auto-inherits the record here. You can still edit it as needed.  

To mark an opportunity as won, watch this video or follow these steps:

      1. Open the Opportunities screen from the side menu > CRM > Opportunities.

        opportunities_mark_won.png

Convert Opportunities to Projects

Opportunities can be won or lost. Whether opportunities are won in the CRM or still in-progress, projects can be linked to the opportunities, worked on and eventually billed based on the proposals or quotes. The prospects become clients in this process. Core prompts you to create projects from scratch or templates based on the opportunities won. These converted projects inherit the opportunity attributes, but you can change the values later. If a project template is selected for the opportunity, the project phases are included in the conversion.     

Note: If a prospect is already a client and has a default fee schedule, it auto-inherits the record here. You can still edit it as needed.
