Why use the OpenSolar CRM to mark jobs as won

Indicating which proposals were successful unleashes a hugely valuable set of analyses in SunBiz Advisor. In addition to showing you where you’re most active (people, places, products, prices, segments, lead sources), we will show you where you’re most successful. You can then concentrate your efforts on what is most likely to bear fruit.

Indicating which proposals were successful enables you to track your progress in fulfilling a customer order. It also helps you manage your business.

If you’re using an external CRM, SunWiz can automate the process of automatically mark jobs as won within OpenSolar.

How SunBiz Advisor detects if a job is marked as won

A sale is recorded when one of the following occurs:

  1. the CRM stage is first updated to ‘Installing’ or ‘Maintaining’
  2. a checkbox in the Installing or Maintaining CRM stage is first checked
  3. the customer accepts the online proposal
  4. a system is marked as sold
  5. a few other conditions.

The easiest way to update things is to use the CRM
