Sign Up for a Trailhead Playground with Salesforce CPQ
In this project, you’ll:
- Create a Trailhead Playground with Salesforce CPQ.
- Construct a bundle to group related products that need to be sold as a set.
- Create an Alert Product Rule that warns sales reps when they might be making a mistake.
- Create a Selection Product Rule that hides a product when it’s not needed.
- Create a Validation Product Rule that stops sales reps from quoting an unsupported combination of products.
In this project you get to use Salesforce CPQ to create a sophisticated product bundle that helps sales reps quote quickly and accurately. A bundle is simply a set of products that are always sold together. What makes it sophisticated is that CPQ allows you to create Product Rules to make sure your sales reps avoid common mistakes when choosing which products to sell in the bundle. This ensures that your customers get the right products as soon as possible.
Our story focuses on AW Computing, a company that’s venturing into new markets by selling home security systems that include things like cameras and door sensors. The sales reps are not familiar with the new product offerings, so as the admin at AW Computing, it’s your job to make sure they can sell these systems correctly from day one.
