Streamlined creation and management of customers, contacts, leads and


opportunities
Oracle Sales supports management of B2B and B2C customers. Leads can be created
manually, imported via Oracle Marketing, generated by TeleSales Agents, Marketing
campaigns and Sales Campaigns. Oracle Sales assists in tracking these leads and routing
them to the appropriate sales representatives thus enabling the conversion of leads to
opportunities. Sales representatives can then update opportunity details and track
opportunity progress.
Competitor tracking
Competitor information such as name, product and win/loss status can be included within
each opportunity at the product level. Additionally, Oracle Sales has defaulting
capabilities that match products in the opportunity to potential competitor products.

Convenient customer analysis


Important customer information is integrated into the leads and opportunities pages in
Oracle Sales. While working on leads or opportunities, you can view information such as
a list of recent opportunities and a recent Service Request Backlog. This provides you with
background information on the account as you develop leads and opportunities.

L Sales: Benefits
d
e
ag Oracle Sales brings the users closer to their most pertinent information. By eliminating

intermediate steps and clicks, a salesperson may maximize productivity by spending less time
navigating the application, and more time with customers and prospects.
The sales dashboard allows sales representatives the ability to view their business activities and
prioritize their workload. By displaying business activity information in one location,
salespeople can locate a specific activity and quickly navigate to the specific activity within the
application.
Enterprise applications are often developed to meet the needs of many customers across
multiple industries. Organizations and their respective industries have varied approaches to
business and application needs. The ability to select and remove application segments not
applicable to the implementing organization's focus will simplify the application and allow the
users to focus on necessary information for the organization.
Additionally, enterprise applications often will use industry standard terminology, not
necessarily applicable to a particular organization. Personalization allows each customer to use
terminology specific to their organization, thus reducing the time necessary to train new users.

d
e
ag Oracle TeleSales is an application designed for interaction center professionals, whether they

are inbound or outbound telesales agents. The application provides a versatile set of tools to
manage the sales cycle, from prospecting to booking orders. Oracle TeleSales offers a true
multi-channel selling and servicing solution that leverages all channels. The eBusiness Center
within Oracle TeleSales offers a complete cross-application tool for all Oracle call center
applications. The eBusiness Center provides elements of Service and Collections for an
unparalleled customer view. Key functions include contact, lead, opportunity, quote, and order

an opportunity or converting a lead to an opportunity, can be performed in the Action
section of the window. The work queue serves as a launch pad for the rest of the
application. For example, select a lead to view and edit, click the Get Work button, and
the lead opens in the Lead Center, where you can work directly on the lead selected.
