Feature List

Flexpricer® CPQ for Salesforce contains lots of great pricing and selling features that run within our proprietary interface – Vision Product Selector.

Many features can be enabled and disabled individually and we recommend enabling only those features that you plan to use as this helps Flexpricer run more efficiently.

Over time, we have renamed some features to improve their consistency with terminology used by Salesforce. The grouping or names of features on older versions of Flexpricer may differ from the grouping and names below.

Please refer to the Legacy Naming Guide for more details.

  3. Up-sell Products recommend suitable alternate products that can be swapped in for the currently selected product to increase the value of an opportunity/quote

Target Total allows a sales users to revise the total amount of an opportunity/quote by automatically spreading a proportionate discount (if the Target Total is lower than the value of the line items) or proportionately increasing the sales price (if the Target Total is higher than the value of the line items) across all line items
  8. Compatible Products highlight products that are compatible (or incompatible) with others
  9. Allowed Quantities restrict the sales user to select only a predefined list of quantities for the product

  4. Pricing Partners allow pre-defined product prices to be used by associating an Opportunity with a secondary Account record that itself uses Contracted or Segmented Account Pricing
  5. Account Pricebooks set pricebooks by accounts rather than opportunities so each time a client orders, you use the right pricebook
  6. Account Discount guarantee a standardised discount to all opportunities on any given account
  7. Dynamic Account Pricelist allows you to search or download a dynamically generated Account price list that includes bespoke products and pricing without having to create a pricebook for each Account
