Sales & Support

Sales & Support is the business function or domain that plans and performs the day-to-day sales and customer support activities. The primary objective of Sales & Support is to create customer demand of any kind, within defined service levels and revenue objectives.

Operational Processes

The daily operational sales and support activities are grouped in 4 level-1 Processes

  • Plan - The planning of resources to sell products and services and support customers
  • Sell - The selling of products and services to customers and partners
  • Contract - The development, negotiation and closing or acceptance of customer contracts
  • Assist - Providing support to customer inquiries, issues and complaints

OpenReference recognizes 4 major sales & support configuration strategies:
