This module introduces the tracking and management features of the Sales module in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Instead it provides a framework around which an organisation can build a custom sales process.
This module describes the components of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM sales process. It also details the entities or record types Microsoft Dynamics CRM uses to track sales from potential to close. With this information, organisations can determine which aspects of the sales process framework are appropriate for them.
In Microsoft Dynamics CRM, qualified leads, such as those that have estimated revenue associated with them, become opportunities. When a prospect or customer expresses qualified interest in buying the business' products or services, that prospect or customer is considered an opportunity. This is an important part of the sales process because this is where the sales team spends most of its time and effort. The process of working on an opportunity may include several customer interactions. How well the sales team manages this stage can mean the difference between a win and a loss.
This course describes the role of the product catalog in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the benefits of using it. It shows the tasks that are required to configure a product catalog, including setting up and maintaining unit groups, products, and price lists. It also describes and demonstrates the important role of the product catalog and price lists in the sales process.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides tools that capture important sales information and uncover new business opportunities. Although quotes, orders, and invoices are important to the sales process and provide a complete view of the customer, implementing a sales process allows users to initiate, track, and close sales consistently and efficiently.
The product catalog in Microsoft Dynamics CRM helps companies build a central repository for managing products, services, charges, and fees. The tasks required to set up a product catalog include setting up and maintaining unit groups, products, and price lists. Microsoft Dynamics CRM also supports discount lists, which help companies provide customers with incentives to buy more products.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM uses two record types known as Goal Metrics and Goals. These record types combine to provide a powerful, flexible set of goal management features. Goal management allows organisations to track individual, team, and organisational progress toward specific goals.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes a comprehensive set of features that increases the efficiency of customer service operations.

Customer service is important to a customer relationship management strategy. Microsoft Dynamics CRM provides many features that organisations can use to manage the services they provide to customers. This module discusses cases and how the cases can be used together in service management functions.
Most customer service organisations use a knowledge base to provide customer service representatives (CSRs) with the information that they must have to answer questions about a product or service. In Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the Knowledge Base provides a central repository for an organisation's information, stored as Articles and organised by Subject.
A queue is an area that is used to organise and store activities and work items that are waiting to be processed. A queue is also used for activities and work items that are currently being worked on. Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes queuing and workflow tools to improve how incoming requests for sales, marketing, and customer service are handled.
