SAN JOSE, CA—November 12, 2018—Netformx®, the leader in opportunity-to-quote solutions specifically designed for IT solution and service providers, vendors, and distributors, announced today new and enhanced sales enablement tools that help Partners benefit more systematically and efficiently from Cisco programs. The powerful new Netformx Margin Analysis Tool, and enhancements to the Netformx Partner Incentive Tool, enable Cisco Partners to maximize the profitability of their sales through automation, financial analysis, and efficiency.
The latest addition to the Netformx Suite of Applications, the Netformx Margin Analysis Tool (MAT) provides an innovative, automated way for Cisco Partners to determine end-customer pricing and maximize their margins through accurate cost and sell margin analysis for Cisco Commerce Workspace (CCW) Estimates. Netformx Partner Incentive Tool (PIT) promotion and incentive “what-if” scenarios are cost inputs to the Margin Analysis Tool. By toggling between PIT & MAT, the user can make incentive decisions and then immediately see the impact on an opportunity’s margin. The user sees per-SKU and per-line promotion and incentive impacts as well as descriptions of all cost modifiers.
Further evolving the concept of Explore, Educate and Guide, Netformx Partner Incentive Tool makes it even easier for Cisco partners to identify and incorporate incentive and promotion benefits optimizing their discounts as they analyze CCW Estimates. The new interface provides quick analysis with full visibility of tracked promotions and incentives and summarizes them in plain view on a single-screen. Partners can quickly optimize their understanding of promotions and incentives, thereby improving overall CCW Guided Deal Registration (GDR) approval potential to yield higher GDR win ratios and business results. The PIT exposes promotions and incentives and their cost benefit the Partner otherwise might have missed, overlooked, or discounts lost due to not recognizing the full benefit potential of leveraging them to their fullest capacity.
Partner Incentive Tool V2.0 provides additional sophisticated incentive analysis and insights to drive even more profitability:
Both Netformx Margin Analysis V1.0 and Netformx Partner Incentive Tool V2.0 are generally available starting November 12, 2018. Partners can learn more about the Netformx Partner Incentive Tool at: http://bit.ly/CiscoPIT and the Netformx Margin Analysis Tool at http://bit.ly/CiscoMAT.
The latest Netformx sales enablement tools will be shown at the Cisco Partner Summit, November 13-15 in Las Vegas.
