PIT v5.2 Update - A new Deal Module - LCI Pipeline Report for Deals & Estimates - VIP37 Updates
Now available with the Partner Incentive Tool (PIT) v5.2 release on February 22, 2021, are several valuable features for AM and PM users of the Partner Incentive Tool and VIP Calculator.
A New Deal Module for Gold Partners
A new Deal Module grants Gold Partners visibility into their repository of Approved Direct Deals cost structures (Distributor Deal details will be available in the coming weeks). This view provides an opportunity to compare the current and potential cost optimizations through further Deal-level PIT analysis.
If you do not see your approved Direct deals, your account manager can assist you or contact email@example.com.
Introducing the Lifecycle Incentive Pipeline Report for Estimates & Deals
For Partners focused on Customer Experience rewards, the Lifecycle Incentive (LCI) Pipeline Report provides the PM with clear insight into Cisco Lifecycle Incentive Reward opportunities for pre-sales and pending-sales funnel activities. Using the PIT repository of collected Cisco Estimates and Approved Deals, the LCI Pipeline Report provides PMs with detailed analysis to:
Identify and track Lifecycle targeted end-customer opportunities, ranked by size, sorted according to Use (Activate) and Adopt categorization
Receive advanced notification of Lifecycle Incentive eligibility within the Partner’s funnel of pre-sales (Estimates) and pending (Approved Deal) sales activities
Create schedules and deliver automatically generated emails with attached reports to Customer Experience (CX) or Customer Success team members
Lifecycle Incentive Pipeline reports differ for Estimates & Deals
Estimate LCI Pipeline Report
Non-Analyzed Estimates carry the flag, “Not Yet Analyzed”
Non-Analyzed Estimates display using the SKU List Price
Analyzed Estimates reflect calculated SKU Costing
Deals LCI Pipeline Report
The report reflects Approved cost values from Cisco
Both reports allow the PM to create and set defined delivery schedules for the automatic emailing of either to applicable Customer Experience (CX) and Customer Success team members for advanced planning and engagement purposes.
Refreshed Dashboard for Lifecycle Notifications on Estimates
AM Users will experience a new dashboard for viewing Estimates and BOMs. This refreshed experience now includes a notifications summary view.
Track the total number of Estimates eligible for Lifecycle Incentive consideration
Filter & Isolate Estimates based on Lifecycle Incentive alignment
Classify Lifecycle SKUs & Quantities within Estimates for advanced notification to your Customer Experience (CX) or Customer Success team members
To access the Dashboard
From the AM Landing Page, find the Lifecycle Incentive line inside the Notification Summary
From the main Estimate listing, trigger the Lifecycle Incentive filter, and see the resulting list of Lifecycle Incentive eligible Estimates.
Trigger a PIT analysis and apply a similar filter keyed to the Lifecycle Incentives to view the specific SKUs within the Estimate.
VIP Calculator is VIP37 Ready
VIP Calculator fully supports the list of SKUs aligned to VIP37 along with the remaining balance of the Transition Period. Cisco retired the VIP bonus calculation for Account Breakaway and Migration Incentive programs, so the matching triggers no longer appear.
Introducing the Internet of Things (IoT) VIP Architecture
Starting with VIP37, Cisco introduced the new IoT subtrack. The IoT Architecture now appears in the Partner Status section of the VIP Calculator and will incorporate SKU calculations where and when applicable according to BOM and Partner held certification.
