2.) With internal approval
This is more advanced type of proposal. There are three boxes to enter price for each item in proposal.
- First line “Proposed by Specialist” is dedicated to operator, who is making an opening proposal.
- Second line “Approved by superior” is intended for verification by superior operator. By verification, he agrees with price proposal, or he can also change the suggested price.
- Third line “Accepted by customer” is for definitive price confirmation, which customer is willing to accept.
Example of proposal made by operator – helpdesk Specialist:
Helpdesk specialist enters the proposal into CDESK, box Proposed by specialist. Helpdesk specialist can see only box related to him. After filling the data he switches the Solver and also informs him by “Message for new solver”, how he should continue (this message is added into beginning of subject of notification e-mail from CDESK). In this case he should approve the proposal for himself. In whole proposal’s process, this means the Verification.
Example of entering the proposal by superior operator – skipping the first step:
If the proposal is entered by operator who have the authorization to verify the offer, ie. Has the responsibility for proposal, there is no need to fill the first box. He writes the offer to second line “Approved by superior” and the verification can be done immediately.
