It is a good idea and a best practice to record every possible new Opportunity since it has a direct impact on your revenue. Creating and maintaining diligent records for Opportunities or Sales Leads helps your Center Manager, Sales Owner, or Call Center Executive have access to the latest information so that they can easily follow up with the guest and try to complete the sale.
Important: You can create an Opportunity only at the Center level because this is where your actual business is and this is where you get your revenues. At the Organization level, you can view and track Opportunities and view appropriate Reports to help you in day-to-day activities to aid you in converting these Opportunities to actual sales.
To create a new Opportunity or a Sales Lead
- Ensure that you have selected the Center in which you intend to create a new sales opportunity.
- Navigate to Sales > Tracking > Opportunities > Click Add.
The Create New Opportunity page appears with General tab view.

If this Opportunity is for a new guest, click the Add Guest icon. Enter details such as First Name, Last Name, Email, Phone, Gender, and Referral.
Note: The Referral reasons are configured from Admin > Categories > Referrals.
Note: Though none of the fields are marked Mandatory (*), it is a good idea to try and persuade the guest to give all details so that tracking and follow-up is easier.
Sales Owner: Select the Sales Owner for this Opportunity from the drop-down list of employees. The application automatically pulls up the list of employees for the Center. If there are many employees in the list, use the search box to type-in the name and search for a specific employee.
Note: To ensure that the Sales Owner knows about a new Opportunity that is assigned to them, you need to configure settings to send automated notifications to the Sales Owner/Employee.
Priority: Select priority as either High, Medium, or Low.
Example: If the guest appears to be a high spender, you may want to set the priority at High just so that this Opportunity has higher visibility and is not missed out in Reports.

Others. Example: If the guest or caller inquired about Gold Membership, select Membership as the Type.
Sales Stage: Select the current stage of the Opportunity such as Prospect, Lead, Active, On Hold, Won, or Lost.

Center Manager or the Sales Owner needs to educate the guest about
their Memberships and Packages.

Package, Service, or Product, but has indicated that you can call back in a
week for a follow-up.

They may be interested in some of our other Packages about hair treatments. Inform the guest about the packages during a follow-up call.
