Up and cross-selling only makes sense if the suggestion will match the buyer’s needs, otherwise you could even lose the entire sale! When you’re renting out a car, for example, it doesn’t make sense to suggest a scaffolding tube as an additional rent. In order to assure your suggestions make sense, it is important to analyze data and to find valid suggestions. Based on historical sales data it is possible to see which products and services are often sold together. PowerBI is an interesting tool which can be used to help visualize this (PowerBI and Rental Management are also discussed in previous spotlight items).
Setting up Up- and Cross-selling in Dynamics Software Rental Management
On the Released product (variant) in Dynamics Software Rental Management, it is possible to set up supplemental items, which will be used as the suggestions for up-/cross-selling.
Per product, it is possible to determine a specific kit of supplemental items. This list can contain sales items, services and even other rental products. For each line in the Kit list, it can also be determined if this is an optional or mandatory product. Also, another setup can be determined like pricing and fixed/maximum quantities.
