Avaya One Source
Avaya One Source speeds quoting and ordering of all Avaya solutions through more efficient pricing, processes and tools. New automation capabilities, real-time access to standardized pricing, and an integrated and centralized Web-based system significantly reduces order cycle times, enabling channel partners to deliver quicker responses to customers. Avaya One Source will be available to all 9,000 Avaya Connect channel partners.
Key Avaya One Source features include:
•A convenient One Source 'Landing Page' consolidates access to all catalogs and pricing files, quote tools and special pricing requests -- as well as the ability to securely place and view orders -- into a single, password-protected site.
•An integrated quoting and ordering system unifies all solution pricing(1) within a single Web-based location, equipped with electronic ordering and shopping carts, as well as new automation capabilities to deliver more accurate, real-time pricing in minutes. Partners can also share quotes with distributors via the Web, and have VPN-less access to quotes and ordering for a speedier, more productive quote-to-order process.
•Simplified global pricing and discounting reduces 1,400 Avaya material price groups to 13 and combines over 200 separate pricing catalogs into one. Standardized global pricing and discounting -- including graduated discounting based on partner level -- helps ensure pricing consistency and clarity across every region.
