Scenario for Competitors

This scenario provides an example of a business process performed by a sales representative using the competitors view. Your company may follow a different process according to its business requirements.

A sales representative logs into the Siebel Sales application and discovers a newly qualified opportunity. He navigates to the Competitors view to review the competition for the opportunity. One competitor is listed for the deal. The sales representative is not familiar with the company and drills down on the competitor name hyperlink to learn more.

In the Company Comparisons view, the representative can view a side-by-side comparison of his company and the competitor's company as well as comparison of products. He can access competitive intelligence documents compiled by his company about this competitor, and the literature items that the competitor has published.

A colleague in Telesales calls the sales representative and indicates that there is a new competitor trying to win the deal. The sales representative adds the new competitor to the opportunity to allow the sales team to research the new competition.
