Product information

audius:GreenTec provides electrical engineering companies with industry-specific business processes based on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales, Customer Service, and Field Service. The workflows are designed around the sale of power generation products, such as photovoltaic systems, solar modules or storage units, and the provision of related services, including installation, customer service, and maintenance.  

audius:GreenTec offers established processes for sales qualification, quotation and order processing, and the invoicing of products and services – the processes expected of a ‘typical’ CRM system – with the added value of industry-specific attributes for the photovoltaic and solar power industry.  

Key components include the profitability calculation and final costing of a planned photovoltaic system (solar modules, inverters, and storage), grant approval administration, and subcontractor management.

audius| Branchenspezifische audius:GreenTec
Industry-specific quotation and order processing

audius:GreenTec offers optimized workflows for quotation and order processing, including complex price and discount calculations for services and products. The industry-specific product management features are used both for sales and the field service.  

The best-practice business processes and workflows for quotation preparation represent the starting point for the automated process: quotation – order – project – invoice, each element of which includes documents in the customer language. Accepted quotations are converted into orders, which serve as the basis for the power generation equipment installation activities at the customer’s site, managed using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Service.    

The order thus provides the basis for purchase order processing, work preparation, and installation scheduling. Possible subcontractors are now also integrated in planning of the work, and purchase orders are placed with suppliers.

Opportunity Management is complemented by analysis methods and the Miller Heiman Group’s Funnel ScoreCard® to facilitate strategic decision making.

audius| Wirtschaftlichkeitsberechnung und Nachkalkulation
Profitability calculation and final costing

The profitability calculation and final costing for the solar and photovoltaic systems are completed on the basis of the quotations. These include the investment costs for a system, possible grants, time periods, and other important key figures such as tariffs, degradation, energy self-consumption, or profitability.  

Profitability is calculated using the net present value method. A planned profit and loss statement is also possible.

audius| Subunternehmen in die Geschäftsprozesse einbinden
Integration of subcontractors within business processes

If subcontractors are integrated in company-specific processes during the planning of a photovoltaic system, they can be referenced at the lead or sales opportunity stage and definitely when preparing quotations and orders. These references form the basis of proactive activity management and, if required, data exchange or partner access to relevant content in the CRM system. Engineer qualification management, documentation of work performed on an installation, and the associated acceptance protocols are all relevant in this context for the smooth handling of the planning and installation work as well as for intercompany settlement.

Incorporation of grant approvals within order processing

The existence of grant approvals for a photovoltaic or solar project is an important element in photovoltaic system installation planning because this affects both the advance payments and setting of the installation dates.

Installation planning and processing

Dynamics 365 Field Service is used for the planning and processing of system installations. The Field Service workflows continue the audius:GreenTec business processes for installation of the photovoltaic systems and include resource planning and the reservation of both technology and materials. As part of this, order data is transferred to service orders and the various steps required for system installation are defined and initiated.  

Besides managing the activities leading up to the initial commissioning of a photovoltaic system, audius:GreenTec with Dynamics 365 Field Service can also be used for service and maintenance activities at loyal customers.
