FAQ: Opportunities

What is an Opportunity?

An Opportunity is a potential deal, or project, that has been identified as having a high probability of converting successfully. Opportunities are the result of successful leads, who are contacts that have expressed some interest in your service. Opportunities allow you to create a scope of work, generate an estimate, present a proposal, and engage in contract negotiations—all without using one of your company's Project Starts.

Once an Opportunity has been successfully closed or "won", it can be converted to a Project. This conversion signifies that a sales agreement has been reached between the client(s) and your company.
