Quoting of different product types
I am looking for ways others are creating quotes for products of different types. For example my company has a system we sell that includes hardware and software licenses. We also sell services that are set at a certain cost whenever that service is utilized.
I am looking for a way to quote both items out of pipedrive in one quote form. The issue I am not able to overcome is that a hardware and software system needs to show line item cost for each item purchased and a total cost of that system. But I also need to include information on the quote with cost of the other services purchased but not tie that into the total cost of the first system.
One possible thought was to create two separate deals for each client, but that would require duplicating information between the two deals because both items could be discussed in one email by the salesperson.
I am open to any solutions others have implemented for this type of issue.
