At a Glance

After implementation of Simplus CPQ, MuleSoft was able to streamline the approval process. A manager can pick up the phone, have all applicable data right there, make a decision quickly, and send it all back through the automated approval process.

Mulesoft faced these two main challenges:


  • Approval Hierarchy: Mulesoft had a highly complex approval process for orders. The approval process was based on multiple conditions, project type, legal parameters, and routing.
  • Lack of Administrative Expertise: Mulesoft lacked the know-how for deploying effective rules and restrictions to drive residual business value.

The Solution

  • Platinum Support Products: Due to the complexity of Mulesoft’s approval hierarchy, Simplus built a Visualforce page to contain approval outlets. Simplus then built 45 advanced approval rules and 15 Platinum Support Product rules, both of which require custom construction so as to not appear a part of the natural Salesforce record. This build was consolidated into 12 easy-to-understand approval milestones within the Visualforce page.

The Results

  • Successful Approvals: Mulesoft saw a significant increase in the number of successful approvals. Every approval received was delivered to the right person at any given time.
  • Streamlined Processes: The support made the approval process much more efficient. A manager can pick up the phone, have all of the applicable data in front of them instantly, and quickly make a decision to approve or decline a deal. From there, it automatically goes back down the approval process funnel.
  • Quoting: The approval process made quoting so reliable that sales reps are able to dictate the parameters of a deal while still maximizing the value of the product being sold.
