Product Catalog

The Gotransverse Product Catalog enables you to maintain product information and pricing for all products and services that you offer. You can quickly create new products, set pricing rules, and define relationships and dependencies that determine what is sold.

Designed to be flexible, the Product Catalog allows for multiple product and service configurations that help you meet business objectives and manage your customer's ever-changing buying behavior.

GTV's Product Catalog provides you with the ability to:

  • Define tiered and tapered pricing models that include multiple currencies, pre and post-paid products, additional fees and taxes, quantity based products, usage charge rules, and allowances.
  • Offer cross service and account discounts that are percentage based or flat amount.
  • Associate related products together for bundling or cross-sell through parent, child, recommended, and incompatible product relationships.
  • Create price lists for various distribution channels and market segments.
  • Define custom fields such as license keys or third-party service contract numbers.
  • Synchronize product details across CRM. For many of our customers, GTV is the Product Catalog of record. We also offer the flexibility to use another system for the product catalog that interacts with GTV via open API.
