An perspective is a particular rendering of the IBM Sales Center that contains a predefined combination of views and editors. There are two perspectives in the IBM Sales Center, the Order Capture and Web Browser perspectives, that allow you to accomplish different sets of tasks. Both perspectives can be open and visible, but only one can be active at a time.

The Order Capture perspective is used to create and manage orders, quotes, customers, and organizations as well as to view and work with merchandising associations, marketing promotions, and ticklers. It is the default perspective that opens each time you log on to the IBM Sales Center and it is where you do the majority of your work.

B2B directNote: Organizations and the Organization Administration Console apply to B2B direct stores only.

The Web Browser perspective includes a toolbar that links you directly to WebSphere Commerce management pages: the Organization Administration Console and WebSphere Commerce Accelerator. Your administrator determines if you need to access these pages for any of your tasks.

You can change a perspective's layout by opening and closing views or by moving them to different positions. You can save the changes to the perspective, and this customization becomes the default look.
