Nimbus allows you to configure different discount percentages on departments for each customer type. This means each customer type will get discount according to the discount configured on department for its type.
Consider this example: You have defined two customer types: Gold and Silver, and you deal in five departments (product lines). You now configure various percentages on your departments and attach them to customer type Gold. The Gold type customers will then get discount according to the discount percentage configured for each department.
Similarly, for Silver customer type you can configure different percentages for each department. The Silver customer types will get discount accordingly.
