Bus/Financial
German term or phrase: AT; o.B.; Preisverkauf
Since each of these appears in a table generated by a SWOT (Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats) analysis, there isn't much context.
For AT/o.B.: "Partnerschaft Kleinmaschinen (Innauen)--in Verbindung mit Verkauf/AT in Personalunion (macht kl. Wartungen o.B.)" This appears as a company's strength, if that helps. I'm assuming that AT stands for a department or area of responsibility w/in the company. I know o.B. is usually "ohne Befund," but that makes no sense to me here.
Finally, there's "Preisverkauf," which stands alone under the opportunities section. I need a definition, here.
Thanks!

English translation:AT = Aussertariflich - o.B = ohne Berechnung - Preisverkauf = price competition
Explanation:
"Personalunion" usually means that one person carries out two not necessarily normally connected functions. In this case the AT (saleried employee, sales - not covered by the same wage agreement as the service department) would do minor service work on the equipment during his sales call. The customer would not be charged for this service = o.B. Preisverkauf sounds like one alternative to improve the situation would be to start cutting prices.
