Your sales reps want to sell. Plain and simple. So, you need to provide them with the tools they need to be successful. It will keep them productive and happy, and it will benefit your business.
Without the right technology and processes, your team will have great difficulty meeting the hurdles of selling in a competitive marketplace. Inaccurate sales forecasting coupled with the challenges of remote selling and working in disparate systems can slow the whole sales process. On top of that, menial and manual administrative chores can detract focus from more valuable income-generating pursuits.
Help your reps be more efficient
According to a Forbes report, sales representatives might invest over half of their work time on administrative tasks that do not generate income. The amount of time spent searching for information, entering sales data, and endlessly repeating tedious manual processes can zap a sales rep’s energy and negatively affect their productivity. Being busy and being productive are not the same. You want your top performers to focus their time on high-value activities.

For example, they can program routine follow-up messages and easily update opportunity records right from Outlook without switching apps.

A unified account view can also uncover new cross-sell or up-sell opportunities, allowing sales reps to add incremental customer value while protecting their most profitable accounts.
Accurate sales forecasting
Having an easy-to-use, centralized system for tracking sales opportunities is the underlying foundation for accurate forecasting. If your solution doesn’t make it easy to enter information, your team will resist using it, and you will never have the information you need for accurate sales projections. This level of insight is essential for organizations with a distributed sales force that crosses multiple territories or lines of business.
Managing a sales pipeline should not be difficult – in fact, the simpler, the better.
