Did you know that sales reps typically waste up to 16 hours per week on non-selling tasks?

The New Science of Sales Performance

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 29, 2018
As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study. At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

Taking The Complexity Out Of Sales

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: May 22, 2018
When products are bought off the shelf, they are easy to price. But what happens when every product has to be configured to create an entirely bespoke solution? Our client manufactured sophisticated industrial machinery that needed to be configured to each customer, which made each quote a complex task. Sales teams had to somehow translate the customers' complex requirements into a solution; selecting the right products, features, and components; and ensuring that the end result would be not only compatible but also deliverable. Also, the quote frequently had to include various offer variations and price points. The conversation about pricing could only begin once all of this had been discussed, agreed upon, and approved.
