Receivables Management for the Long Term

Published By: Aberdeen Group     Published Date: Sep 11, 2012
Customers are the lifeblood of business, but their importance is sometimes forgotten when it comes time to collect payment. For most organizations, accounts receivable is one of the largest assets on the balance sheet. To maintain a competitive position in the market, companies are looking to improve asset-to-cash conversion performance. From the financial supply chain perspective, the goal of the order-to-cash cycle is simple: to translate successful sales into actual financial benefit for the organization.

Email Marketing Can Launch Customer Obsession

Published By: Adobe     Published Date: Nov 02, 2018
Every day, demanding customers, unforeseen competition, and disruptive new technologies hammer home that we have entered the age of the customer, where established business operations no longer work. Yet, most marketing functions still rely on decades-old methods that undermine their ability to create post-digital brand experiences and help their firms become customer-focused. Smart CMOs recognize that it is time to pivot their marketing function around the customer, rather than transactions, sales, their brand, or day-to-day operations. In March 2018, Adobe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the link between email innovation and customer obsession. To explore this topic, Forrester conducted an online survey with 256 US consumers who use personal email and 260 marketing technology and strategy decision makers at US companies with 500 or more employees. We found that email marketing can provide a way to launch customer-obsessed marketing at organizations. In fact, companies t

The New Science of Sales Performance

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 05, 2015
Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

Sales Planning Survey

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 05, 2015
For most large organizations, sales planning is a siloed process. Organizations typically need to analyze multiple years’ worth of data to prepare for planning. There is an even split between organizations that lead the planning process from the top down and those that lead it from the bottom up. Most sales organizations complete the planning process before the beginning of the fiscal year.

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.

Driving Business Growth With Finance-Led, Integrated Business Planning

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 29, 2018
Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.

How to Calculate the ROI of Salesforce.com Backup

Published By: Backupify     Published Date: Jul 15, 2013

For the retail industry, having an adequate sales audit process is crucial to the integrity of financial statements. And innovations like new forms of consumer payments and omni-channel models only add to the complexity.
