Why Automate Sales?

Above is a typical conversation that happens with many business owners when they are presented with the opportunity of automating the sales function.

 

As a business leader, digitizing or automating sales is not only about getting a good pulse of sales activities of the business, but also about helping your team be operationally productive.

  • Effective Follow-up – One of the main reasons behind losing sales is poor follow-up. A good CRM with an effective follow-up mechanism helps sales teams to maintain constant interaction with customers and close deals in less time.

 

  • Self Organizing–  Having a central place to gather all the information about a deal and the ability to easily access and update while on the go means CRM is a personal productivity booster for the sales person.

 

  • Team Collaboration – In most of the businesses sales is a team effort. Digitizing sales with a good CRM tools enhances collaboration thereby helping teams to close more deals in less time. 

 

  • Easy Access to Information – Should sales be stopped when a salesperson go on leave? Having easy access to information empowers other team members to serve customers.

 

  • Positive Competition – performance comparison charts/reports shared with team creates a performance oriented culture
