Measure sales productivity

To continually nurture your sales team and grow your revenue, tracking sales efforts, successes, and failures is essential. Tools can make a big difference.

Want Consistent Revenue Growth?

The current business landscape does not support a complacent attitude. If you want to succeed in business, it’s vital that you measure sales productivity. Without measurement you can’t ensure you continually evolve and improve. Measuring successes is important so that you can replicate them. But, measuring failures is important, too. Analyzing where things might have gone wrong can ensure that you develop processes and techniques to continually improve. Assessing various elements of your sales pipeline, your forecasting model, individual performance, team cohesion, and how your customers respond to various elements of your sales process can help you continually foster a growth-driven environment within your sales force as well as your entire organization.

Sales Analysis Tools Can Help You Develop a Map for Success

It’s not enough to simply measure sales productivity by tracking your deals on a per deal basis to see what the revenue is per salesperson but you should also look at the data that comes from tracking leads both lost and won to help refine the processes and plan for mentoring individuals so that they can actively work to increase their conversion rates. Tools that track deals also need sales reporting capabilities in order to help your sales team boost their productivity. The right tools will provide helpful insights into where improvements can make an impact. The best sales tools help people refine their schedule, too, so that they can more easily prioritize and be more proactive. Tracking can help you determine where things most often go wrong, too, so that you can leverage the successful sales methods to boost success in other areas. Efficient tools help you track so that you can ensure that opportunities are not lost due to inaction and to help you act when things go wrong in a way that extracts data from those losses in order to prevent the same lost opportunities in the future.

Mobile Tools are Essential in a Competitive Landscape

Salespeople work differently today than they did 10 years ago but many companies are still using sales tools that were developed over a decade ago. If you want to be able to measure sales productivity then people need to have usable and efficient tools. If you want intuitive tools that work the way your people want to work, and that work the way your industry demands you work, you should evaluate options that have many features and benefits in the mobile productivity department. If you don’t yet have a solid understanding of the entire sales process, get feedback from your top salespeople on what they need in a sales tool so that you can choose something that will benefit your entire organization.
