Gluing Together the Sales Process

Today, there’s a tool for everything. Technology is helping us find deals faster, and expediting necessary steps of the sales process so they close quicker. Most of them integrate into your CRM where you can access the information.

Make Your Data Work

I may be biased but as the relationship between sales and technology continues to grow stronger, companies with tools like TopOPPS will have a significant competitive advantage. Today, it’s not just about getting the information into the system more efficiently, it’s also about what we do with that information once it’s there.

This did not help. ...

Pipeline Visibility

  Managing the sales pipeline is absolutely one of the most critical processes for a sales manager or sales VP to master throughout their career. The sales pipeline is designed to show all opportunities from newly identified opportunities through opportunities about ready to close. Organizations that fail to have adequate pipeline visibility tend to experience major challenges in accurately predicting future revenue, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the sales team, accelerating deals through the pipeline, and ultimately ending up with inaccurate forecasts and missing their quotas. ...
