MARKETING + SALES METRICS FROM BIG DATA |

Big Data is the latest buzz word to describe the volumous amount of 0's and 1's that exist within the computers of an organization. If you have the depth, breadth, capacity and skills to mine this data, there are nuggets of gold just waiting to be found.  Organizations need to invest in intelligence and analytics in order to make the right decisions.  And the management of selling is no longer about a silo-built data using a CRM tool, conducting ad-hoc coaching or the dreaded weekly forecast call with each rep.  Real sales performance improvement and buyer behaviors requires an integrated platform known as Revenue Portfolio Management™ built on the foundation of big data sets.

 

(RPM) is a business support tool, to provide chief executives, sales and marketing management and customer facing representatives with comprehensive data portals to support the management of each buyer opportunity with the exact sales strategy required to maximize sales effectiveness and efficiency (productivity) to accelerate opportunity conversion.

It's time to audit | align | accelerate.

Plain and simple, sales performance outcomes are a function of "garbage in... garbage out" and today, organizations spend significant amounts of money on CRM tools to capture prospect and customer data.  Marketing dollars are spent on building the brand and generating demand.  Ad-hoc sales training is initiated only to find out none of these solve the real problem. Predictable revenue growth through better opportunity management.

 

Are you driving a profitable "sales cycle", or a poorly qualified and premature "buying cycle" ?  Are your sales people chasing tennis balls, responding to customer demands with eternal optimism or do they need help in better qualifying the customer? 

Freeing up the sales force for selling |

McKinsey's Silicon Valley Office, principal Olivia Nottebohm explains how viewing sales operations across an organization isn’t easy, nor is implementing changes that affect the entire  sales process. Yet the more sales operations can be streamlined and back-office overlaps reduced, the more likely customer satisfaction will improve as deals close quickly and disputes are resolved promptly.  At major companies, the results can often be of millions of dollars in higher revenues and lower costs.  Such benefits speak for themselves.
