There are as many theories on how to improve sales as there are people involved in sales. I don’t think there is a one and single formula. Although currently emerging there is a great tip for increasing sales productivity, which is all about using automation tools like Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, document generation, and e-signature.
There are many automated tools on the market to track productivity gains and results. Computing the most relevant metrics like call rate and win rate, sales cycle length, pipeline conversion rate as well as average number of touches gives immensely valuable insights to adapt the sales process where necessary. Using dashboards to visualize trends, sales representatives can then better understand what works and what doesn’t, why top performers excel and under-performers stay behind.
All daily sales activities are automatically captured and recorded in your Salesforce. With the integrated data visualization tool of the sales enablement platform, managers can then see with one click which sales activity or behavior each individual sales representative is performing in real-time.
Another valuable tip considered to be a great sales productivity booster is document generation.
With smart, cloud-based solutions that integrate with Salesforce, sales teams can be more efficient and have better options than staying behind with the manual processes of yesterday. They can design their templates and click a button—automatically taking all the relevant information from Salesforce, running all data, and putting everything together, to create personalized and branded proposals.
On many occasions, sales reps are spending most of their time and resources creating files and compiling documents. Instead of selling. A solution that simply automates the document generation process is essential and would certainly shorten their sales cycle.
