How much time do you think your salespeople spend focused on activities directly related to driving revenue?
How much should you spend to find out?
It may sound obvious enough, but studies have shown that individual productivity or lack thereof is the #1 business problem facing most sales organizations. Hours wasted on calls and activities not directly related to driving opportunities and creating revenue.
To address these productivity concerns, companies are spending hundreds of millions of dollars with vendors marketing Sales Force Automation "solutions." Money and effort that for the most part, are wasted as three out of four Sales Force Automation projects never complete (source: Gartner Group).
Why? For a very simple reason – these "solutions" complicate what should be a simple process: managing relationships and opportunities.
