Optimizing sales processes and the Sales Playbook
Hand on heart: Does your sales process really work? Or do you suspect you’re missing out on profit?
Do you feel that you have to reinvent the wheel for every project? Maybe because your sales process lacks definition and documentation? Are responsibilities clear to all?
What about assessing potentials? Do you have a comprehensive overview of all prospects, projects and their development stage? Can you estimate a realistic bottom-line at any time?
In this situation, many companies turn to Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software – with limited success. First, because CRM and process are not in sync. Second, because employees don’t truly live CRM in their day-to-day.
Are you looking to improve your sales results? Our optimized sales processes and our Sales Playbook will help you do just that.
Step 1: Defining and documenting your sales process
Together with you, we’ll structure and clarify your established processes. In addition to helpful tools and methods, you’ll receive definitions and documentations tailored exactly to your needs. And of course, we will integrate everything into your existing CRM system.
Process consistency and comprehensiveness are key; as are easily adjustable and agile methods. This creates space for flexibility and creativity in everyday sales.
All of this forms a valuable basis for executives managing their sales force. It allows you to effectively plan out your success!
Step 2: Defining your Sales Playbook
The Sales Playbook is a compilation of all tasks, instructions, guidelines and performance indicators. It details the entire process and helps your sales force achieve maximum efficiency and success in every project.
In other words, the Sales Playbook is a comprehensive guide to support your sales reps in their day-to-day sales efforts. It clearly defines when to do what and serves as a practical toolbox and guide, every step of the way.
Additionally, the Sales Playbook contains a set of criteria to assess and qualify open projects. These criteria separate the wheat from the chaff and point your sales reps towards the projects that really matter.
Bottom-line: The Sales Playbook enables your sales force to finish even complex projects safely, effectively, efficiently and SUCCESSFULLY.
It’s also a fantastic resource for management.
As the Sales Playbook includes all skills and competencies required, it’s a well-defined template for staff development and training. Moreover, the detailed processes and procedures serve as a practical roadmap to supervise and manage your sales force.
Step 3: Targeted training
In order to successfully implement the optimized processes, we will draw up a detailed training plan with you. The most important component is your individual Sales Playbook; our coaching specifically targets the defined competencies and tools therein.
This also ensures maximum relevance to your sales staff. By offering an optimal cost-benefit-ratio, our targeted training guarantees a higher degree of knowledge retention and success.
