Sales Force Automation

Sales Force Automation and your business

Sales managers should consider sales force automation to meet one or more of the following business objectives:

  • Increased Sales – Cut out time consuming paperwork by automating the order taking process. This gives your sales people more time to make additional sales calls each day.
  • Increased Order Value – Empower your sales people to up-sell. Increase the value of each order with real time specials, new product releases, end of line offers and promotions.
  • Increased Order to Visit Ratio – Ensure your sales people have all the information they need in real time to answer any questions and close an order on every visit.
  • Reduced Staff Numbers – Automating order processing reduces the need for customer service staff to manually enter orders.
  • Greater Visibility – Receive call reports immediately after the visit is complete, allowing you to track the progress of your team and respond to customer issues as they arise.
