Are the sales statistics from your team correct?

The internet is a powerful medium that has an equally sacred and affable reputation as a source of research. More often than not, news reports have to be corrected because information has been based on solid foundation. Almost innocent information is also often accepted unthinkingly. How many famous quotes from others have already been put to the name of Abraham Lincoln or Albert Einstein? This is also the case when we look at data available on the internet about sales effectiveness and the figures that we receive from Salesinteract by measuring.

Salesinteract is an interactive CRM that makes it possible to involve your customers or prospects in the purchase or delivery process. This gives us the ideal basis for carrying out a variety of measurements and testing data that roam the internet. Thanks to a unique and simple dashboard, fully based on the modern sales professional, Salesinteract makes it possible to work more efficiently and to be informed of your customer’s actions in good time, so that you can come to your aid in time. The system is designed in such a way that everything can be done on minimal effort.

What is being said about sales professionals?

At this moment, the generally accepted figures taken by the bank are as follows. 48% of the account managers never follow a prospect. That means that just under half (!) Of all sales professionals leave it after one contact moment. 25% of sales professionals then stop after the second contact moment. If that does not matter, 12% of the account managers or sales professionals will leave it after a third contact moment. Only 10% of all sales professionals across the board of product suppliers and business service providers have more than 3 contact moments. This would mean that 85% of all sales professionals work ineffective. A shockingly high number, is not it? Of course you would like your people to excel in the professional field and never to be among those 85%.

At Salesinteract, we started working on these figures and we started measuring all our users – with permission – how they relate to the above data. This resulted in very different figures. Over the past three months, we have looked at several organizations of the total sales operation that uses our system and, based on the activities we saw, managed to create a clear overview.

What do we measure with Salesinteract?

15% of all sales professionals who subscribe to our users never follow a prospect. After a second contact moment, 7% gives it a shot. Incidentally, this can also be fine because a lead or prospect is then qualified and is actually identified as ‘no interesting prospect’ according to the values ​​of the organization. But let’s assume that it always does

is interesting prospects, then that 7% is significantly lower than 25% that it

the Internet predicts us. In our measurements then 3% of the

sales professionals after a third contact moment. In the end more than 70% follow

just up until a real ‘yes’ or ‘no’ comes from a prospect. Our measurement is

founded and exhibits minimal deviations, but we are also there at Salesinteract

aware that the parties we are working with, the system is not yet perfect

use. There are numerous functions available in the convenient dashboard

be present to help sales professionals work more efficiently and to assist the customer

involve the process.

When the users would go completely according to the philosophy of Salesinteract

work and, for example, would not allow activities to go ‘by date’,

then the measurements would undoubtedly be even more favorable in results. We work there

to make that happen, because in the long run all sales managers

find a way to focus on the customer instead of all sorts of things

administrative and distracting tasks, both parties in the process are better off.

Of course we can not sit on the user’s chair, all the necessary handles

Providing is something we can do something about.

The system

Salesinteract offers, in addition to efficiency and ease of use, a way to help your customers

take the hand and really involve them in your process. Think of a by the

customer use chat function and an easy way to share files. A

Another plus is that the system gives a complete insight into what is on the

sales department is done. Managers can easily create a real-time overview

track on all points. Are agreements followed? How many contact moments

does my team have an average? How many suspects, prospects and active customers have

we now and what status do they have?

Also a direct overview where what information is sent to, is too

to gain. This means that other professionals can immediately start working if a colleague fails

the same point further. Everything is available from one location, always and everywhere

is insightful, designed in a clear and well-organized dashboard.
