SALES PLANNING | COMMAND OF THE PLAN®

Build healthy sales pipelines and forecast accurately

Healthy sales pipelines and accurate forecasts are grounded in structured territory, account and opportunity planning processes. These processes provide sales managers with an unrestricted line of sight into their sales organizations.  Without this line of sight, sales organizations often:

  • Miss quota goals
  • Forecast revenue inaccurately
  • Close the majority of deals late in the quarter – or year

A predictable sales planning process avoids these pitfalls by improving coverage of its territories and accounts.  The result is a better balance between new account sales and existing account up-sells and cross-sells.

You can get there, too.
