Do your sales representatives typically start the fiscal year without a current compensation package? Does your sales organization struggle to quickly adapt its territories to changing market conditions? Are your sales managers relying on spreadsheets and manual data gathering for forecasting?
For many sales organizations, the current state of territory and quota planning is not flexible enough to respond to rapidly changing sales environments and is unable to provide crucial sales information when it can be most beneficial. Leading companies that proactively tackle these challenges in order to improve sales team consistency and deliver efficient market coverage ultimately see fewer missed opportunities and increased revenues.
