Customer Targeting and Activity Planning

Increase Sales Success and ROI on Your Sales Force Investment

The sales field force remains one of the most effective channels to engage customers. However, it is also one of the most expensive.

In a market in which you have to achieve more with less, companies must maximize the return on their sales force:

  • How can your sales organization identify the best customer opportunities?
  • How can the sales force plan field activities to leverage those opportunities?
  • What steps can your sales force take to ensure that the planned tactics address evolving customer and business needs with high flexibility and short turnaround times?
