Many of today s top sales teams once struggled with them as well. In countless cases, however, powerful Sales Force Automation tools have helped turn underperforming teams into highly successful ones. What s the secret?

Just what is Sales Force Automation? Commonly abbreviated SFA, it s a powerful software strategy that streamlines sales-force management tasks into a highly cohesive whole.

At the same time, executives and managers using SFA can quickly: Track sales activities (such as calls and appointments) to ensure that reps are spending their time in the most effective way. Make better business decisions on pricing and competition based on real-time data. Create accurate revenue forecasts, by month, quarter and year. Ensure fair lead distribution among sales reps.

3 Find out how Entellium can put your team on the fast track to sales success. Call or Which lead sources result in the highest percentage of closed business deals? Stop Wasting Money by eliminating the lead sources that don t produce revenue. Sales Force Automation solutions like Entellium esalesforce can identify where good, bad and mediocre leads come from so you can strengthen your investment with productive sources and stop spending on sources that don t bring in business. How well does your Web site convert visitors to actual leads? Businesses and Consumers Shop Online so you are losing revenue by not maximizing the lead generation potential of your Web site. Sales Force Automation generally includes Web forms that Web site visitors can fill out, which can be automatically routed to the most appropriate sales representative (by product, location, etc.). The sales rep can then immediately see the contact information for that prospect and what they re interested in and follow up quickly while the prospect is showing interest. Are you eliminating perfectly good lead sources because your sales team doesn t have the right tools to convert them to sales opportunities? Different Lead Sources May Require Different Responses from the sales team, but without Sales Force Automation they are generally treated as one size fits all. We have seen customers significantly improve results using Sales Force Automation by testing different call scripts or responses by lead source. Imagine if they just decided those lead sources were bad and discontinued them. Is your sales team selling the most profitable products, or just the ones that are easiest to sell? Some Products May Have Higher Margins than others, but some sales reps may prefer to sell cheaper products because, frankly, they find it easier. The right Sales Force Automation solution can help by giving managers visibility into product quotations so they never have to wait to correct sales rep behavior. In addition, Entellium esalesforce includes a sales knowledge base that you can load with tips for up-selling and cross-selling. Entellium CRM has opened a whole new world of opportunities. Now our sales operation is running a lot faster and more efficiently. - Nat James, Senior VP of Inside Sales Group Community South Bank 2

4 Learn how Entellium can help your business answer these 25 questions in less than 60 days. Call or 5 What sales process is your best sales rep using to close business deals? Always Know Exactly What Your Best Performers Are Doing by seeing how fast they respond to new leads, what time of day they are most successful with calls, what sales collateral they use and at what point of the sale they send this information. Entellium esalesforce lets you learn what works and doesn t work so you can consistently make improvements across your team. How often is this successful sales process followed by other sales reps in your company? Standardize Your Most Successful Sales Practices across your entire sales team. Look for a Sales Force Automation solution that offers built-in sales checklists that guide reps through the sales process modeled after the process used by your most successful salespeople. This capability increases the chances that reps will bring in the business more routinely. How can you help your sales team achieve quota more consistently? Quota is More Likely to Be Met and Exceeded when your team tracks activities, not just sales. Sales success is ruled by ratios a certain number of calls leads to a certain number of appointments, which creates a smaller number of follow-ups, then proposals, on to a closed sale. The best reps know their numbers. You can then focus on improving their conversions at each stage of the sale. This is possible with Sales Force Automation because each activity can be recorded and viewed against more successful team members for improvement. Do your sales reps have the ability to respond to prospects quickly when they are away from their computers? Sales Reps Can t Afford to Be Disconnected from prospects in a competitive environment. Entellium esalesforce s mobile solution gives your team instant access to all sales information on their mobile phones. They can work deals even when away from their computer. Where are your reps stalling in the sales process? Is there a common theme you need to address? Gain Crucial Insight into how deals progress through your sales pipeline, from discovery through proposal, negotiation and close. As a result, sales managers can understand where individual reps are getting stuck and use this insight to help them get deals moving again. Sometimes a strong theme emerges that can be addressed across the team, like a competitive threat that may not be easily spotted otherwise. 3

5 Entellium was light years ahead of the others, especially with its workflow engine and its ability to connect to our lead generation systems and auto-populate the CRM application with our leads. We ve only really scratched the surface of what Entellium can do. - Ed Kundahl, President and CEO Haven Internet How long is your average sales cycle? How are individual reps doing compared to this average? Sales and Finance Both Want The Deals in Now to eliminate monthly revenue shortfalls.

How much time does your team spend creating follow-up tasks, composing s and scheduling phone calls related to closing sales? Make Your Team More Effective by automating the tedious aspects of selling. So much time is spent setting up repetitive s, tasks and appointments. Imagine instead a world in which each time a new lead is created a welcome goes out, a task is created for a sales rep to call the prospect, and a follow-up with a brochure is sent a few days later all automatically. Entellium esalesforce lets you create an entire set of activities that can be triggered to run automatically, saving your reps hours of time and boredom each week. Is every lead delivered to the sales team being followed up on in a timely manner? If not, what can you do? Successful Sales Executives Know that time kills deals. Sales Force Automation immediately routes leads from any source to the sales representative best suited to close the deal. It can also be set up to ensure that no single rep has too many or too few leads to work on.

Balance Workload Among Your Sales Reps automatically, saving hours of management time. Entellium esalesforce has a powerful lead distribution engine that lets you easily set up thresholds to optimize how leads are managed. This allows you to cap the number of leads a given rep can handle (for example, a higher number for a proven performer, a lower number for a recent hire), ensuring that incoming leads stay warm. Are you getting the correct information you need to run the business in a timely manner? Spend Your Time Improving Your Business, not Gathering Data.

7 We ve received three key benefits from Entellium: First, we now have immediate visibility into the status of every client; second, Entellium ensures efficiency in our work, since no new tasks are assigned until previous ones have been completed; and third, the streamlining we ve gained from Entellium will allow us to grow our business by 25 percent without increasing head count or other costs Which competitors do you lose the most business to and why? You Will Win a Higher Percentage of Deals if you understand which companies you re losing deals to and why. Using this information, you can determine whether the problem might be related to training, pricing, product or something else. With Sales Force Automation, this insight is just a few clicks away. How can you shorten the ramp-up of new sales representatives? Time Spent Training is Time Spent Not Selling. Sales Force Automation lets you minimize training times required for new reps by standardizing prospecting and selling best practices. Entellium esalesforce takes the guesswork away by giving you the ability to ensure new sales team members have a consistent sales process to follow, standard templates and scripts to use, and task lists to advance them from one stage to another. In addition, Entellium esalesforce offers free video training to get your sales team trained on the tools quickly. How do you know when to hire more sales people? Adding New Sales Employees is Expensive, so make sure you really need more people. The right Sales Force Automation tool can track overall team pipeline volume as well as individual workloads to help you determine when to add more resources. Many companies are forced to add salespeople to mask inefficiency. They are unable to determine whether a salesperson is inefficient or truly overloaded. When sales reps leave the company, how easy is it to reassign their prospects to other reps for followup? Do you have a way of knowing what accounts they were working on, or do those accounts leave with them? Make Sure Your Business Doesn t Walk Out the Door with a departing sales rep by maintaining a central database for all leads and sales opportunities. With Entellium esalesforce, it takes fewer than 10 minutes to reassign an entire territory to another sales representative. Reassignment is also useful when you are building your team and need to move leads to new representatives. - Karen Northup, CEO Corefino Learn how Entellium can help your business answer these 25 questions in less than 60 days.

It provides an easy way for them to view their goals and track their performance.

How do you get your sales team to enter data into a Sales Force Automation solution consistently? Make Sure The Solution You Choose is Easy to Use and can keep up with your sales reps.

In contrast, Entellium esalesforce was designed around sales people first with single-page editing, drop-down menus that can take them to any place in the application in just one click, and a work notes feature that lets them see everything they ve recorded about a sales opportunity a great way to prepare for each call with a prospect.
