We all know you need to equip your team with the knowledge and skills they need to close business, but a successful sales enablement strategy also means equipping your team with the tools to sell more effectively. By minimizing the time your sales team spends looking up information and having this information “at your fingertips”, your sales team can avoid navigating through various sales tools, and trying to find answers to the day to day questions that come in from customers and prospects. The access to “at your fingertips” information, can enable your sales team to do what they do best: SELL!
According to Brandon Hall Group’s research, 88 percent of buyers and executives expressed the importance of sales professionals needing to have competencies for business knowledge and customer insight. However, in a recent survey only 35 percent of sales professionals had the ability to identify business metrics most important to their buyers and only 27 percent were able to show a deep understanding of their buyers’ business initiatives. Not surprisingly, only 50% of these same sales professionals reported these competencies being addressed in their learning.
