No one ever said the sales profession was easy. That’s why it’s so difficult for sales managers to recruit and retain highly productive, professional salespeople. Improving sales performance and stemming the tide of defectors is a hot topic, although managers have few answers or plans to address.
The 80 – 20 rule is often cited. According to Inc. Magazine, most sales teams have a few high achievers, and a larger group are lackluster performers. Only a fifth of salespeople usually exceed quota on the average team, which means that 80 % often miss their quota. Why?
· Only 20% of companies have an accuracy of 80% or better with sales forecasting
· Nearly 59% of sales forecasts are wrong
· 90% of spreadsheets contain errors that can compromise forecasts
· Only 4 out of 10 deals forecasted will actually close
Compare Those Stats to Sales Teams That Use AI
· 10.5x more likely to experience a positive impact on forecast accuracy
· 70% believe in AI to transform Intelligent Forecasting
· 66% trust AI to substantially impact Opportunity Insights
· 65% have high confidence in AI to uncover Account Insights
