Only 54% of sales reps are effective at accessing key players in the buyer's organization. Gaining access to key players can make or break your ability to win deals and build long lasting relationships.

  • Dealmaker Political Map Express helps you to get a visual representation of the people in the buyer’s organization. Your sales team can benefit from graphical maps, smart coaching and social networks for each contact. You will see how to Identify the right people, gain access, and develop support to give you a competitive advantage to win.Political Map express is powered by the Salesforce Platform. Dealmaker is native on the force.com platform Unlike other solutions that are integrated, this means that your data resides in the Salesforce Cloud, with the same security as Saleforce, the same performance as Salesforce, and all of the data captured within Dealmaker is inherently accessible to Salesforce reports, dashboards, and other applications. You do not have to worry about the security of a third party Cloud, the data transfer issues that occur with non-native solutions, or the reliability of a third party hosting infrastructure.  Because we leverage the power of the Salesforce infrastructure by being fully native, we can focus our resources on delivering great sales effectiveness application capability to you.  Political Map express is just one example.
  • If Sales Automation is about making sales people more efficient, sales methodology is about making sales people more effective.But Sales Methodology is not delivered in context of their deals, their accounts and their team selling activity. We’ve seen hours, days and some times week of training. It is difficult to remember.Bringing sales people together for long and drawn out sales training workshops is not what sales people want or need. And buyers are getting more sophisticated, therefore sellers need to become more sophisticated too. Another limitation of Methodology is that it is not measurable. (We add Analytics to make it measureable)
  • Over the years, our sales people have seen so much in terms of tools, methodologies and sales automation.XLS was (and for some) still is their primary sales automation tool. For many sales managers, XLS is still their default forecasting tool.Then we experienced applications like ACT, Goldmine and other desktop based contact managers.Salesforce.com lead the way to provide organizations with a tool to bring together disparate sales teams with their social, mobile and cloud service.What’s next for sales teams? Sales people expect their sales automation tools to be everything I’ve described but also smart with real time coaching. The evolution of sales has shifted from who you know to find the pain to intelligent insight.We believe intelligent deal coaching is the next wave of sales automation.
  • Having the power of visualization enables the sales team to see exactly who they should be spending time with; Who is for them and who is against them. What’s interesting is you have this information in SFDC, it’s all in the contact records but it is very hard to see. Graphically represented, you have an entirely different feeling. When there are sales support people working with you on the opportunity, the clarity becomes exponential. You want to be sure that the team is all on the same page for any upcoming meeting. Using Dealmaker Political Map Express I can quickly see the lay of the land. .
  • Based on the analysis of 1000s of sales reps, we know that just over half of sales professionals know how to access key players. In this latest version of the Dealmaker Index survey 2-13 (n=750) we learned that 54% can gain access to Key Players, and they achieve 30% more Revenue than those those that do not access Key Players.
  • Customers care about the integrity and strength of the underlying methodology. We deliver structured, repeatable opportunity assessment.Sales Campaign StrategiesCompetitivePolitics & InfluenceRelationshipsInsight MapEarly qualification & compelling event
  • Who are the Key Players? Key Players control outcomes and make things happen Make things happen How to do it: People are more likely to take a meeting when they are referred by someone elseProbability of taking a call add always and usually Cold call inside referral4x more likely to take a call from inside referral than a direct cold call Back up data is 22% of executives will take a cold call, 84% will take the call if they have been referred from the inside What to do when you get there: how to be successful when you get there: When do you need to access key players – early and late use the U shaped curve from training Executive CrediblyWhy Maintain accessBuild preference what to say to establish exec credibilty
