AGC Sales Technology Report JUL2016

  1. 1. Sales Technology A l w a y s B e C l o s i n g
  2. 2. Introduction to Sales Technology The sales process for B2B companies is changing as customer buying habits change. Readily available online information enables customers to research and learn the details of specific products and services without interacting with a salesperson. The connected and empowered buyer is driven not only by the proliferation of information but also by a behavioral change in which they prefer to find information and identify alternatives on their own. According to Forrester Research ”today’s buyers might be anywhere from two- thirds to 90% through their journey before they reach out to the vendor”. To be successful in today’s customer-empowered environment, sales teams need to arm themselves with the best tools to convert clients once they do become interested in the product. In response, Sales Technology has evolved beyond just traditional CRM. Top performing sales teams are leveraging cutting edge technology to focus their sales efforts on the best prospects, arm themselves with the most up to date and relevant sales material, and reduce manual or repetitive tasks. Sales Technology enables sales teams to accelerate the sales cycle by doing things smarter, better and faster, and, ultimately, close more and higher quality deals. It also takes some of the uncertainty out of the sales function by enabling clear, repeatable processes, optimized by actionable data insights. A company’s success literally depends on the performance of their sales people and it is no surprise that executives are keen to have their sales teams humming at peak performance. This is driving significant growth in the $16.6B Sales Technology market and fueling hundreds of start-ups and strong strategic interest from buyers. 2 Sales Technology Empowers Sales Teams to be More Efficient and Effective Massive $16.6 Billion U.S. Market (excluding CRM)
  3. 3. Where Sales Technology Fits in the Conversion Funnel “The first rule of any technology…is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” – Bill Gates Sales Technology promises to do for the sales function what Marketing Technology has done for the marketing function – drive greater efficiency, effectiveness, and intelligence. Whether finding the best prospects, optimizing communications, or streamlining sales collateral, Sales Technology is becoming an invaluable tool for maximizing sales team performance. 3 Awareness Interest Consideration Intent Evaluation Decision Purchase Leads Prospects Customers MARKETING TECHNOLOGY SALES TECHNOLOGY Classification Near-Term Prospects Marketing / Sales Functions Advertising, Search, Social, Outbound Prospecting, Content Marketing, Event Marketing Website Tracking, Optimization, Email Marketing, Lead Scoring, CRM Quotes, Documentation Inside Sales, Outside Sales, Presentations Purchase Funnel
  4. 4. Sales Technology is a Massive Opportunity 4 Source: U.S. Census, Gartner, InsideSales $14.6 $16.6 CRM Sales Acceleration Total U.S. Market Size ($B) in 2015 “When you improve your product so it does the customer’s job better, then you gain market share.” – Clayton Christensen We think of Sales Technology as comprised of both traditional CRM and Sales Acceleration (essentially, everything else) technologies. While the distinction is somewhat fuzzy as CRM suites incorporate additional functionality, Sales Acceleration as a standalone opportunity is already larger than the traditional CRM market and has the potential to grow even faster. Key Assumptions:  5.8M sales reps in the U.S. (non-retail) in 2015 ̶ 1.8% increase from U.S. census 2014 estimate of 5.7M  $2,850 sales acceleration spend per sales rep in 2015 ̶ 25% increase from InsideSales’ 2013 estimate  U.S. accounts for 55.7% of the global CRM market
  5. 5. 5 Defining the Sales Technology Market Sales Force Management Sales Data / Analytics Customer Intelligence Sales Enablement Sales Engagement  Key Capabilities: CRM, email tools, call tools, automated engagement, sales activity logging  Tools to help sales professionals reach out to more prospects more efficiently.  Improves how sales professionals communicate with customers and ensures that messaging is on point.  Allows sales professionals to keep track of historical interaction so that communications are coherent and consistent.  Key Capabilities: content enablement, content sharing, automated quotes / documentation  Increases the effectiveness of sales professionals by arming them with the latest sales collateral and allowing them to easily customize for each client.  Intelligent content recommendations tactically sequenced to increase the chance of connecting with a customer at each stage of the buying cycle.  Key Capabilities: database / list services, company intelligence, buyer insights, social prospecting  Leverages internal and external data sets to gain insight into potential prospects to streamline the qualification, communication, and conversion process.  Provides access to pre-qualified leads or helps identify leads using social networking and other channels.  Key Capabilities: pipeline management, data visualization, predictive analytics, interaction analytics  Analyzes leads and historical sales activity in order to provide actionable insights that allow sales professionals to focus sales efforts on highest value targets.  Identifies, models, and predicts sales trends and outcomes while aiding sales management in understanding where salespeople can improve.  Key Capabilities: onboarding, coaching, compensation, sales gamification, performance management  Helps sales managers formulate and implement sales strategies and effectively manage sales people.  Provides tools and reward systems to train and encourage sales professionals and drive friendly competition that creates an incentive based atmosphere.  Clearly outlines sales objectives and ensures that compensation is aligned with company goals.

  7. 7. “Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.” – Anthony Robbins The sales process is unpredictable and inefficient. Sales Technologies take some of the burden off of sales people by standardizing and automating processes and addressing critical pain points. Addressing Key Industry Pain Points 7 Sales Problem Sales Technology Value Proposition Poor insight into the quality of leads and where they should be spending time.  Align marketing and sales goals to improve collaboration.  Leverage machine learning to optimize lead generation for highest ROI customers.  Predictive analytics to help prioritize leads. Non-linear buying process of potential customers caused by channel fragmentation.  360-degree view of the customer, including online activity, response to marketing campaigns, past communication history, etc.  Multi-channel orchestration to ensure coherent messaging across calls, emails and other communications. Time consuming tasks such as managing accounts and tracking and reporting sales activity.  Quote generation tools with visibility into the latest product and pricing information.  Automated logging of sales activity and generation of actionable reports on performance.  Outreach notifications and reminders. Poor access to updated and relevant sales collateral.  Cloud-based repository of latest sales collateral accessible from any device.  Automatic syncing of sales collateral with latest marketing campaigns.  Sales collateral organized and optimized based on client type and funnel stage. Difficult managing sales team performance and turn-over.  Get greater visibility into pipeline and forecasts making sales more predictable.  Clear, repeatable sales processes, optimized through scientific analysis, to help salespeople take some of the guesswork out of their jobs.

Considering the cost of top sales talent and the challenging nature of the role, companies are keenly focused on optimizing their sales organizations.
  9. 9. The Empowered Buyer “How is it we have so much information, but know so little?” – Noam Chomsky Customers have access to more product information than ever before. Through company websites, white papers, web videos, infographics, social content, online review sites, etc, customers may be very well informed before they ever talk to a sales person. The challenge then is for sales reps to be able to react quickly to help customers complete the purchase journey. 9 Awareness Interest Consideration Intent Evaluation Decision Purchase Traditional Buyer Education Self Directed by Customer Discovery Channels: - Website - Trade Shows - Marketing Content Awareness Interest Consideration Intent Evaluation Decision Purchase Today’s Empowered Buyer Engages Sales Person Engages Sales Person Self Directed by Customer Discovery Channels: - Website - White Papers - Web Videos - Infographics - Social - Online Review Sites - Trade Shows - Marketing Content
  10. 10. 10 Aligning Sales and Marketing “What about the good leads?” – Shelley Levene, Glengarry Glen Ross (1992) The line between marketing and sales continues to blur. B2B marketing organizations are becoming revenue-generating centers, while salespeople are behaving like micro-marketers when they share content through social media channels. These two roles serve a shared purpose: to identify, attract, and close business for the company. Aligning sales and marketing functions ultimately leads to less finger pointing and better performance for both teams. Marketing Sales  Keeps marketing content consistent with sales collateral to deliver coherent messages to customers that are going through more of the product journey themselves.  More cooperation between marketing teams and sales teams results in faster conversion from lead to sale.  Analytics and transparency help avoid finger pointing situations where sales blames marketing for poor leads and marketing blaming sales for not being able to close. ADVANTAGES OF SALES AND MARKETING ALIGNMENT  Aligns marketing and sales on shared goals and KPIs, such as lead to close rate, lead to opportunity rate, deal velocity, average deal value growth, database reach, engagement and other metrics.  Marketing gains better insight into which leads result in the best ROI, allowing them to optimize their marketing activities.  Sales can gain valuable intel on customer needs and challenges through access to marketing analytics, allowing them to tailor their sales messages.
