Barriers to KAM Tech
Key Accounts bring in a lion’s share of a company's revenues, but the
enabling tools and solutions specifically developed for managing and
growing Key Accounts have remained underwhelming.
Institutionalizing KAM across the organization is a huge challenge and it
cannot be done without the right technology enabler.

Challenges around data entry, standardization, currency and accuracy
“Key Account Management seems caught in the chasm between ‘art’ and ‘science’ so that neither
end is being fulfilled optimally.”
Sales Ops have somehow been working with sub-optimal models to deliver the
insights and analysis needed to match the complexities of Key Accounts.
Can a better, more relevant technology transform the
way we manage and grow Key Accounts?
Here is a KAM Tech wish list: technology that can:
Help in operationalising and driving follow through of any chosen KAM methodology
Institutionalise the core KAM processes like analysis-planning-tracking-measuring,
reviewing and governing of Key Accounts
Leverage existing CRM data to populate the analytics
Collate all the data into a single format and store it in a single platform
Enable one-click, real time report generation, exporting and sharing
And most important:
Technology that delivers the right customer-centric insights for clarity and action - the landscape, whitespace,
relationship ‘type’, ‘health’, and ‘attractiveness’, financials - everything a KAM Team needs to make strategic
decisions about the Key Relationship.
Going forward, data complexities will only get more overwhelming.
Enabling KAM technology is a step in this direction.
Organizations that have identified "Digital" as a business driver
-in sectors such as Outsourcing, Manufacturing, Travel and
Consulting - have taken the lead in leveraging KAM Tech, thanks
to an empowered Sales Ops.
