These days, the standard sales pitch isn’t enough to close the deal; prospects and leads now expect relevant, personalized sales experiences. But to deliver them, sellers need a complete view of the customer—from their behaviors to their predicted needs.

Give sellers the tools to be more productive so they can focus on making every customer interaction matter.

Score your organization's sales strategy with a quick self-assessment

With the right tools—from sales automation to configure, price, quote (CPQ) solutions—sellers can spend less time entering data and more time focused on selling.

Take this brief self-assessment to score your organization’s sales strategy. Simply select your functional area and answer a few quick questions to visualize and benchmark your company’s approach to responsive selling.

Sales Success self-assessment

The first step in making every customer interaction matter is understanding your organization’s current strengths and gaps. This tool can help you quickly identify them for the following categories:

Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation: Can your organization monitor sales engagement levels and touchpoints across all accounts? Can your sellers track activities related to leads or opportunities?

Guided selling: Do you guide sellers through the sales process with intuitive tools and intelligent recommendations?

Seller productivity: Do your sellers have access to intuitive tools that make it easier for them to find the data they need to drive business results?

Mobile application: Can your sellers access and update CRM data at any time from anywhere?

Data and integration: Does your sales organization have a unified view of the customer, connected by online and offline data sources across sales, marketing, service, finance, HR, and supply chain?

Marketing alignment: Is there a tight integration between sales and marketing that provides the context sellers need to act quickly on qualified leads?


Here’s an example of the type of feedback a sales executive could expect to receive from the tool:
