Sales Team Optimisation

Sales Team Optimisation helps you improve the utilisation of your sales team to deliver better customer satisfaction and cost-effectively.

Sales Team Optimisation helps you achieve your goals

Running a sales team is a balancing act. You want to take advantage of market potential which means maximising coverage. But you also need to drive efficiencies, which means cutting wastage. Sales Team Optimisation helps you achieve both goals with data-driven decision-making to mitigate human bias. While the sales territory mapping software adds increased rigour and accountability to territory planning and team activity. That means improved team utilisation, higher customer satisfaction and more sales achieved cost-effectively.

OUR 4 STEP APPROACH

STEP 1 - Sales Landscape Analysis

What is it?

The identification of critical changes if your sales or service team isn’t performing as you need it to.

Why is it important?

Benchmarking your current territory structure will give you the story of your team’s activity and outcomes. It will deliver the data for informed decision-making on the steps needed to optimise your sales team and territories to meet company targets. 

What are the results?

Results are presented in a mix of mapping visualisations and charts & graphs & can be explored in-depth through filtering and zooming in Territory Runner.

Data Consolidation and Audit

The combining of all your relevant company data from many different systems into one data universe including customers, prospects, sales, territories.

STEP 2 - Opportunity Targeting

What is it?

Opportunity Targeting uses advanced data analytics to identify the accounts and prospects worth pursuing and those not worth your time.

Why is it important?

Get this right and sales will flourish, with more of the right kind of customers being visited each day. Get it wrong and your team will find their time eaten up by unsuitable prospects, distracting them from high-value opportunities making it harder to hit the target.

Common Barriers to Opportunity Targeting

What are the results?

Customers who currently receive visits, but whose value doesn’t warrant the attention of your sales team, will be replaced with visits to accounts and prospects much more likely to buy. Customers who can easily be serviced by a less expensive method – such as telesales or email – are identified.

The right segmentation scheme also drives the workload calculations needed for your team to achieve targets. These underpin field force structures that will drive higher sales – the right people will be visited at the right time with the right offer.

STEP 3 - Field Team Sizing & Scenario Modelling

What is it?

Determine the ideal size for your sales team considering current market challenges, team capacity, segmentation, sales channels and the resultant workload.

Why is it important?

Correct field team sizing ensures all customers and prospects receive appropriate coverage; the right mix of products are sold and the field force is stretched but not overworked. Underestimate your team size and you could be employing too few people and not servicing customers effectively. Overestimate it and your headcount could be too high – and people are expensive.

What are the results?

STEP 4 - Sales Territory Alignment & Mapping

What is it?

The development of an ideal sales territory structure reflecting your company’s strategy, delivering on sales quotas, and effective for your team in the field.

Why is it important?

It sets the sales team up to meet company objectives with achievable targets and fair and equal sales potential and drive times.

How do we do it?

Based on the results from Steps 1-3, we design the agreed number of sales territories taking account of team bases, customer and prospect segments and locations, the road network, and rep-to-customer drivetimes.

Field Force Optimisation

All organisations have unique needs in this area. As such, we tailor each project and Territory Runner system to suit different data, varying circumstances and budgets.
