Sales organizations face certain challenges in managing sales performance, not the least of which is analyzing critical Sales Transaction Intelligence (STI). Many on-demand, Sales Performance Management (SPM) solutions focus on subjective, hard to quantify, sales performance measurements; and often rely on the sales team to measure their own progress. When the sales team is responsible for reporting their own sales, costly misreporting and calculation errors will occur. When this happens, everyone is working with inaccurate information; and implementing new sales strategies and calculating meaningful incentives becomes impossible.
In order to run efficiently, sales organizations need to accurately measure a sales force’s performance, based on accurate sales intelligence. Unfortunately, this remains one of the greatly untapped elements of sales performance management. Most, if not all, on-demand SPM solutions cannot accommodate the limitless variables and voluminous data needed for comprehensive STI analysis. Without a solid SCM tool, which accurately evaluates a company’s transaction intelligence, then convert that into Business Profitability Intelligence, an SPM solution can create more problems than it solves.
