I.B.I.S. Improves Results For Sales.
Delivering predictable revenue growth in the midst of an economic downturn is a daunting challenge and as a result there has never been a more critical time for ensuring Sales Professionals are focusing the right resources on the right opportunities.
Economic uncertainty and decreasing access to capital and operating lines of credit have resulted in CFOs the world over scrutinizing capital requests with scrooge-like compassion. Globally, capital and operating plans have been re-written, budgets have been cut, headcounts reduced, and internal cost centers carved to the bone.
Strategic investment has given way to capital preservation, discretionary spending has been removed from the corporate lexicon and only business cases that deliver immediate, short-term, strategic payback are being considered by the executive leadership team. Not the most encouraging, or motivated, buying climate.
Your own internal management team will be looking to you to counterbalance their liquidity challenges with increased revenue, accelerated receivables collection, and expense reductions; more with less.
Expect to see overall opportunity volume decrease, and the number of opportunities which run the full sales cycle to die a quick and painful death at the hand of the CFO due to weak business cases or uninteresting payback periods to increase.
To ensure forecast accuracy, and revenue predictability, sales management must equip themselves with the appropriate information and sales support tools/infrastructure to position themselves for success within the dwindling pool of legitimate opportunities.
Now is not the time to leave sales activities and strategy to chance. With the risk profile of every new opportunity increasing, to properly manage internal resources and account activities you need greater visibility into:
Customer/prospect account plans
Customer/prospect account strategy
Prospect buying criteria
Prospect business case development
Internal resource utilization
