As per Peter Drucker, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”

Businesses are eager to capitalize on new opportunities, close deals quicker and generate more value for their customers. They want to identify areas for improving performance by tracking, integrating, optimizing, and modeling sales data from distinct sources. Sales Analytics makes use of the available data to provide valuable insights and help in management of the sales pipeline, forecasting and deals’ health. The quantitative and qualitative analysis of performance metrics through sales analytics dashboards is crucial to make sure that all sales processes are optimized to improve sales performance. By allowing the executives to take informed decisions, sales dashboards increase the effectiveness of sales process by using real-time sales metrics through interactive drill-downs and easy to understand graphs.

Let’s have a look at a scenario to understand this better

Scenario: A B2B sales organization was struggling to efficiently manage their sales pipeline and forecasts, have latest opportunities updated in the sales pipeline, know when a deal is closed, know the current status of the deal, which sales campaign was effective and which wasn’t.

Solution: Data scientists at Grazitti came up with 3 analytics dashboards to analyze trends, slice, dice and report complex data relationships using interactive charts, graphs, and maps on a single screen to replace their standard CRM reports. With these interactive dashboards, VPs and Directors could get the information to drive their decisions through centralized, real-time reports integrated within their CRM.
