Sales Enablement tools, with or without a CRM, are often thought of as a one-stop solution for sales teams struggling to improve their numbers, but in some cases it’s not that simple. What they don’t mention as often are the Sales Enablement Platform that is running around in the background making sure all of those tools are being used to their full potential. Most people can do some great stuff on their own if you hand them the proper tools, but a professional will always have better insight on how to get the best possible results using the same equipment. That’s why teams need coaches and why TigerLRM offers a sales enablement full-service option that is designed to make an already robust, and free, platform even more powerful.
Sales reps are on a mission to close deal, and many of them are frustrated with management teams that have outdated Sales Playbooks and have been slow to adopt game-changing new tools to help them sell more effectively. That’s how sales enablement was born. In a general sense, sales enablement is the iterative process of providing your business’s sales team with the resources they need to close more deals. To be more specific, resources can consist of training and coaching, sales materials, a sales playbook, content to counter sales objections, lead management, data enrichment, tool usage monitoring, and sales process optimization, just to name a few. The main reasons sales organizations implement a sales enablement strategy is because they want to close deals at a higher rate and with more consistency without hiring more sales reps. The tell-tale signs that an organization is ripe for a sales enablement intervention are high employee turnover, low tool usage or adoption, and an increasing number of leads that don’t close. Additionally, when choosing a CRM, an organization should understand its sales enablement needs.
Sales enablement services are meant to maximize the impact of sales enablement tools, and usually help expedite the results as well. They add the power of real people working directly with your sales team to facilitate everything from defining your sales process to lead management and beyond. In contrast to simply having the tools, our services will assign a team of sales enablement specialists to help you define your sales process, add structure to your training program, build your Sales playbook, and help you increase adoption.
Our sales enablement team is made up of highly skilled and experienced sales specialists with strong backgrounds in sales process implementation and data interpretation. They will serve as extra hands and eyes for management and as virtual assistants for sales reps. With the support of an entire team every member of your sales team will see more success. Managers will have more time to mentor and develop their sales team, and better tools to get it done as well. And sales reps will finally get some relief and much needed assistance so they can organize their approach and close more consistently.
It’s simple, our services are designed to eliminate the friction that holds sales teams back from closing leads. By assigning a dedicated sales enablement team that can help you define your sales process, structure your training, increase adoption, and improve compliance you’ll be giving your sales team the best chance at closing at a higher rate.
