How Process Roadmap works?
The sales leader who has good knowledge of sales life-cycle followed in the organization has to define the process roadmap in the system. Each stage in the roadmap is defined with set of activities or best practices to be performed in sequence. Optional activities can be allowed to skip.
Once defined, system takes charge of the Process Roadmap automation. It auto drives team to perform next strategic steps to move the lead or deal successfully to next stage in the sales lifecycle. The system keeps track and auto captures the activity data which is essential to bring out intelligent insights.
For example if the lead is in qualification stage and the sales rep has just completed the first call. The system automatically guides to take up the next step – send mail inviting the customer for product demo. The sales rep has to just confirm and start performing the activity.
