Fwd: Sales Intelligence: The Secret to Sales Nirvana

This is a quote from a recent CRM Magazine article.

This is why I recommend even small firms find and use a good flexible CRM package.  It enables them to gain intelligence on their sales and marketing so they can see real trends and analyze real cost/performance/roi trends.

The phrase "Sales Intelligence" refers to those sources of information that your company can use to improve the effectiveness of its sales force and enrich the quality of leads in your sales pipeline - leveraging external insight to boost sales productivity.

But how are best-of-breed organizations using Sales Intelligence to optimize their selling motions?

Learn how by downloading the Aberdeen Group's groundbreaking Research Benchmark,
