Track your sales progress and convert your non-winnable deals to winsAI-powered sales tracking
A recent study by Harvard Business Review showed that
“50% of high-performing sales organizations admit having “closely monitored, strictly enforced or automated” sales processes. Meanwhile, 48% of under-performing organizations have non-existent or informal sales processes.”
How do you know your sales team is on the right track?
Or is your sales strategy driven by data?
It is time you start tracking your sales and hit the secret of not losing every winnable deal. Before we begin with the what and why of sales tracking. Let me draw a parallel to Money Heist and help you understand why your business demands sales tracking for growth.
Remember the first impossible heist that the Professor was able to execute successfully?
The heist was only successful because the Professor firstly prepared all contingency plans and tracked not just his team's actions but also the outer world. By tracking everyone’s move, he was able to help each and every teammate of his to perform the heist with success.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Your sales team also requires a Professor to help them complete their heist, i.e., winning every deal. But if you don’t know what help and when they need it. How can you help your team like Professor?

When all the above tasks can be easily automated with the help of an AI-powered sales tracker. Thus, leaving the sellers to focus on more important tasks like prospecting and reaching out to customers.
When the sales representatives are aware that their daily calls are being monitored, it creates a sense of accountability for every deal on the table.

2. Share the Sales Tracking Plan with the Team
