Retailers Slowly Embracing In-Store Tech Tools

6 Reasons You Need CPQ


Many businesses still don’t use configure, price, quote software in their routine sales processes. Maybe they don’t need it, but for businesses that still cling to spreadsheet-based approaches to track things like price lists and product catalogs, chances are good that they’re dealing with more overhead than they need to. Worse, they’re wasting time and therefore money. The choice between quote accuracy and timeliness is a false dichotomy. Today you need to have both, or risk always being the best second choice.

Swiftpage CEO John Oechsle: Better Interactions Lead to More Transactions


“There are groups within companies that don’t want to interact with a full-blown CRM application,” said John Oechsle, president and CEO of Swiftpage. “They want it running in the background, but they want to access it based on the functions they want it to perform. These small purpose-built apps are going to continue to evolve. Also, people want to interact with software using voice interpretation and voice interaction. They don’t want to sit there and type.

Managing Commissions to Boost Sales Productivity


Ask salespeople and they’ll tell you: They don’t have enough time in the day to sell. That’s not because the laws of physics cause salespeople to move through time faster than the rest of us — it’s because salespeople are pulled in many directions over the course of a day, cutting into their selling time. Actual selling takes up just 36 percent of the average salesperson’s time, a recent Salesforce study indicated. Another recent study found only about one-third of the average salesperson’s time was spent with customers.
