Sales

Let’s face it—your sales team already has its hands full. Between daily prospecting, cold calling, nurturing relationships, territory planning, and travelling, it’s easy to understand why it may sometimes feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get the job done. Fortunately, Workbooks’ mapping tool can help your team stay ahead of the game by putting time back on their side.

Our mapping tool can help your team make territory planning and travel more efficient and productive by showing them the geo location of their prospects and customers and the most effective routes to take when they’re traveling to visit them. If for instance your team needs to make a trip to see a customer in New York, they could also use the tool to look up other customers or prospects within a certain radius of the location in order to maximize both their route and their time.

The tool can further be leveraged by sales managers in order to help define sales strategies. For instance, sales managers can use the mapping tool to identify the highest density of customers and prospects – by using a heat map of targets. This information can then be leveraged in order to fuel decisions about where to base your sales teams or distribution centres in order to optimize output.

And let’s not forget that Workbooks CRM can help support pipeline efficiency and smarter pipeline management due to the numerous other functionalities it provides. Workbooks CRM can help your team track leads through the sales process, and provide them with a clearer understanding of the number of deals that are required at each stage in order to meet and exceed targets. When a CRM system underpins your sales process, you can effectively ensure that your entire sales team shares a common methodology and has a thorough understanding of where their prospects are in the pipeline in order to address their needs in a more effective manner. This in turn helps to improve forecasting and sales execution, conversion rates, drive best practices and increase revenue.

Marketing

The benefits of our mapping tool extend well beyond your sales team. It can also help your marketing team make smarter, more informed decisions and influence strategic planning for the better.  

Our mapping tool can assist your marketing team in crafting more precise and impactful campaigns and events. For example, marketers can easily draw up targets for a particular event by identifying prospects located within a certain range of the event location (i.e. “50 miles from London”).  

Ideal locations can also be easily identified at the click of a button for events and campaigns based on the density of your customers. For example, if you find that a large portion of your customer base is located in or around the Los Angeles area, then this information can be used in order to define where to organize your annual customer conference for example. 

But again, Workbooks CRM has many other features that can support marketers. You can run effective campaigns and events; you’re better able to manage your suppliers because all the relevant information and transactions are in one place; you can manage your team’s workload better, prioritize your marketing resources effectively and ensure your sales teams follows up the leads most likely to convert; you can manage data, profile customers and target more effectively.
