No matter how large or small your team is, every organization can benefit from automating their sales process. In fact, if your organization has any plans to expand and more effectively compete in your industry, automation should be a critical element of your plan. Companies using sales or marketing automation can expect a 53% higher conversion rate, resulting in 3.1% higher annualized revenue growth and 10% average increase in sales-pipeline contribution with automation (source).
But it goes deeper than increased revenue. Utilizing a performance management system such as LevelEleven also saves managers and team member’s time.

It’s no secret that sales teams have a lot on their plates, automating processes eliminates time-consuming tasks and allows team members to use their working hours more efficiently.
