Answer Tough Questions

Are my sales reps performing?

This Sales Performance dashboard shows high-level performance, broken down by rep. It details their personal pipeline details, as well as the number of open deals still being worked.

Where are we losing opportunities?

The Sales Pipeline dashboard gives detailed information about the opportunities and where they are in the sales cycle. This also allows managers to see historical pipeline at any given date, thus allowing to compare trends for a sales rep/team.

Are my reps struggling to keep up?

The Sales Resource Allocation dashboard acts as a kind of scoreboard for sales reps workload. It highlights which reps have too many overdue tasks as well as the reps who have a surprisingly light workload.
