We all know effective execution of selling tasks plays a key role in enhancing organizational productivity, and thereby, improving the bottom line. Unfortunately, many companies suffer from low selling efficiencies; a major factor contributing to this problem is manual execution of sales activities, which results in poor productivity of sales teams. Manual execution of sales-related tasks also leads to many errors, further complicating the problem. These issues can be resolved with high efficacy by developing a robust, automated framework to execute selling activities.

A key element of creating a good automated framework to carry out sales tasks is the use of a powerful Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system such as Salesforce. Today, we will see how we helped a leading IT product development company eliminate most of their manual sales tasks, using Salesforce, in a cost-effective manner.
