Susan Taker, Sales Manager of InnovaGas, a subsidiary of Innova, the leading industrial gas producer, is thinking about how she could increase the share of new sales by implementing a simple, effective strategy by the end of this month.
Susan wants to help her salespeople to increase new sales by using a management tool that enables them to define the certainty of closing sales.
By factoring in the success change and adding up all the potential, Susan would get the best forecast of the new business for the rest of the year.
If the salesperson can influence the chance of success and reduce the time to get the sales project on-stream by using the management tool, then these visits become the priority sales action for 2020.
