According to global sales advisory firm CSO Insights, sales leaders report that improving sales productivity tops their list of priorities. But on average, sales managers have less than 20 percent of their time available to directly help reps sell. Also, more than 70 percent of companies are taking at least six months to ramp new reps and fewer than 60 percent of sales reps achieve their sales quota plans. These challenges are resulting in sales leaders wanting better, real-time visibility into how their sales staff are engaging prospects and customers to achieve sales priorities and business results.
"Nearly every sales leader I meet would like to increase the productivity of their sales teams – but they struggle to identify which activities and behaviors will make a difference," said Jim Benton, ClearSlide Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder. "We are excited to work with LevelEleven because they strive to always improve how companies engage their customers. Partnerships like this offer modern tools with better guided sales activities to create amazing sales experiences in this exciting digital era of selling."
"Sales leaders embrace LevelEleven's Sales Activity Management System to keep salespeople engaged in the right behaviors, so that sales teams will deliver more revenue," said Bob Marsh, CEO of LevelEleven. "Bringing ClearSlide activities and customer engagement metrics into our product adds visibility to critical new sales KPIs, increasing confidence that deals will close and sales teams are clearly focused. We're honored to join ClearSlide's strong partner program."
LevelEleven has integrated ClearSlide's open APIs into its Sales Activity Management System. This integration provides organizations a guided selling process with actions sales reps should take at each sales stage. This also provides visibility into performance against top ClearSlide KPIs such as email open rates, number of online and in-person meetings, and total engaged selling time. Sales leaders leverage the LevelEleven integration with ClearSlide KPIs to set benchmark performance levels to help scale stronger results across their teams.
ClearSlide's partner program offers integration access to valuable ClearSlide activity and engagement data to power new digital selling processes and stronger sales enablement applications.
