Sales Management - Efficient Management for Your Sales Organization

Successful sales management requires the cooperation of two different personality types: The thoroughbred salesperson who focuses on interpersonal relationships and closing deals and the numbers person who strives for structural insights from data. The central question is: How can these different perspectives lead to success?

Sales Management as a Chance

Sales Management: Challenge or Opportunity?

Sales management aims to optimize sales results, increase market shares and sales volumes, improve margins and optimize delivery capacity and working capital through precise forecasting. However, the customer's interests and satisfaction must never be lost sight of.

Sales management must be derived from the business model and strategy, as B2B and B2C business models, stationary and online sales as well as own and partner sales function differently. These differences not only influence sales management, but also the sales process.

Prioritization and Success Monitoring: Setting priorities and monitoring success are key. To do this, the sales employee must know the customer, channel or partner and their contribution to success. This includes both long-term (segmentation, targeting) and short-term activities (visit planning, event preparation).

Synergy Between Sales and Management: Despite initial skepticism about transparency, more effective sales processes, focused customer approaches and improved lead generation lead to a win-win situation for both sides.

Sales Management as a Competitive Advantage: Tools and information: implementing tools that support sales and provide relevant information offers a competitive advantage. This includes customer-specific reporting, planning and forecasting systems that are tailored to sales needs, as well as the use of modern methods such as predictive analytics.

Simplicity and Clarity: The tools should be easy to use and present the quotation processes and their impact on the company in a transparent manner. An appealing design also increases acceptance in sales.
