We live in a hyper-connected world where access to real-time sales information is now an expectation for field sales teams looking to enable success. Forward-thinking sales leaders are applying this always-on mentality to empower field representatives with mobile access to up-to-the-minute customer analytics, granular product availability details, and invoice data.
Equipping sales reps with a stream of real-time sales information keeps them tuned in to the priorities, trends, and performance benchmarks that ultimately translate into higher sales velocity and win rates over both the short and long term.
Overcoming delayed data access
The challenge many field sales teams face is restrictive bottlenecks getting access to vital product-level sales details housed in central CRM and ERP systems when out of the office. Manual processes like expecting sales reps to piece together reports and sales information back at their desk is incompatible with the on-the-go reality of field sales.
Even brief delays directly dampen reps’ ability to capitalize on sales opportunities in live customer interactions. Without instant access to product specs, availability, pricing, and order history details at their fingertips, sales reps lack the confidence and specifics needed to have business-advancing conversations in the moment.
The negative ripples of this delayed access to sales information impacts organizations in multiple ways:
- Missed opportunities – Out of sync with latest data, sales reps miss chances to upsell or cross-sell.
- Weaker relationships – Unable to reference particulars, conversations lack relevance with key decision makers.
- Lower win rates – Gaps in product details leads to losing more deals.
- Administrative backlog – Post-meeting admin tasks pile up for sales managers.
Equipping sales teams with real-time access to product-level sales data is a key part of an organization's overall sales enablement strategy and technology stack. The right tools integrate with existing systems while making information easily searchable for sales reps out in the field.
