“Automation is one of the main benefits of using a CRM. A sales rep’s day is packed with an average of 94 activities, the majority of which are repetitive tasks, like manually sending emails to leads or follow up activities, which can increase the chance for human error. Using automation helps streamline the sales process, so that salespeople can focus on what matters most – building and strengthening human relationships,” said Krishna Panicker, VP of Product, Pipedrive.
“As leaders adjust to a compressed state of digital transformation, they want to know which vendors matter the most based on technology investment, use cases, strategic vision, customer value, executive leadership and price,” noted R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “Our analysts have a pulse on what’s working, what’s not and are constantly in touch with other buy side executives. The ShortList™ does this in the most efficient and effective manner.”
