Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

Mobile, relationship intelligence, and sales coaching are necessities for today’s sales organization and are pervasive capabilities for every sales automation solution category. No vendor solely offers these capabilities without complementing them with other functions. Instead, they are embedded across the categories mentioned above. For example, sales content management providers cannot compete without extensive mobile expertise; market intelligence and customer success do not work without relationship intelligence; and sales coaching is not constrained only to the sales performance management vendors.

When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component.

An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.
