Today’s data-driven sales teams rely on interactive dashboards from a reliable data visualization tool. Though the integration of the right Sales Key Performance Indicators (KPI) with BI platforms is quintessential. They allow executives across the board to seamlessly track team’s progress toward goals, manage pipelines while identifying issues & setting-up forecasts based on the trusted data. Further, they offer leaders with higher visibility into organizational performance. And for sales teams it would allow them to drill into data while forecasting more accurately, driving more orders & eventually closing bigger deals.
