Argument-Free Territories

Sales teams should spend time selling, not arguing over new lead distribution or territory assignments. However, this can be an incredibly important resource optimization exercise for a company and a source of growth. Territory assignments and lead distribution are streamlined with the addition of enhanced data elements to keep the balance in check. Define territories equitably using:

  • Industry Type - SIC/NAICS
  • Location
  • Company Revenue
  • Employee Count
  • Corporate Linkage
  • Or other criteria all without the risk of duplicates.
Examples of Data-Driven Territory Alignment

Sales teams focus on the right types of prospects within well-defined territories to accelerate the close.

  • Reduce cost of sales and channel conflict by defining territories on new and existing opportunities.
    • Assign sales and service resources more appropriately to increase retention and drive cross-sell/upsell opportunities.
    • Ensure commission alignment tied to specific customers by corporate families.
    • Reduce duplication of resources servicing multiple locations that belong to same Parent corporation.
  • Develop a better understanding of revenue sources and market opportunities to optimize sales resource allocation. Know how many prospects with similar attributes to best customers are located in each geography.
  • Gain and maintain an accurate view of accounts’ buying centers and corporate relationships. Target the right purchasing location for your customers and prospects.
