Upgrade Deal Qualification/Sales Forecasting Capabilities
Occulus is an easy to use deal qualification/sales forecasting tool used by sales professionals. Using powerful algorithms, based on the inputs of the sales professionals, Occulus then takes over and measures the integrity of deals in the pipelines to accurately determine which deals to prioritize, pursue and include in the forecast and which deals to drop. Much more than just a ‘lead scoring’ system, Occulus analyzes the strengths & weaknesses of overall deal description, selling strategies being currently employed, relationships with the stakeholders, position vs. competitor and the decision process and timing. Based on inputs to the above elements of the deal, Occulus provides detailed guidance to assist in moving the deal towards a successful close.
DEAL FORECAST ACCURACY: Greater than 90% accuracy on the amount and close time forecasted for the deal on an individual deal by deal basis.
PIPELINE QUALITY IMPROVEMENT: In very short order, Occulus can weed out low quality deals from the pipeline and ensure that sales activities are focusing on deals that can be won (and will close by the stated Close Date) resulting in increased Win Rates.
REDUCED TIME COMMITMENT: Automate and significantly reduce the time required to create the forecast. Sales reps have more time to sell and sales managers have more time to coach and manage instead of being bogged down in administrative activities.
TIMELINESS OF FORECAST: Forecast is always based on the most recent deal information and can be produced monthly, weekly, daily or even after each sales call!
Past history has shown that within 3 to 6 months of use, Occulus gives sales professionals:
- Increases in win rates of up to 50%
- Decreases in deal slippage of up to 45%
- Forecasting accuracy greater than 90%
