At this point in the year, scrutinous companies review their sales performance against their targets and determine if any changes need to be made to their team if performance is lacking. The challenge then becomes how do you perform these reviews? How do you identify areas of concern? These identified areas need to be properly understood first. What is causing these issues? How do you implement changes based on what you find? This half-year review can become a lengthy process and creates an unnecessary burden on administrators. One of the most efficient ways to review is by using a Sales Performance Management (SPM) solution.
To best review your business, you need a system that can effectively track the progress, successes, and shortcomings of your sales team. You need to see the performance of your team against their sales targets, with tangible, visible, and measurable metrics that provide clarity on the areas that need improvement. An ideal system also must track your growth against company goals, allowing you to compare and see if you are on target with your growth plans.

It is also beneficial to insight into individual sales performance, allowing you to identify and reward your star performers and provide support for those who need the extra help.
