CRM systems are the backbone of sales and marketing activities. They hold a wealth of data which, combined with insights from other tools such as marketing automation solutions, has the potential to inform future activities. However, many sales and marketing leaders are unable to make effective decisions due to a lack of reporting capabilities within their CRM solution. They struggle with difficult and cumbersome alignment between the teams, making it challenging to bring disparate data sources together without a standardized planning methodology.
Through Board’s integrated business planning and analytics platform, sales and marketing professionals can compare sales figures and marketing results instantly with other data sources from across the business for true visibility into what’s driving the numbers and where improvements can be made. This information can then be used as the basis for accurate plans, budgets, and forecasts in a collaborative approach which creates accountability over results.
