Companies have long struggled with how to include Sales teams insights into their operations forecasts. The potential benefits are great; Sales has unique insights into rising trends, market shifts, and new competitors. They are on the ground speaking with current and potential clients daily. Without their market intelligence, companies become blind to the opportunities and threats brought on by rapidly changing markets.

The results are truer sales forecasts that cut waste and improve service levels, reputation, customer loyalty, and the bottom line.
