Sales Productivity Killers, whats holding you back?

Hi we're from Sales Operations here to help your productivity, can we get 20% of your weekly time on these new processes to help? doh!


Too many meetings, 1-1 too often or poorly run?


Anything of value you do see and recommend?

Right now the extra internal spreadsheets I have to manually fill out even though I've already submitted the info internally online for a state contract. Oh and I'm making like 2 bucks off the deal.Β

Trying to navigate between CS teams. Please align sales rep and cs rep. I don't want 10 accounts and 6 cs reps. I'd rather have 10 accounts and 1-2 cs reps.

At the moment, we’re onboarding 1 new AE and waiting to onboard 2 SDR’s. So we’re working quite a bit on the onboarding checklist and process, taking a good chunk of my day

First of all, LOVE the name, best movie ever!

So you as a seller are onboarding newbies, yes that's a misaligned strategy that could cost sales time..small company, no training team yet?

Love it!

Small company, yes. I’ve been the only seller here since a year and a half and we’re scaling now.Β

Lack of investment in automation of non value added process. Totally drives me crazy. ie...fill this out instead of having it automatically pull from the system with the data.

Updating management. Via spreadsheets, via emails, via pings, via calls. It's a time waste.Β
