Account and Opportunity Planning CRM-Enabled Workflow Tools

Ensure your sales team applies the right skills at the right moment to win the sale and drive revenue.

Help Your Team Keep Up with the Pace of Selling

In today’s fast-changing world, sales professionals need the right combination of skills and tools to identify opportunities, plan strategic accounts and build relationships. We support our clients beyond the classroom by offering tools that seamlessly integrate into your existing CRM workflow to enable sellers to apply the skills they’ve learned, adapt to the needs of buyers and close more deals.

Apply Sales Skills in the Natural Flow of Work

Many organizations invest heavily in sales training and development only to see their sales teams revert to old habits.

Richardson Accelerate CRM workflow tools address this by embedding best practices, learned skills and in-the-moment coaching into the natural flow of work.

Our tools build a practical bridge from sales training to the real-world by bringing the strategies and tactics sellers learn in our training programs into their everyday activities. Our tools are simple, yet powerful, and help ensure new skills lead to real results.

Score Opportunities

Our Opportunity Health tool offers unbiased evaluations of an opportunity, helping guide sellers’ strategies and allowing managers to easily track deal progress.

The tool ensures sellers base decisions on facts – not just a gut feeling – by objectively scoring an opportunity based on 5 key factors (or Opportunity Vitals): pain, power, vision, value and consensus.

As taught in our Sprint Selling™ program, Opportunity Vitals help sellers identify and focus on the activities that will truly advance the sale. We integrate this assessment into your CRM workflow to visually display progress in each area and provide custom recommendations and coaching tips in the moment to help sellers uncover risks, identify their next steps and reach their targets more effectively.

Plan Your Call

Once a seller is clear on their strategy and next steps, the Call Planner gives them the tools to move through each customer interaction with confidence. The tool supports them through every step of a call from setting an objective to detailing how they will kick off the meeting, resolve objections and secure a commitment to next steps.

The Call Planner lets you collaborate with your team to align on desired call outcomes that can be measured against and used to evaluate the success of each customer interaction.

Reflect and Coach

After completing a call, the Reflect tool provides a step-by-step breakdown of the seller’s performance to assess where they were successful, the ways they can improve in the future and what they need to do to prepare for their next customer interaction.

Sales leaders can leverage these insights to:

  • Determine if meeting outcomes were achieved as planned
  • Track how sellers are advancing a sale over time
  • Identify Opportunities for further training and coaching
