CHANNEL INSIGHTS
ARE PROGRAM POWER
INSIGHTS EXP / Channel Insights drive effective channel management

What channel insights do you really need? When faced with this question most sales and marketing professionals want enough information to accurately forecast. To produce better forecasts they need more information than what channel partners or internal systems provide today.

Better forecasting requires channel insights into the brand’s complete sales funnel from top to bottom. What is the level of brand awareness in local key markets? How many leads are being worked in the channel? What are the channel’s conversion rates at each stage of the sales funnel? Is there enough happening to make sales goals this month, quarter or year?

What if there was one platform that could not only provide these channel insights, but also help you do something about areas of weakness?
