Accelerate Remote Sales Productivity with Relational Analytics

The best sales teams focus on building effective relationships.

However, there still remains a major gap when it comes to being able to measure the strength of a sales organization’s relationships with key decision-makers at customers/prospects, with the data available in most cases being limited to CRM data (manually maintained by sales reps) – which provides information on activities, but doesn’t provide an objective measure of the relationship strength between two individuals.

Cue Relational Analytics – a niche, yet incredibly powerful analytical approach that provides a lens into how work really gets done at your organizations by mining behavioural insights from internal and external employee communication and collaboration metadata, and then correlating these behaviours with desired outcomes such as increased productivity, innovation, engagement, wellness and reduced attrition, to enable you to nudge your employees to adopt desired behaviours to help them succeed in their roles.

Using several metrics from employee digital communication metadata ( no content is analyzed) such as the volume and frequency of communications, average time to response, % response rate etc., we’ve developed a proprietary algorithm that can score the strength of relationships that employees are building and maintaining with internal/external stakeholders, without analyzing the actual content of communications.

Relational Analytics can help your sales organization close more deals by uncovering hidden patterns in your sales team’s customer and intra-company networks enabling you to identify points of intervention and coaching.
