After your company has spent marketing dollars to drive inbound calls to your doorstep, the worst thing that can happen is to have your sales team deal with those leads ineffectively. It’s like fumbling the ball on the 5-yard line, and it equates to dollars down the toilet.
It would take a nauseating number of hours to individually monitor these sales calls in order to identify the weak points and missed opportunities that need to be addressed. That approach is just not reasonable. Even it were possible, the odds of compiling the resulting data in a way that would actually be helpful and usable are slim to none.
So what can you do to address the problem and avoid wasted marketing dollars?
One option: Find an automated solution that marries the latest in voice recognition technology with thousands of algorithms that can analyze the words, phrases and contexts and pinpoint where you are missing out on opportunities and exactly who you should follow up with to boost your conversion rates.
And yes, this technology does exist.
