How Sales Enablement can boost the sales of your field teams

by | Aug 3, 2023 | Sales Enablement | 0 comments

For a long time, Sales Enablement was considered a luxury reserved for large companies. Today, it has become an essential condition for remaining competitive and ensuring a company’s long-term future. Most sales enablement units were created on an ad hoc basis or in response to the loss of major contracts. However, it often takes an additional trigger to put in place a proper Sales Enablement strategy, in order to establish a repeatable and sustainable process that delivers long-term business results.

In this article, the Noledge team invites you to delve into the world of Sales Enablement. What is Sales Enablement? What benefits does it bring to your company? And how can you implement it effectively? Let’s explore these questions together!

“Sales people spend only 36.6% of their time on commercial activities”.

According to a study carried out by the Sales Inside Lab research centre, salespeople spend an average of 36.6% of their time on sales. However, this percentage varies considerably according to a key criterion: the ability to establish a rigorous and effective time management process. Salespeople who know how to manage their time and plan their activities precisely spend 40.1% of their time selling, while those who do not have a clear agenda spend only 30.4%.

The study also reveals that for some salespeople, technology plays a dominant role in their work. They spend 61.7% of their time using sales support or customer portfolio management tools. Sending e-mails is still the activity that takes up most of their time. As for CRM, although it is essential for sales staff, they spend only 18% of their time on it, half of which is spent trying to make it more effective.

These results come from research carried out by Inside Sales Lab, the research centre of sales acceleration platform Inside Sales. The survey was first conducted with 200 salespeople and then repeated with 700 salespeople, with broadly similar results.

The basic principle of Sales Enablement and why you should implement it in your company.

What is Sales Enablement?

Sales Enablement is a continuous, strategic process that aims to drive sales by providing the sales team with the right content, data and training to engage customers (buyers) and drive conversions. In a broader sense, it refers to all the means, methods, tools, applications, solutions and technologies designed to boost the performance of the sales and marketing force.
