‘A good sales professional builds a relationship with their customers, and those relationships take hard work to maintain. We have added AI throughout our Sales products to help support sales people in that.
Learn how we use AI and ML techniques to tell sales people important things about their customers and deals that they didn’t already know. These include flagging the deals most likely to win, prioritising the right kind of deals to hit short-term targets and taking the next best actions to improve win rates.
This discussion looks at how AI helps make the sales process more effective and efficient to help businesses thrive.’
