Like that a SFA is also build by providing various features that help in achieving multiple benefits, but are we really use those benefits? To overcome this limitation, one of the important feature is “Automated Alerts” Its use can help the salespeople at the right time and right place.
An automated alert is a notification on the working aspects of the sales person that will do two important tasks for him combining both his Future and Past Activities. Firstly, It will give information about any predefined event planned for/by him(Future Activity). Secondly, It will auto-assist him by pointing his pending tasks for the day/month/quarter(Past Activity). The other type will be the usual information that is important to him in some or the other way. In this way, the most crucial of the business information is forwarded to him in the quickest way possible without anyone’s manual intervention.
Just Imagine, the sales person having the power of up-to-date data/figures/planning about his working even before he has stepped out in the field. His confidence will be on another level when he will talk to his customers. Even Better will be to make this feature available to him on his own mobile handset
These alerts are customized on Industry specific needs, making the most important information Available to the field person at right time. Defining Industry specific Key Performance Indicators to define alerts makes the Alerts of real use.
