Why use Sales Dashboards?

Sales teams operate in a fast-paced, target-oriented environment. Ask any sales person and she’ll know exactly how she’s performing that month – and whether she’ll hit her sales target. Sales Dashboards provide an at-a-glance window into your team’s performance so you can help your organization crush its revenue targets.

What are Sales Leader Boards?

indicators and business metrics. An effective sales dashboard informs teams of issues and items that require immediate attention, including sales targets or issues.

Sales dashboards translate data into easily consumable pieces of information, providing you with instant insight about your business. While your CRM, such as Salesforce, will track your accounts, opportunities, and leads, it often lacks a concise overview of your current performance in real-time. Dashboards within CRMs have traditionally missed the mark when it comes to real-time monitoring.

The role of a sales dashboard isn’t to replace your CRM; a sales dashboard will pull the most actionable information from your CRM and present it your team in an easily consumable format. A common example of a sales dashboard is the sales leaderboard.

It’s used as a motivational tool to foster friendly competition among internal sales teams. Sales dashboards are a great venue for leaderboards because they provide a way to pull the data in, and a graphical interface to display the data.
