When sales technologies are optimized, teams note quantifiable improvements in metrics like pipeline, close-rates, and forecast accuracy. So, it makes sense that high-growth companies deploy more sales tools than laggards and achieve a 5 percent improvement in quota attainment as a result.

But implementing the right tools can be tricky.

RevOps leaders tasked with identifying impactful sales and marketing ops solutions must sift through a lot of noise. For instance, 1,200 available solutions across 43 different categories crowd the sales technology market. 

The vast array of options makes it harder for leaders to figure out which technologies to go with. 

To help, we’ve sourced a few of our favorite tools! Then we checked out customer review sites and case studies to learn what users love best about each of them.

1. CRM

Customer relationship management (CRM) platforms help salespeople enhance their daily schedules and prioritize tasks. With a CRM in place, reps are less likely to lose track of customer and prospect follow-ups. CRMs also ensure that information accrued by your sales team is accessible across your entire company in one centralized system. CRMs store customer data and communications. They facilitate tracking and nurturing customer and lead relationships and act as a single source of truth. 

 HubSpot

Hubspot is an easy-to-use CRM platform with all the tools and integrations you need for marketing, sales, content management, and customer service. Plus, it supports hundreds of app integrations (including QuotaPath).

Their customers love how simple it is to use. SalesOps professionals specifically appreciate how easy it is to generate dashboards, reports, and filters, and how smoothly it integrates into the marketing module.

Hubspot’s Sales CRM helps sales teams close more deals, manage client relationships, and track team activities.

Salesforce

Salesforce CRM can be used by businesses of all sizes.

Their customers love how customizable and versatile the platform is, so it can be used by many industries. Salesforce’s resources, third-party integrations, including QuotaPath, and their reporting structures are excellent.

Close

Close CRM focuses solely on the needs of SMBs and scaling teams. It is a sales engagement CRM designed to help SMBs turn more leads into revenue.

Close CRM’s customers love the interface because it’s easy to navigate and very intuitive. They also love the robust filters and sorting functions as well as the automated email tracking function in Close CRM.

5. QuotaPath

QuotaPath is a sales compensation management tool with real-time data syncs and personalized dashboards for greater rep and leader transparency and understanding of earnings and quota attainment.

Customers love the platform because it saves time by replacing error-prone manual tracking processes with automation. It’s set up for RevOps, Finance, and Sales to use, and it’s not uncommon for reps to pull up QuotaPath immediately after closing a deal. This leads to high adoption rates and rep motivation because reps can actually forecast commissions, too. 

QuotaPath helps measure sales performance, deliver results, and drive consistent revenue. The platform helps businesses save time by automating commissions, increasing transparency around even the most complex comp plan, eliminating compensation errors, and driving success.
