Product Release: Forecast Submissions
Empower reps, managers and leaders to take control of their forecast with the introduction of Forecast Submissions.
Inaccuracy in forecasting is an age-old problem. Often forecasts are made based on gut feeling, rather than having the insights necessary to give an accurate figure. Ebsta’s Revenue Intelligence Platform has brought all of these insights to the surface, and now with the introduction of Forecast Submissions, this process can be streamlined without reps needing to leave the platform.
Reps can confidently submit their forecasts with complete visibility of their pipeline. Combined with predictive forecasting powered by deal scoring, users can view the opportunities truly likely to close, then make commit and upside submissions from within the platform.
When combined, both features enable sales organizations to make decisions based on insight, rather than on a ‘feeling’.
The new Opportunity Manual Forecast toggle allows you to quickly assign a forecast group to opportunities based upon their stage, whether that be Pipeline (P), Upside (U) or Commit (C).
The values for these categories are then automatically populated in the Forecast Submission tab. From here you can preview a calculated forecast for Commit and Upside opportunities which can be modified as you see fit before submitting your forecast. All submissions are then rolled up in the teams tab to make performance tracking even easier.
Alongside being able to submit forecasts, Ebsta now provides visibility of these totals in relation to how you are pacing, giving you a complete overview of performance in relation to your quota. Submissions made via this feature instantly update your pipeline trend chart, where you will see the new additions of commit and upside submitted.
With Forecast Submissions (as well as inline editing), reps can now review their pipeline and manage forecasts without the need to interact with a cumbersome CRM. Using the user filter at the top of the pipeline trend chart, reps have the power to analyze their own pipeline, identify where improvements are required, and update their opportunity details, all within Ebsta’s Revenue Intelligence Platform.
So not only can leaders benefit greatly from more accurate forecasts, but reps can now begin to extract the same level of insight and data into their opportunities to increase their chances of success.
