Bigtincan Survey Finds Sales Professionals Lost More Than $1M in Revenue on Average in 2017

August 22, 2018 GMT

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--Bigtincan, the leader in mobile, AI-powered sales enablement automation, today announced the findings of its recent study that evaluated if, and how, sales professionals are using sales enablement and advanced technologies like artificial intelligence (AI). Bigtincan surveyed more than 600 U.S. sales executives, working for organizations with 1,000 or more employees across industries including financial services, real estate, insurance, professional services and retail, and found that lack of sales enablement is driving deal loss and impacting revenue for today’s sales teams.

The study, conducted by Researchscape, reveals that sales enablement is on the rise, with 57 percent of sales professionals using some sort of platform solution. However, the study also points to a number of distinct challenges for teams not yet using sales enablement solutions, which are contributing to, on average, more than $1 million loss in revenue for each survey respondent, based on results in 2017. Key insights from the survey include:

“The pressure and advances of the digital era have completely transformed the sales process in the last decade,” said David Keane, CEO at Bigtincan. “This survey shows the necessity for organizations today to have in place a sales enablement solution that utilizes intelligent technologies like AI to help enhance and personalize the prospect experience to close deals and ultimately build revenue success.”
