Forecasting = Major Problem for the Sales Organization

  • CSO Insights, The CEB and others state that the sales force will win fewer than 50% of their forecasted deals.
  • Huge amounts of  Selling-Time is consumed creating the sales forecast;  for companies that forecast weekly:
    • the sales manager spends over a day a week creating the forecast
    • the sales reps are spending almost half a day a week.

Automated & Very Accurate at the Push of a Button

  • Occulus solves both these problems, Accuracy & Time Commitment, by automatically producing a forecast that is >85% accurate on a deal-by-deal basis.
  • Sales managers, at their option, can override the Occulus Forecast.


The Pay-Off: Forecasting

  • Accuracy: >90% accurate on a deal-by-deal basis.
  • Time Commitment:  Automatic, the time required to create the forecast is returned to the sales force to do what they do best; SELL!
  • Timeliness of Forecast: Forecast is always based on the most recent deal information and can be produced monthly, weekly, daily or even hourly.
