Opportunity Management

Opportunity management consists of, first, setting up a sales process. A sales process should be dynamic & Pipeliner CRM is so flexible that you can instantly make changes.

The easier it is for a sales manager to visually see the pipeline and opportunities, the more effective sales management will be.

With Pipeliner data can be manipulated instantly and dynamically and seen by anyone involved.

Opportunity Management Views

Pipeliner CRM provides many different ways of viewing Opportunity information including

Opportunity Management

Opportunity management, in each of its phases, should be totally aligned to the sales target for that sales period. Pipeliner is also unique in this regard in that the target for the current sales period is always in view, and therefore always in mind for the sales team and sales manager.

Pipeliner CRM offers five different target views:

Unweighted Sales Target

The value of all opportunities in a pipeline without any closing probability percentages.

Weighted Sales Target

The Weighted Target is equal to the sum of the total opportunity values in each sales stage, multiplied by the probability of closure for that sales process stage.

Ranked Target

Each rep has the ability to apply a personal ranking to each of their opportunities, from one to five stars based on their confidence in the deal.

Balanced Target

This can be looked at as a “worst-case scenario”, because it balances the Weighted Target and the Ranked Target.

Won Target

This Target represents the actual closed or won opportunities.
