AI-powered collaborative Win/Loss analysis: Mainly collaborative real-time learning solutions, but also automates the process of a win/loss analysis on its sales team platform. Sales teams often conduct a win/loss analysis after deals are closed, ostensibly to share information with other sales team members about what worked, what needs to be improved, & how the information learned should be applied to future deals. When a salesperson now changes the status of an opportunity (eg in Salesforce), Shamaym automatically generates a deal analysis report, & prompts the salesperson to add their insights & create a win/loss debrief. These takeaways are shared with team members, empowering them to tap into the lessons learned in relevant situations & increase their success rate in future deals. Automating the win/loss analysis process ensures it gets done every time & gives the team the tools they need to be successful for the next deal. Also makes sure salespeople have the information of what works & doesn’t work in the sales process, improving closing rates by continuously updating the team in real-time. Eliminating missed opportunities to close deals: The sales team platform efficiently integrates learning from past experiences into the day-to-day work process of its customers. The automated win/loss analysis adds immediate feedback & creates valuable opportunities to learn at the moment of need. It will improve an important sales process & the opportunities to close deals successfully. Powered by AI, the platform integrates with Salesforce & other CRM systems to deliver real-time sales guidance, increase visibility for managers, & foster strong team collaboration. Shamaym, Inc.
