Improper Deal Qualification

The sales team lacked a structured approach to qualify deals effectively, impacting tailored demos and accurate forecasting.

Unclear Sourcing in Reporting

Difficulty in quickly identifying the source of SQLs and Opportunities in reports, with a need to distinguish between marketing, sales, partner, and referral influences.

"Eric and the entire revpartners team have taken our ops department to an entire new level. Prior to them arriving, our CRM was extremely messy and we really didn't have any in-house HubSpot experts.
They were able to come in and make quick changes that have changed the way we analyze leads, deals, pipelines, accounts, and more. 5/5 stars!"
