Enterprise Territory Management 2.0
- Territory management is an account-sharing system that grants access to accounts based on the characteristics of the accounts. It enables your company to structure your Salesforce data and users the same way you structure your sales territories.
- With Territory management businesses are able to increase overall revenue by ensuring that all market segments are covered.
- With sales territories, it’s easy to keep track of which reps are assigned to which accounts and opportunities. If you manage territories effectively, you’re allocating resources efficiently, so you’re more likely to maximize sales and profits.
- TM encourages healthy competition within your team. For example, which territory will meet its quota first this quarter: Northeast or Southeast or APAC OR EMEA OR AMER?
