Optimizing business workflows and improving business performance are the reasons a sales automation tool was created. Made for small and big businesses, Outreach is a business engagement software and platform that offers lead generators, sales representatives and sales managers an accounting business communications solution to provide prospects and identify potential customers to increase sales opportunities Outreach also seeks to improve the productivity of sales teams by allowing them to monitor and manage their outlook in a practical and effective manner, regardless of their volume.
In addition, by integrating with other marketing and CRM solutions, Outreach users can customize their email campaigns and apply the best strategies for their potential customers. One of Outreach's unique features is its sequence of e-mails and calls. The display panel shows the sequences that will track sales representatives and understand the status of their campaigns, whether using email or cold calling as a technique. Sequences are touch points that show users the progress, details, and content of their campaigns, as well as the responses and reactions associated with them.
For example, in an email campaign, if a potential customer responds to an email sent on a specific date, it is not necessary to send the same email to the contact, but instead, the proper action should be sending a follow-up email. Outreach allows users to classify this type of message as a response rather than a new thread. In addition, sales managers can add modifiable comments to email templates so that their sales representatives can customize their content before sending the email.
Variable comments serve as guides for sales representatives who provide suggestions on how to communicate with the outlook in a given scenario. This feature enhances communication with prospects by providing answers in line with the best practices of the organization. Outreach automates and adjusts communication to help sales and employment teams to reach every potential customer, potential buyer, opportunity, and customer with the right content at the right time.
Realizing What Recruiting & Sales Have in Common
Prior to Outreach.io, Manuel had a former startup in the recruiting space, and because recruitment is essentially a match-making business, he stressed that follow-up was not only important, but it was important to give the impression of being a man every time he did it. To be more effective in their employment activities, they began to develop a tool that would enable recruiters to expand the communication aspect of business without losing contact. But while they built, they realized that this tool would be more effective in the sales area, enabling salespeople to contact as many potential buyers as possible, since they seemed credible in their continuous tracking until leads converted.
Why the Outreach.io Team is So Incredible
Manuel says his team is closely related to the product, to the extent that one of the things that they spend a lot of time on is the daily operations of their customers. Because some of their clients are really interested in email automation, while others are prone to manual and practical communication, they build their tools to meet both needs and everything that falls in between.
Most of their team members are engineers who only care about creating a nice product that best suits the needs of their customers. Indeed, they are proud of the fact that they make three launches a week to meet all the small demands of their customers to make the product even better. Regardless of whether it is a bug fix, new function, or a minor customer-requested change in template language or an awesome icon, these changes are executed as soon as possible.
Outreach integration with Salesforce is another awesome feature of Outreach. Given that most organizations and businesses make use of Salesforce as a sales tool for visualizing and organizing contacts, perspectives, and customers; the platform allows such integration. With two-way synchronization, Outreach and Salesforce jointly allow users to automatically import contacts and lead from Salesforce to Outreach, and all contact information updates are reflected in both systems. When contacts are imported already from Salesforce, Outreach can arrange them on two levels namely: accounts and leads.
Sales teams can choose between the two levels of organizing contacts that they like better. This feature simplifies contact and prospect management so that sales people can work more professionally in their sales tasks. An analysis of training in Outreach is also considered one of its most interesting features. With this feature, sales managers can review the performance of their representatives and determine the maximum and minimum performance. Since the platform provides reports on the activities of sales representatives in each section or account, sales managers could provide better training to their staff to improve their performance and strengthen sales processes.
