With Skynamo RADAR, you have the perfect guide to help you not only understand but also profit from this diverse ecosystem.

You may be asking yourself, “What the ruck can my business learn from a rugby coach?”
The parallels are more than you would think and the lessons to be learnt more than you can count. From managing teams to tackling traditions, there are many lessons from the field that the boardrooms of South Africa could benefit from applying. So, put down the spreadsheets and pull up a chair.
In the heart of South Africa, where a rugby match can halt a nation and boerewors is the national food, B2B leaders have a secret weapon. Just as rugby teams use GPS to understand player movement and how much they have left in the tank, B2B sales buffs are turning to Skynamo sales CRM app to improve sales performance in the field. In lieu of the Rugby World Cup, we’ll show why we believe sales rep tracking is for predictable conquest, rather than petty control.
Hey there, business buffs! Let’s face it, we’ve all been there: firing off a quick message to a team member on chat apps like WhatsApp, hoping they’ll remember that important client meeting or update the latest sales figures. But is “quick” always “quality”? Here’s a lowdown on why chat apps, as handy as they are, might just be the wrong tool for your B2B sales squad.
Sales rep tracking isn’t just about looking for the whereabouts of your sales team. It’s also about tracking sales performance and finding ways to improve.
Field sales teams must always ensure they cover their bases to stay ahead in today’s competitive landscape. Granted, sales managers can only do so much to get there. When managing sales team members, keeping track of what everybody is doing is often difficult. This is especially true when they’re all out on the field attending to their individual clients. Are they visiting as many clients as they should?
A sales manager’s ultimate goal is to get their entire sales team to deliver. When a sales accountability culture is introduced, it means everybody pitches in and pulls their weight. If the company plans to achieve its target, everybody from the junior salesperson to the senior sales executive does everything possible to deliver results.
However, more eager sales representatives may deploy less-than-savoury tactics to hit their numbers. This includes undercutting rivals by offering steep discounts, which can negatively affect the bottom line. Instead of helping, these measures can push the goal out of reach.
Wholesale distributors want their customers happy at all times. An order-tracking system that monitors their purchase status in real-time is the answer.
Not all manufacturers have the network or the means to ship their products to everyone who wants them. Instead, they count on wholesale distributors to make their brand available to markets far and wide. These distributors serve as the critical link connecting the supplier to the companies from whom customers purchase products.
Business relies on exceptional sales performance. However, sales aren’t only about improving the bottom line. Reputation is everything in the modern business environment, and your sales team is often at the forefront of that effort.
Sales is one of the most important divisions in any business. Even the greatest products will collect dust without adequate sales efforts. The better you can empower your sales team, the more inventory they can push. These soaring sales numbers begin with company leadership learning the ins and outs of managing sales team expectations.
Sales technology has been at the right hand of sales personnel everywhere for years. Its development has pushed products and padded pockets with greater ease and consistency than ever before.
That is exactly why picking the right models for your company is mission-critical. Doing so means your team has the tools they need to thrive. These choices extend to the CRM software your company relies on for its day-to-day operations. Therefore, investing in the right CRM software ensures your sales team has the data insights they need to close more sales – sending profits and efficiency soaring.
