“WhatsApp or What’s Up with that?”: Why chat apps aren’t cutting it for B2B sales management

Why chat apps aren’t cutting it for B2B sales management

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.

  1. Lost in the crowd. Ever tried finding that one crucial message amid the sea of “Good mornings”, memes, and GIFs? In a chat app, important details can drown faster than your hopes of finding a quiet beach spot in December. With no structured way to organise information, essential data can get buried or overlooked.
  2. Lack of task management. “Hey, remember to follow up with Client X!” – and that’s about as sophisticated as task management gets on a chat app. Contrast this with a dedicated platform like Skynamo: with its slick task and appointment tracking, it’s like having a personal assistant, but without the need for coffee breaks.
  3. No real-time performance metrics. Sure, you can ask your team how they’re doing, but chat apps don’t provide a dashboard to visualise those juicy sales stats. Skynamo, on the other hand, offers live insights and overviews, ensuring that no achievement (or shortcoming) goes unnoticed.
  4. Data security concerns. Mixing business with personal chats? It’s a recipe for disaster. And not the fun kind, like mixing up your chakalaka with your dessert. With chat apps, there’s a lack of enterprise-level security features. Skynamo ensures all sensitive business information stays within trusted walls, giving you peace of mind.
  5. Fragmented communication. In-between jokes and weekend plans, important business conversations can become fragmented and scattered across various chat threads. Skynamo centralises communication, keeping sales talk focused, efficient, and in the right place.

The Skynamo silver lining: the ultimate tool for sales managers and reps
