Salespeople are often given the task of handling many different opportunities at a given time; all of which are likely to be at different points in the sales cycle with varying degrees of sales success. Inevitably, salespeople are left to work with a list haphazardly. With Sales Cycle Manager, after a salesperson provides a few key parameters about each opportunity, the system generates a list which reflects the priority and probability for each opportunity and ranks them to be worked in an order that guarantees the best use of a salesperson's time. This is just one of the many innovative features of Sales Cycle Manager.

Sales Cycle Manager's Opportunity Dashboard summarizes the critical parameters and information regarding the sales environment in an easy-to-understand dynamic interface. The intelligent Sales Advisor tests the salesperson's gut feel on the sale and acts as a coaching tool, to ensure that nothing about the opportunity is being overlooked.
