Sales Management with Dynamics 365


Southland Stone Company found itself at a pivotal juncture, where the need for sales acceleration and customer experience (CX) enhancement was more pressing than ever. Their existing processes were marred by poor revenue forecasting, sales actions driven by intuition rather than data-driven insights, low-quality leads, and a deficiency in delivering personalized experiences to meet customer expectations. These challenges impeded their growth and competitiveness.


The challenges that Southland Stone Company faced were multifaceted. First and foremost, their revenue forecasting was unreliable due to a lack of confidence metrics. Sellers and sales leaders were relying on intuition rather than leveraging data, analytics, and AI-powered insights to drive their actions. The quality of their leads left much to be desired, as they were unscored, not prioritized, and often arrived untimely. The absence of a 360-degree view of the customer meant that they couldn't meet customer expectations for personalized experiences. The need for transformation was evident.


To address these formidable challenges, Southland Stone Company opted for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales. This dynamic solution provided the next-generation AI capabilities, intelligent forecasting, and real-time customer tracking they needed to improve seller focus and productivity. It also allowed them to meet customer needs in real-time. With AI-powered guidance and relationship insights, the platform empowered sales teams to engage with customers in the right way at the right time. The automated sequences, real-time insights, and data visualizations were instrumental in guiding sales teams to win.
