Key challenges


Manual processes and spreadsheets

The reliance on manual spreadsheets required significant effort, involving complex mapping and maintenance of multiple tabs filled with intricate formulas. This was not only time-consuming, with weekly updates taking up to two hours, but also prone to errors, affecting the accuracy and credibility of data crucial for revenue operations.


Data staleness and inaccuracy

Before BoostUp, data updates were often done just hours before critical revenue meetings, leading to situations where the sales leadership found the data to be outdated or incorrect. This issue not only undermined the confidence in the sales data provided but also negatively impacted decision-making processes.


Inefficient opportunity management

The process of tracking and managing sales opportunities was inefficient, with sales teams and leaders having to ask basic questions about opportunity status and actions taken. This approach was likened to searching for a needle in a haystack, indicating a lack of visibility and clarity in managing sales processes.
