Are you loving remote workspaces but struggling to achieve your sales goals?
Is your team frustrated with complicated software that hinders their productivity?
It’s not easy to find the right platform for your remote sales team, but that doesn’t mean one doesn’t exist. Remote sales are here to stay, and there’s plenty of opportunity to maximise your output without bending over backward to keep track of the many moving parts.
The right remote sales software solution offers all the tools your team needs in one place. Using several platforms to handle your sales reporting, virtual presentations, and customer reference management will undoubtedly create struggles and frustration for you and your team.
Forward's digital sales rooms bring everything your remote team needs under one platform to ensure maximum efficiency. Improve your closing rate and reduce the time it takes to complete the sales cycle to satisfy your customers and your team.
Integrating tools into one platform increases efficiency across the board, a sure way to please your customers and reduce demands on your team.
Bringing remote teams together across all relevant platforms allows for greater collaboration on everything from newsletters through Mailchimp to crafting impressive customer presentations to updating customer contacts in Salesforce.
Forward helps you master your favourite sales tools to make the most of your time and reduce lag in the sales cycle. It’s easier to personalise, consolidate, and unify your sales tools to meet your goals and ensure a seamless customer experience.
Expediting each stage in the sales process boosts your bottom line, but closing might be the most beneficial place for reduction. The faster you can complete the sale, the better it is for your overall processes. Aside from preventing bottlenecks that complicate the sales cycle, you have less chance of losing customers at the end of a deal.
"It’s no longer about interrupting, pitching, and closing. It is about listening, diagnosing, and prescribing." – Mark Roberge, Founding CRO HubSpot
Instead of struggling with cumbersome platforms, choose software to improve your closing rate and transform those end-of-funnel processes. Tracking where sales fall through and identifying areas of delay or frustration for customers helps you address issues you might not have realised you had.
Utilising remote sales software for improving closing rates supports your sales team and increases overall efficiency at the sales funnel’s most critical stage. Forward's digital sales rooms offer a 30% better closing rate, translating to more time for your team to focus on new leads.
Data-driven decision-making (DDDM) is more powerful than ever with so much information at our fingertips, but only if you know how to funnel out the critical elements for your business.
From identifying your best and weakest products in test markets to adapting to current demographics, acquiring, collating, and analysing data is necessary. It’s one of the most critical and proactive steps any business takes to improve its bottom line by boosting conversion rates and reducing waste.
Salesforce, Hubspot, and Zendesk are just a few options available to help your team leverage data to improve sales. They offer a plethora of tools to track and analyse data points for anything from product performance to customer preferences, giving your team an advantage over competitors.
These platforms allow your team to automate reports geared toward specific goals, like increasing conversion rates or reducing product waste. It’s easier to adapt to changes and scale your business for long-term growth.
What if you could further enhance the power of these advanced sales tools?
Forward’s digital sales rooms provide your team with a solution to maximise the benefits of your existing sales reporting platform. This pairing creates a seamless experience for your buyers, allowing them to work anytime, anywhere, without missing a beat.
Nailing your pitch can be a delicate process, especially when you face objections and conversations about pricing and payment. Experts can offer a range of solutions for in-person encounters on a sales floor, but what happens with virtual sales meetings?
Your team needs help delivering the ideal balance with every proposal, and navigating that process doesn’t have to be a challenge. Offering your customers quick turnaround on contracts, adjustments, and payments is often the difference between conversion and losing a sale. Implementing sales negotiation software is the best next step in streamlining your processes.
"Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result." – Oscar Wilde
As the world adapts to remote sales with document sharing and e-signatures, the need for innovative sales negotiation software cannot be overstated. Using tools like Zendesk and Dropbox to share documents and contracts creates efficient and effective solutions for many businesses, but it may require using multiple platforms.
Integrating Forward's digital sales rooms expedites the process and reduces delays. The platform establishes collaborative negotiations by integrating with the tools you already use to give your entire team access to the same information. Making changes, covering vacations, and adapting to last-minute customer questions or requests is easier.
Is your team struggling to nail virtual presentations? If things feel less than organic or you’re not grabbing the customer's attention the way you want to, it’s time to join forces with one of the new sales presentation platforms.
Creating sales presentations that engage and appeal to remote customers requires the right sales deck software to meet your team’s needs. It needs to be user-friendly and offer enough features to create an impactful presentation that resonates with your target audience.
You have almost endless possibilities for presentation software, but the next-generation platforms include some old favourites with new features. PowerPoint and Google Slides remain viable options for drafting a virtual sales pitch with unique effects and stunning graphics.
There are some new arrivals with some fun additions, like Prezi and Slidebean. These platforms allow you to play with spatial relationships, zoom functions, and add motion to drive your point home, giving your presentation a unique twist that stands out.
Using Forward's digital sales rooms supports your team through the process of crafting and delivering engaging sales presentations. It’s easy to collaborate among remote teams to tweak a presentation until it's just right. Teams can contribute from wherever they work to ensure your customer doesn’t have to wait for the perfect sales pitch at any point.
Automation tools, including customer reference management software, save time at nearly every turn. Track your success stories, adjust marketing solutions, and calculate key metrics with the right platform.
Leveraging customer reference software is an excellent way to build credibility and maintain those crucial relationships.
It’s easy to fall back on these platforms for marketing solutions, but they offer so much more if you know how to use them. From tracking and managing customer contacts to capturing testimonials for future use, these customer-driven tools support remote sales teams.
Salesforce and HubSpot could be two of the most notable choices, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have alternatives. Depending on the size of your business and industry, go with something more customised, like Monday.com for teams or Pipedrive for a simpler interface.
Forward's digital sales rooms provide your team with seamless customer reference integration to boost productivity and increase your customer service power. Integrate your existing software, including Salesforce and Pipedrive, to increase your team's efficiency and productivity.

Forward's digital sales rooms support remote teams by amplifying virtual sales and boosting conversion rates. It’s easier for teams and customers to sign in and communicate effectively and efficiently to close deals fast.
According to research conducted by HubSpot, “The length of a SaaS sales cycle varies depending on the annual contract value (ACV) of a deal. The average length of a sales cycle is 84 days, regardless of the ACV. For an ACV of less than $5K, the cycle will last around 40 days. If the ACV is upwards of $100K, the cycle will last 170 days — around five and a half months. Since a digital sales room streamlines the communications and number of interactions required to make a decision, our customers have reported up to 20-40% faster sales cycles.”
