The Current B2B SaaS Buyer Experience

How B2B SaaS Sales Work

In the B2B SaaS industry, selling software to businesses involves a series of steps. It starts with finding potential customers and nurturing relationships to eventually closing deals. However, this process can take a long time due to various reasons. 

One of the main challenges is that the B2B buying experience is becoming complex and overwhelming and results in the buying journey feeling like navigating a maze. Overwhelmed buyers tend to disengage, make no decisions, and are frustrated, which means the sales performance of the selling company decreases and along with it, their sales velocity too.

The Problems in the Buyer Experience

The current buyer experience in B2B SaaS can be overwhelming. Buyers are bombarded with loads of information, making it difficult to make decisions. Moreover, the decision-making process involves multiple people, leading to delays and confusion.

Did you know that The average B2B sales process involves approximately six to eight stakeholders on the buyer's side?

Challenges Faced by Sales Teams

Collaborating effectively with buyers is a challenge for sales teams.  However, traditional methods like emails and phone calls can be slow and inefficient. This results in disengaged buyers, and leads to loss of sales and low sales velocity. Personalising the buyer journey is another challenge, as buyers expect tailored solutions.

Impact on Sales and Revenue

The current buyer experience negatively affects sales and revenue. Long sales cycles mean it takes more time and effort to close deals, resulting in slower revenue growth. 

The difficulties in the sales process also lower conversion rates and can lead to lost opportunities. Moreover, dissatisfied buyers are less likely to continue doing business, impacting future sales.

Did you know that personalised dales experiences can reduce marketing and sales costs by up to 20%?

To address these challenges, businesses can use sales enablement platforms like Forward, and take advantage of tools like digital sales rooms. These tools simplify the buying journey, improve collaboration between buyers and sellers, and provide personalised experiences for both buyers and sellers. 

By leveraging digital sales rooms, businesses can transform their B2B SaaS buying experience and achieve better efficiency and more closed deals.

Introducing Digital Sales Rooms

So, what are digital sales rooms? Digital sales rooms are like virtual collaborative spaces that transform the B2B SaaS buying experience. They bring together all the important information and resources needed to close a deal in one convenient location.

What Can Digital Sales Rooms Do?

Real World Success: Transforming Buyer Engagement With Gyfti and Forward's Digital Sales Room

Gyfti is an innovative SaaS platform specialising in personalised gifts, cards, and curated object boxes. At its core, Gyfti's mission is to revolutionise client interactions by delivering exceptional and personalised experiences. They aim to set a new standard for establishing meaningful connections and leaving lasting impressions.

The Challenge: Reimagining Engagement for a Personal Touch

In the conventional paradigm of client engagement, Gyfti’s interactions with prospective buyers primarily revolved around exchanging emails, attachments, and standard-issue presentations. 

This traditional approach proved to be riddled with challenges. 

Despite Gyfti's mission to help clients offer personalised and exceptional experiences, their own sales cycle was vanilla and didn’t differentiate them enough. It was mostly managed through commonplace email threads.

Standing out from the competition and creating a "wow" factor to secure initial meetings proved challenging. Relying solely on emails wasn't effective, especially with the sea of competitors vying for the same prospects' attention.

  • Over-Reliance on Emails: Excessive email exchanges, particularly with enterprise clients, lead to cluttered inboxes and important content getting buried. This made it challenging to maintain prospect engagement, often resulting in lost momentum and potential deals falling through.
  • Standard-Issue Presentations: Wasted hours trying to personalise presentations and proposals to cater to the specific needs or interests of individual buyers.
  • Difficulty in Tracking Engagement: Once the proposal was emailed, Gyfti was left in the dark about its status. They didn't know if the buyer had read it, shared it, or even opened it. This uncertainty made it challenging to determine the right time for a follow-up, often resulting in ill-timed interactions and difficulty in maintaining prospect engagement.

Consequently, Gyfti found themselves grappling with a crucial challenge: how to start delivering a buyer experience that would be in line with their actual business philosophy–exceptional and personalised experiences. 

They knew they needed to craft an engagement strategy that not only transcended the limitations of conventional communication but also immersed clients in an innovative and distinctive journey.

The Solution: Enter Forward's Digital Sales Room

Forward redefines client engagement with cutting-edge digital sales rooms. The interactive and immersive platform goes beyond traditional methods, allowing businesses to engage potential clients in a unique way. 

With Forward's technology, Gyfti can now revolutionise the buying journey into an exciting and distinctive encounter by delivering exceptional and personalised experiences.

  • Personalised and Dedicated Environment: Gyfti's value proposition is now shared in personalised and branded spaces that wow prospects and differentiate them from the rest of the crowd. 
  • Engaging Multimedia: Interactive product demos, videos, and presentations bring their value proposition to life. It helps buyers visualise how Gyfti's product and service can help them improve their own business.
  • Hands-On Exploration: Clients can interact directly with the content and better understand consumer information.
  • Real-Time Collaboration: Seamless discussions between Gyfti's team and clients address queries promptly.

The Results: An Overhauled Engagement Experience

FORWARD helped Gyfti streamline their sales process, simplifying the challenges of traditional methods. This personalised approach ensures a seamless and user-friendly experience, ultimately leading to a better win rate and a shorter sales cycle.

  • Streamlined Engagement: Digital Sales Rooms streamlined the buying process, reducing confusion and complexities.
  • Enhanced Clarity: Interactive tools brought clarity, reducing misunderstandings and improving communication.
  • Innovative Experience: Dynamic presentations and immersive exploration rekindled excitement and engagement.
  • Personalised Solutions: Real-time collaboration allowed tailored solutions to meet specific client need
Forward revolutionized our approach. The buying experience it offers is unparalleled, setting us apart and giving us the edge to impress clients. It's truly invaluable. - Marwane Chorfi, Co-founder of Gyfti
