Sales leaders today have access to more data than ever before and as new technologies like AI and machine guided sales tools emerge, consumable data for Sales Leaders will grow exponentially.

According to the Salesforce blog Quotable– “Business-to-business sales is, was, and always will be a numbers game. From the paper-based forecast forms and quarterly business planners of the analogue days of selling to today’s world of smart systems, mobile sales force automation (SFA), and real-time dashboards, B2B sales is ruled by data.”
