To find out the state of sales enablement in 2016, look no further than CSO Insights' benchmark data on sales enablement optimization. This year's report reveals a picture of sales organizations in dire need of support, with only 56% of sales reps achieving or exceeding quota last year and an average ramp-up time of seven months or more. Long ramp up times, low quota attainment, & less time spent actively selling – all of these paint a picture of rapidly decreasing sales productivity.
In this webinar, Tamara Schenk, analyst at CSO Insights and a leading voice in the sales enablement space, will talk about why that is, as well as uncover:
– How sales enablement has evolved over the past two years
– Why so many companies fail to reach their sales enablement goals
– The importance of having a formalized sales enablement program
– The revenue impact of aligning sales to the customer’s journey

Sales is on the front lines every day trying to demonstrate the value of their product, service or solution. However, they are often plagued with too many tools and inefficient processes, which prevent them from doing what they do best – close deals. According to CSO Insights, sales reps spend only 35.9% of their time actively selling, and to further complicate matters over 82% of B2B decision makers think sales reps are under-prepared.
