Transcript of Inside Sales & Operations Prezi

AE and SE develop an information gathering plan that will include all relevant members of the sales team (including ArcSight Executive Sponsor) to: 1. Quantify the value proposition for the prospect and: 2. Design a differentiated ArcSight Solution. This means discovering not just the business problems and objectives, but also personal agendas, competitors, external influences, partner preferences, and any other compelling rationale to answer the question: "Why buy now?"

It is while in this step that the AE identifies and secures an Executive Sponsor within the account. Your Executive Sponsor has the authority to drive their buying process and align it with the ArcSight Structured Sales Process. AE reinforces customer expectations through preliminary value proposition discussions.

Amount, close date and forecast category need to be updated to the best of your ability. Stage 2 is the first "active" outside selling step and will show up on various pipelines and forecast reports.
