Salesforce High Velocity Sales: How To Easily Empower Your Sales Team

In today’s hyperconnected world, it can be assumed that sales processes have moved from physical spaces to the online environment. In fact, Gartner research revealed that virtual sales roles are growing 15 times faster than field sales roles.

However, as virtual sales grow exponentially, so do concerns about making them more productive. According to the Salesforce State of Sales report, a virtual sales rep only spends 32% of their workday selling. The rest of the time is spent researching information, recording notes, deciding which prospects to call, and preparing for the next call. They also have to switch between up to six different tools to do their job.

To fix this problem, Salesforce, at the forefront of modern business technology, developed a solution that is optimized to ensure and enable sales reps to focus on what they do best: selling.

What is Salesforce High Velocity Sales?

Salesforce High Velocity Sales is a Sales Cloud solution designed to accelerate and extend the sales process. The name of this solution is being changed to Sales Engagement. This rebranding is intended to bundle the High Velocity Sales tools with other Salesforce marketing and service tools.

In this way, Sales Engagement guarantees the maximum use of each interaction with the client on a single platform. It can be considered as a CRM extension used to optimize the native capabilities of Salesforce.

Sales Engagement platforms are highly in demand. In fact, according to Gartner, 92% of companies rank these platforms as vital to the success of their teams. Taking into account other stats that prove its importance:

  • 87% of companies have adopted a sales engagement platform.
  • Sales engagement platforms are the highest rated technology in terms of positive ROI.

After reviewing this data, it is worth asking, how does High Velocity Sales help your sales team? To answer this, we must focus on its functionalities.

High Velocity Sales Features

High Velocity Sales functions can be divided into two broad areas:

Integration of external data used during the sales process, such as: email, company information, Google searches, relationship maps, social networks such as LinkedIn, and others.
Automation of manual tasks: send emails, record data in Salesforce, or display smart commands.

Being more specific, their main features are:

  • Sales Cadence: provides sales reps with the best steps to take in order to complete the sales cycle with prospects.

What people are saying

Five Start

Five stars on customer satisfaction and Salesforce appexchange ratings.

"Excellent Consultants. During the training I received by the SkyPlanner team, I was lucky to better understand the powerful capabilities of Salesforce.com. They were very effective, straight-to-the-point, and with a solid knowledge of the CRM and the Force.com platform. Definitively they showed us how to streamline the business process within our company. Great group of people spreading valuable knowledge to make businesses grow. I highly recommend them."

Ramiro Allen — Chief Software Engineer @ TurboPay Limited

"Excellent partner! We have been working with SkyPlanner for almost one year now. It has been a pleasure working with their team. If it wasn't for them we would have not been able to go-live with our platform when we did. They understood our needs and were not only able to execute but guide us in our decisions. We continue using them for our on-going projects. They have a deep understanding of the overall platform. Their team is always ready, willing and able to help."

Ivan de Moya — VP Innovation Technology @ SunStreet

"SkyPlanner was professional, creative, reliable and extremely accommodating. From the onset of the project, it was clear that we had found the right partner. Our project was complex and every time we hit a roadblock, SkyPlanner was helpful in identifying and implementing a solution. Jorge Fernandez [SkyPlanner's Co-Founder & Managing Director] was our primary contact and we cannot say enough about what an asset he was in bringing our project to resolution."

Ryan Borcherds — Marketing @ Deliver Lean

"On time, on budget, great quality on every project. Whenever I get asked to recommend a Salesforce.com partner, I do not hesitate on my reply: Go with SkyPlanner. I had the privilege to have worked with many teams over the years, none have brought to the table the enthusiasm the SkyPlanner team has. This combined with their professionalism and expertise are the reasons I ONLY recommend one partner: SkyPlanner. In every project (and we have done many) they have consistently delivered on time and on budget with significantly superior quality."

Juan Meza — Strategic Business Development Director @ Sony Electronics Inc.

"Outstanding Service! Happy to have them as our partner! SkyPlanner is by far the most experienced and reliable Salesforce partner. We almost gave up on Salesforce thanks to our previous partner, fortunately we found SkyPlanner and they came to the rescue! They took their time to understand our needs and complexity of our organization. Highly talented, professional and dedicated team. I cannot stress enough how happy we are to have them as our partner and we look forward to continue building our relationship."

Nolan Pereira — Project Manager @ BLU Products
