1. Salesforce incentive management – assuring that sales and business goals are aligned and that sales staff are properly motivated to deliver the right results and avoid compensation issues and disputes.
2. Call center staff optimization – assuring that resources are properly managed and scheduled to deliver superior customer service, provide incentive, track progress and increase retention.
To assess the value of call center staff optimization I recommend that you use Alinean's free Customer Contact Center ROI model (part of a large library of available ROI models).
For salesforce automation (SFA) and incentive management, we recommend using the Salesforce Automation ROI template in the same library.
