Computer Modeled Sales Cycle

ASPEC creates a computer model of each individual sales cycle based on three skills-based phases – Probe, Prove, and Close. Using the specific opportunity information, the model keeps you focused the appropriate selling strategies and tactics, and automatically updates and adjusts the opportunity based on any change, including user input, sales cycle length, or simply the passage of time. The model also escalates the priority of the opportunity based on selling progress so nothing gets overlooked.

Automatic Probability Calculation

With two simple multiple-choice questions, ASPEC uses the knowledge of the sales rep to rate both his selling progress and the buyer’s intentions, and then to calculate an accurate and consistent probability of winning. This is the intrinsic value of the opportunity; that is, the value to the salesperson of this specific opportunity within the entire portfolio of open opportunities. It is not a dollar value, it is a success value.

Automatic Sales Funnel Prioritization

Once ASPEC fixes the current position in the sales cycle (with the relative time remaining) and calculates the intrinsic value of any opportunity, it then can set a Priority relative to all the other open opportunities and their positions and intrinsic values. In this way, ASPEC organizes the entire opportunity portfolio by its current Priority so sales reps can confidently work from top to bottom, knowing they are focused on the opportunity that is most important right now. ASPEC does this constantly and automatically so the list is always current, and opportunities are escalated to the top as time and action warrant.

Consistent and Accurate Forecasts

Accurate and consistent forecasts can be created using ASPEC superior probability calculation. Probabilities are automatically calculated and updated based on the Salesforce information and user knowledge of the current status of the customer’s intentions and your selling efforts.

Forecast data is exported to Excel or other programs with one click, and available or custom templates can be used to achieve whatever form and content you require.
