TAG Sales Leadership Presents: Artificial Intelligence and the Impact on Selling

TAG Sales Leadership Presents: Artificial Intelligence and the Impact on Selling

According to McKinsey Global Institute, 40% of time spent on sales-related activities can be automated by adapting current technologies with artificial intelligence (AI). When AI is integrated into CRM, salesforce automation systems, marketing or customer experience solutions many of the administrative tasks salespeople do today, which impede their selling time can be eliminated. AI’s impact on selling is far-reaching and will improve sales productivity, sales forecasting, suggest cross sell/upsell opportunities, inform reps what steps to take next in the selling process and more.

In this session, our keynote speaker will discuss how sales leaders need to be planning their AI strategy if they aren’t already. In the panel discussion, panelists will discuss the “how” to implement effectively. Examples of best practices will also be discussed.

Keynote: Matt Sweezey, Principle of Marketing Insights at Salesforce and author of Marketing Automation for Dummies.
