Einstein Tries Sales.

When Salesforce announces his sales forecast with his artificial intelligence tool Einstein, my immediate response should be to try something easier – such as the greenhouse effect solution. In fact, a sales forecast for the Grail years and Salesforce is not the first software company to convince its ring in the ring.

It is not thought that the company had to deal with easier problems, but the success of sales forecasts is inversely proportional to the amount of human participation involved. Since Einstein relies on KI and historical information, I can give it a greater chance of success than many other methods.

Avoid those who meet the forecasts

You know that the forecast is in trouble when it is loaded into a spreadsheet. When the optimization is injected into a spreadsheet format, you can specify all your preferences. It’s not cruel, but the human brain has the ability to play itself and at the same time pretends it’s not. Daniel Kahneman won the Nobel Prize for the Economy, whose purpose was to think about how he began to conduct an investigation into economic behavior.

In any case, Einstein’s predictions do not work. It is automated and raises human hope and analyzes true historical data. It also compares the current information about the history of contracts with sellers to understand where the contract is going.
However, my experience is that this road really requires a sales process or a “sell things” model.

In particular, other AI systems do good business, such as higher retirement options for stores where the budget owner / demo decision is involved, to choose a single easy example. It would be great if the AI system would create a history in one account instead of just finding a bag of sand and the other would be very optimistic.

Review capability

Einstein seems to be doing. It is fully automated and includes the process and key elements, such as seasonality, business aspects and it’s great. Perhaps more important than the prognosis at the end of the sales cycle is the less advertised capacity, called “Einstein Opportunity Rating”, exactly what you expect from such a product.

It is important to get the right score for the new opportunity. It focuses on displaying the best deals, not necessarily the easiest, and it automatically creates better profits that are easier to guess.

You may think that the chance of scoring is not a brain, but that is not the case; Selling agents can waste a lot of time and resources by blocking contracts that will never come.


My conclusion

In order to make Salesforce important, Corporate Investor Group Salesforce Ventures has also announced an $ 50 million innovation fund to promote the development of powerful AI features on its platform.

Salesforce has expanded the latest range of traditional CRMs in recent years and now offers applications in different subspecies and vertically, such as media and economics.

Einstein is an expanded tool that can be used for almost any company or process. Although this is Einstein’s year, where all the elements in the portfolio begin to help with AI, it is good to look at the company that focuses on its CRM roots.

Prefinancing and probability are two of the most comprehensive challenges we have faced with CRM, and it is good to get attention.
