Discover why you’re winning and losing business from the one source of truth that matters most: Your customers and prospects.
Trinity’s Win Loss Program is the missing link in your sales process. It removes the guesswork and provides complete clarity into what matters most to your customers.
What is Win Loss Analysis?
Win Loss Analysis is a mechanism to gain a better understanding of why you’re winning and losing the business you pitch for. We speak directly with your customers and prospects, extracting specific, actionable and unbiased feedback about your sales team’s performance in recent competitive sales opportunities. Win Loss Analysis also helps to:
- Identify the best practices of top performers in your business
- Highlight how well you performed against the competition in each opportunity
- Recognise which aspects of your products, people and pitch really resonated with your customers.
Why implement a Win Loss Analysis program?
Taking the time to analyse your winning and losing deals can uncover areas of weakness and missed opportunities in your sales process, plus areas of strength or differentiation you were unaware of. It can also help expose gaps in your competitors’ strategies and attractive niches in your target markets.
Areas where Trinity customers have seen immediate value from Win Loss Analysis include:
- Improving individual and company-wide competitive win ratios
- Helping reduce their cost of sale and sales cycle duration (quicker close rates)
- Increasing revenue growth and market share
- Discovering the reasons for lost opportunities
- Increasing their competitive advantage
- Uncovering sales training and enablement needs
- Growing the volume of pipeline and increasing referral business.
