What We’ve Learned From The Last Time Businesses Worked Remotely

    Last spring, sales departments that had CRM in place were more prepared for the switch to remote prospecting than those that used a disparate collection of software. As a solution, a tool like AMPED could help businesses communicate in a natural way and track the efficacy of their new remote approach.

    AMPED helps sales teams to prospect remotely and adhere to a schedule of follow-up activities. Crucially, managers can also see at a glance that reps are meeting their targets. These two ingredients make AMPED the ideal product for remote work.

    You may decide to allow for full-time remote flexibility on a permanent basis, given current trends. More immediately, sales reps may have to do prospecting from home again when flu season hits. Let’s take a glance at three important statistics about remote work to shed some light on the issue.

     

    1. The number of people who work from home on a permanent basis has increased by 140% since 2005 [2]

    Working from home has expanded 10 times quicker than other types of work, so employers that hire for remote positions must have significant reasons. Most remote workers have full-time jobs. If you want to ensure your work-from-home sales team is making progress on KPIs at peak capacity, a tool like AMPED can help by allowing for intuitive tracking and scheduling of calls – and dialing prospects at the click of a button.

     

    2. By 2028, 73% of all departments will have remote workers. [3]

    It’s estimated that almost three-quarters of companies will employ some remote workers by 2028, while 33% of workers will be fully remote on a permanent basis. Sales reps may anticipate full-time remote flexibility in the next eight years, even if they are back in the office for now. AMPED helps to keep sales teams in sync with transparency into the status of prospect relationships and data on whether reps are hitting KPIs.

     

    3. In 2015, telcommuting saved employers $44 billion in total.

    While employees gain added flexibility working from home, employers benefit as well. In 2015, companies saved $44 billion by allowing remote work. That amounts to an average of $11,000 per year per company. (Whoa!) While your business is saving money, AMPED can help your department maximize profits by making the sales process more efficient with features like click-to-dial, follow-up scheduling, and automated data entry.

     

    A unified communications platform has helped businesses that embraced such technology to weather the storm during 2020. By implementing AMPED, you can keep your sales team on track so that when flu season hits this year, or when reps go remote on a permanent basis, they will be in sync while prospecting from home.

    AMPED's tools allow you to automatically capture data and get instant insights. The powerful CRM enables you to organize your sales information, daily activities and deals so you can work more efficiently and close opportunities faster. To learn more about AMPED, visit www.amped.ai.
