Slack is undoubtedly the go-to communication tool for sales teams that engage online or work remotely. Modern sales teams collaborate in a Slack deal room, basically a channel with members including every stakeholder of a specific account or deal. But, Actioner takes Slack deal rooms to the next level by helping your team elevate the conversation, speed up cycles, and generate more opportunities. So, let's dive into the characteristics of a next-gen Slack deal room enhanced with Actioner.
From sales to the legal team, everyone associated with a deal needs to be ready in a deal room to avoid misconceptions about subjects that matter in a deal.
The sales team has all the data of the deal, how the contact/company has been qualified, whether it was generated through marketing or sales efforts, what the planned budget was, and what initial needs or business workflows they were trying to be optimized. The account/deal owners manage the relationship with a customer in general; they sometimes act as a customer rep, try to generate opportunities with upselling or cross-selling, and may even provide technical assistance when needed.
The customer success team holds all the past and current details about the customer's pain points, interactions and satisfaction history with the product or service, and potential expansions or opportunities. As a result, they have the most valuable customer insights.
If a company associated with the deal needs integration, update, custom development, or additional service, the product, and project management teams can provide necessary information about whether it is realizable considering the issues of the developers, the roadmap of the product, deadline of the project, and the required time frame if it's doable, or if alternative ways exist.
The legal department has an eclectic, complicated, and often unexpected portfolio of challenges in a company. Legal reps foresee possible threats and future outcomes when a decision is to be made about a deal.
The finance department is responsible for profit maximization, budget allocation, return on investment measurement, etc. They can support the deal management with financial advice, relaying a budget plan, and forming fallback actions.
All those information-holders need to collaborate efficiently for next-gen deal management. A Slack channel precisely created for a deal, consisting of members with clearly defined roles, is the key to having a great deal room setup.
