As with any technology selection, the solution needs to the one that is best aligned to the use cases and business challenges that you are looking to solve.

Before evaluating a sales enablement platform, I feel it’s important to understand your current sales process. Take some time to evaluate what has worked and what doesn’t work within your existing process. Define why your clients have purchased from you and why you have lost deals. 

Also, don’t forget the client/prospect in this process. Depending on your product or solution, there may be privacy and confidentiality concerns, especially if considering call recording or learning management platforms where a trainer may be listening in on active conversations with prospects.
