Advance Your Sales Team With AI

SM Stationary Branding Mock Up (Volume I)

By 2020, 30% of all companies will employ sales AI to augment or automate sales their sales process.

With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), sales managers now have the resources to streamline sales processes and skyrocket team productivity in groundbreaking ways. Eighty-three percent of the most aggressive adopters of AI and cognitive technologies say their companies have already achieved either moderate or substantial benefits.

With these kinds of statistics, businesses that don’t have a sales AI implementation strategy in place risk irrelevancy. Sales teams, in particular, must combine their efforts with disruptive technologies to improve efficiency as companies cannot afford to waste time and money on outdated, time-consuming or unnecessary processes.

Sales team efficiency

The Bridge Group found that sales productivity is the No. 1 challenge for 65 percent of sales organizations. In fact, sales reps spend nearly 64 percent of their time on non-revenue generating activities. According to the Harvard Business Review, this wasted time and inefficient processes—what experts call “organizational drag”— costs the US economy a staggering $3 trillion each year.

Automation Hero’s leading-edge sales AI platform automates sales processes that are repetitive and detract from efficiency (and selling). Our core capabilities include,

  • Email Intent Detection
    • Ex: Automation Hero accelerates customer engagement by detecting email intent for better department routing, automating personal detail update requests to reduce email overload and handling scheduling by offering templated responses with real-time availability and updating the sales rep’s calendar.
  • Next-step Recommendations
    • Ex: Based on powerful natural language processing and intent detection capabilities, Automation Hero has developed powerful AI algorithms to dynamically offer ranked cross-and-up-sell opportunities.
  • Dark Data Extraction
    • Ex: Automation Hero offers new leads and lead prioritization by managing inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistent CRM records by sourcing information from your reps’ calendar, email, Salesforce account and Automation Hero’s third-party database.

Reliable sales data

CRM systems improve forecast accuracy by 42 percent.

There are several marketing automation and sales tools that integrate with your CRM system that need accurate data to create effective sales reports and forecasts.

While a majority of salespeople tend to have an ESFJ (extraversion, sensing, feeling, judgment) Myers Briggs personality type, which means they are outgoing and charismatic (and great sellers) they also tend to be less process-oriented and data-driven. Meaning, they are less inclined to follow through with important CRM updates.

The struggle for accurate CRM updates is often a point of friction between sales managers and their team. Automation Hero ensures that your CRM data is consistent, constant and correct. When CRM updates are automated, managers don’t need to constantly remind their team to input sales activities; alleviating conflict and leaving room for more constructive coaching conversations.

Immediate ROI

Automation Hero’s streamlined email communication and simple user interface in the form of our AI assistant, Robin, take a bottom-up adoption approach that integrates with sales reps’ current workflow and guarantees an ROI within the first month.

Automation Hero uses deep learning technology for classification, prediction and recommendation, which allows Robin to quickly propose to automate sales processes that are meaningful for the sales rep. Its deep learning system responds to user interactions to further tailor the experience.

Security and privacy

Automation Hero is fully committed to the security, safety and privacy of sensitive sales data. No human will, or can, read any of this information. All data is encrypted with the strongest mechanisms during storage and transport using a unique encryption key for each user.

At no point does Automation Hero remove data from the user’s CRM system. It uses the standard Salesforce Application Programming Interface (API) to map information and is tightly integrated with Salesforce security protocols.
