Strive for an effortless customer experience and streamline revenue operations throughout the customer lifecycle.
What is Revenue Operations?
Revenue Operations (RevOps) is a convergence of sales, marketing and customer success that drives full-funnel accountability across the revenue engine. The people, processes and technology that power every part of your customer lifecycle need to be optimized and synchronized under one unified strategy to drive the most revenue and profit possible.
Generate unprecedented growth with a new level of operational alignment.
Why Revenue Operations?
Today’s enterprises are powered by marketing and sales departments that are more dependent upon data and technology than ever before. Many times these roles and technologies that are hyper focused on specific functions create silos and operational inefficiencies. This all leads to the slow down of a company’s revenue pipeline and profitability.
Reinvent your business and how you serve customers, without changing what you do.
How Does Revenue Operations Work?
A RevOps approach can reverse this progression by examining, restructuring and optimizing the components of your customer lifecycle. By assessing everything, from lead generation and brand awareness to customer success and renewals, we can uncover what it would take to create an effortless customer experience for your organization. Then, the focus shifts to understanding and streamlining your internal operations with processes, technology, execution and automation.
RevOps in Action: A Frictionless Experience for Customers and Seamless Handoff for Your Team
A RevOps mindset challenges organizations to make it easy to become— and remain— a customer. For many companies, however, the objective is acquisition first then figure the rest out later. In the face of explosive growth, this can create nearly-insurmountable challenges across the customer journey… but there’s almost always a better way.
Starting at the beginning, an organization develops a marketing strategy that helps grow brand awareness and convert leads to handoff to the sales team. The sales team picks them up, works through their own process and closes them as excited new customers. Then, they hand them to a customer onboarding team who has an implementation and training process before, finally, the customer is passed to their long-term account manager.
That’s a lot of handoffs for the customer, and if the process isn’t seamless, there are many opportunities to lose revenue, for the new customer to become unengaged, or for the onboarded customer to be confused about their main point of contact. Internally, there are four or more teams who all need to communicate about this customer and their journey. It’s a lot to manage.
A RevOps Approach to this process might look like this:
In this case, the solution is not to change the way the brand markets or the way sales sells, but to revolutionize and operationalize every handoff point. Instead of sets of Google Sheets that cover onboarding status internally, a HubSpot dashboard with automatic reports reflects the team’s efforts in real-time. A signed contract instantly creates a ticket for an onboarding rep to start their process. Instead of sending five emails to the new client to request information, that rep sends one with a link to the client’s dashboard, which automatically populates status and timeline. Rather than reconciling 100 accounts every Friday, management can see progress at a glance.
Reducing points of friction throughout this process not only cuts down on internal work— and time spent on administration— but also makes the customer process smooth and seamless, helping with retention, cross-sells and referrals, feeding the revenue machine even more.
