Managing client interactions and notes efficiently are important factors to improve business performance. Notes management helps you record client interactions in a structured way.
Recording meeting notes empowers client-facing teams with reliable information required for execution excellence. It enables clear understanding of past client engagements and allows everyone to be on the same page for improved collaboration. This lays the foundation for building long-term client relationships.
Problems we solve
Difficulty in capturing meeting notes
Capturing and maintaining meeting notes is not easy for client-facing teams grappling with many tasks in hand. Sales and service team members find the process of making notes during client meetings very time consuming and cumbersome.
It is not possible to remember all the details of a meeting unless the notes are captured well during the meeting. There is a good chance of missing out on crucial information shared by clients if one relies only on their memory. Incomplete and inaccurate notes lead to miscommunication, missed commitments, and lack of trust.
It is very difficult to access notes of historical interactions when it is captured in an unstructured way in your notepads. It gets even more difficult when you want to refer to them after a few months of meeting. This is especially common in the case of B2B sales with longer sales cycles.
Your ability to come up with the best solution to solve your client’s problems gets limited when you and your team don’t have complete information about your client’s requirements. Relying solely on client conversations in-silos with incomplete information will yield a below-par solution that might fall short of client’s expectations. You might end up with either losing opportunities or unnecessary delay in sales cycles when there is a gap between client’s needs and your proposed solution.
Most often during team restructuring or attrition, details of past client interactions get lost along with the sales team member managing the account. Cost of losing valuable information and personalized interactions built over a period of time is very high. Such disruptions hamper client relationships and business performance in the long run.
B2B sales generally involves many team members interacting with your clients over a longer period of time. This could include members from sales, pre-sales, solution engineering, service operations, etc. At the same time, customer decisions often take time and involve multiple discussions on their current and future requirements with phased out plans. Misunderstandings due to unavailability of all client interactions across the board often hinders team collaboration and performance.
