Sales Opportunity Management

'Sales Opportunity Management' refers to a range of features in VECTA which enable managers and users/sales reps to create sales Opportunities and 'progress' them through the Stages of a Sales Pipeline, with the ultimate intention of making a sale.


You may also view the potential and current value of your Sales Pipelines and Opportunities. This will show you whether there is a sufficient number of Opportunities and value within your Pipelines, and whether a sufficient number of Opportunities are being 'closed'. This will give you an insight into the effectiveness of your sales practices and your sales team, enabling you to more effectively forecast sales and plan for the future.
