The Sales Process

For most commercial organizations, the sales process is inherent to its existence and ability to create profit. Although each company will achieve this aim in its own way, the core selling process remains similar throughout — a potential buyer or prospective customer exchanges money with an organization in return for goods or services. Despite this rather simplistic definition, there exists huge scope as to which approach is taken. Indeed, it is not uncommon for the sales division to be the largest within a corporate structure, employing a team of salespeople, analysts, and the sales managers, who are in charge of sales division operations.

Sales operations is an umbrella term for all the processes and business activities that a key to running a sales division. The sales operation team is responsible for its smooth and efficient running, and to act as a liaison between other parts of company structure, such as IT, Legal, HR, Finance, or Marketing. There is a continual focus on sales process engineering, which is the analysis and refinement of a sales process in order to increase its efficiency or to identify problems within the workflow; other benefits might include the ability to standardize customer response into the form of a process, or as a platform to conduct buyer and seller risk management. A sales process itself is defined by strategy, sales targets, quotas, forecasting and demand; some theories also ascribe to a generic framework to build your process around — Rich, Spiro and Stanton identify 8 steps that make up a sales process in Management of a Sales Force (12th Ed. p. 66). They are as follows:

  • Prospecting/initial contact
  • Pre-approach — planning the sale
  • Identifying and cross questioning
  • Need assessment
  • Presentation
  • Meeting objections
  • Gaining commitment
  • Follow-up

The ideal method with which to represent these step-by-step processes is through the flowchart medium. Using flowchart symbols create the color-code for your sales objects to convey things like who's responsible, critical resource for process flow, risk levels or milestone critical decisions, etc.

Example 1. Sales Process Flowchart — Hunting and Fishing License

The most easier way of creating the visually engaging and informative Sales Process Flowcharts is to create the new ConceptDraw document and to use the predesigned vector symbols offered in 6 libraries of the Sales Flowcharts Solution:

  • Sales Flowchart
  • Sales Workflows
  • Sales Arrows
  • Sales Department
  • Sales Steps
  • Sales Symbols
