Three SFA comparison points other than shares

In addition to the share rate in SFA, we will introduce three important selection points.

  1. Are you able to use the functions?
  2. Links with other tools and mobile support
  3. For toB or toC | Suitable companies

①Are you able to use the functions?

There is no point in introducing an SFA tool if you can’t master its functions. However, some employees who use SFA tools may not be able to use them. Choose a tool that even those people can use.

Among the SFA tools, there are tools that reduce the number of times of entering characters by mail/calendar linkage and selection formulas. On the other hand, there are tools that take time to set up and support only seminars.

If the product has a free trial, it would be a good idea to try it once to see if you can master it.

(2) Cooperation with other tools and mobile compatibility

If you can link with other tools such as email and calendar, it is convenient because you can prevent omissions and link with schedule immediately.

There are also tools that can work with employee location information. It’s convenient because you can see in real time how fast your employees are working.

There are tools that are pre-determined which tools can be linked from the beginning, and tools that can be linked with other tools depending on customization.

If there is an API, it can be linked with other tools. API , short for Application Programming Interface, is a tool used to build and integrate applications and software.

In addition, if it is mobile-friendly, it is a convenient function for sales people who have smartphones.

③For toB or toC | Suitable companies

Some SFA tools are for B-to-B and others for C-to-C. ToB is for corporations such as companies, and toC is for consumers.

For example, SFA tools for toB and SFA tools for toC have different customer information, such as the presence or absence of customer company information, so there are differences in the input stage. In addition, there are SFA tools that are suitable for companies such as restaurants and real estate, so it is a good idea to consider tools that suit your industry.

Choose a tool that fits your company. Combining the axis compared in the ranking with the SFA comparison points introduced here will create the selection axis as shown in the figure below. Use it as a reference when selecting an SFA tool.

SFA introduction rate of domestic companies

According to a survey of private-sector companies in Japan, only 9% in 2012 had introduced SFA and CRM. However, when the same survey was conducted in 2018, the result was that 28% had introduced it, indicating that the market size has expanded in a few years.

Improve your sales with SFA

This time, we introduced SFA with a high market share. Let’s automate the business in sales activities with SFA and improve the issues.
