Artificial Intelligence in sales is already here and the top-tier companies are reengineering their processes to take advantage of next generation automation. Watson (IBM), Einstein (Salesforce), Larry (Complexica) and Amy (x.ai) are our sidekicks. The key is to channel Iron Man - part man, part machine. Embrace the salesbots for hyper-productivity and effectiveness or be replaced.
Imagine if you could automagically crunch data and prioritize the leads that have the highest propensity to close? Bots are already doing this. Larry, from Complexica, just won the 2018 Innovation Award from the Australian Information Industry Association. Complexica has an opportunity identifier for transactional sales. Say you’re a sales rep in the wine industry. You have hundreds of licensed premises in your territory, and knowing who is best to call and what to talk about, beyond your (yawn) specials this month, is a difficult thing to figure out. In Australia, the average restaurant or licensed premise has 50 different salespeople calling on them every month.

Australian Marketing Institute Provides Educational Session on Maximising Revenue, Margin, and Customer Engagement
To sell more at a higher margin, businesses need to understand and engage with their customers at a deeper level than ever before. The traditional approach of analysing internal data to develop static segmentation models and customer profiles is no longer enough. To drive truly personalised offers, pricing, and messages, you’ll need to use larger data sets, undertake more complex analysis, and do it in far less time. In this session delivered by the Australian Marketing Institute, you’ll discover how Artificial Intelligence is ideally suited for these challenges, and the results global businesses have achieved thus far.

Today, many customers are better informed than the salespeople they engage with, largely due to the substantial amount of research they do beforehand. This well-documented phenomenon – of information asymmetry swinging from the salesperson to the customer in recent times – is manifesting itself across countless industries, and is being compounded by another trend called ‘mass personalisation’. Better informed and educated, customers are increasingly dictating what they want and demanding a more personalised service when they buy.
They also want to deal with salespeople who educate them and provide contextually relevant information, and to not waste time on probing questions that highlight ignorance. This amplifies the pressure on sales and marketing departments, who are finding themselves on the wrong end of these trends and ill-equipped to cope. Unable to reverse the tide, many salespeople are finding their once-lucrative jobs disappearing and being replaced by self-service models, and corporate margins are under siege by well-informed consumers who shop the market for the best deals
Where will it all lead? Enter artificial intelligence.
Businesses that sell a large range of products to a large range of customers are burdened by an analytical challenge that drags down their yield on sales resources. The challenge, simply put, is to help each sales rep answer the following two questions:
- “Who should I call on this week?” (i.e. where are the opportunities or potential problems?)
- “What personalised messages/insights should I deliver in each call?”
At present, most sales reps answer these questions by accessing various systems and databases, where they shift through endless customer data, survey information, and transactional data, looking for opportunities or alarming trends (such as down trends). They manually identify the customers that should be visited, add those customers to their call plan, optimise the plan for the best logistical sequence, and then Google the customer before finally making the visit. What’s interesting about this process is that it has nothing to do with sales. This is an analytical task. It prepares the sales rep for the sales visit, and although it's important to be prepared, the task itself is not a sales task.
Larry is a digital assistant® — picture a “Siri” for your business — which can perform complex data analysis, which would take a team of human data scientists weeks, in a matter of moments. What does this look like in practice? Picture a software client which can prompt your sales reps about what a customer should be buying to boost their business and keep up with competitors. One which can look at all of the quotes you’ve won and lost across your business and analyse why you won some and missed out on others. And a program which reacts in real time to developments in your business and your customer’s, and adapts immediately.
