Building a sound business case is the foundation for any Enterprise software purchase. Often, we find that our internal Champions are part of the acquisition process for the first time and have no experience in setting up a credible business case structure. By incorporating Shark Finesse into our Enterprise sales process, we can act as trusted advisors. Sharing our own product experience, wrapped up in the valuable outputs that SF offer. This is so effective that we have incorporated a SF questionnaire into our Salesforce workflow. This allows our Accounts Executives to quickly and consistently get into the tough “value” conversation that is critical in any of today’s enterprise deals. We find that it is very rare for our prospects to truly understand their detailed cost of operation and it is therefore difficult to define value and returns. Working with SF we have the ability to surface that “value” much earlier in the sales process and focussing our conversations to where it matters for our prospects and customers.
We have been using the Shark Finesse software for over a year, to help our business development team to develop clear and accurate financial business cases for our new clients. The software is incredibly user friendly and the Shark team could not have been any more helpful in terms of set-up and customisation. It has improved the way that we do business significantly and added a very valuable step to our sales process. It has never been easier to clearly illustrate the financial benefits of buying our software, which helps us massively as we try to grow our business. Our customers have commented on how easy the metrics are to understand, and in almost all cases, our clients will use the outputs and reports to build into their own internal financial reporting. We would have absolutely no issue recommending the Shark Finesse software to other businesses.
