Overview of the Client

Business Challenges and Objectives

  • The client wanted the TekLink Team to consolidate or replace the existing reports.
  • The client also looked to enhance the three important sales pillars:
    • Performance Assessment to give access to data and tools to understand employee performance.
    • Coach the managers on a constant basis, who in turn coach the employees in a consistent, data-driven, and goal-oriented manner.
    • Help the managers plan future sales and set accurate goals/targets effectively.

The Solution

  • The TekLink Team provided Tableau Dashboards that illustrate:
    • Developed scorecards that develop twenty metrics to determine the score.
    • Scorecards to help measure the progress of the Territory Managers (TMs) and District Sales Managers (DSMs) for the goals set for the fiscal year.
    • The dashboards help in ranking the TMs and DSMs.
    • This ranking ensures an easy comparison between the tenure cohort (Fellow Employees at the same level of seniority/markets and across the country).
    • Developed two aggregate metrics using Snowflake that helps in scoring and ranking based on parameters.
    • Further, it aids in cluster analysis to determine natural thresholds for different parameters such as:
      • Goals
      • Segmentation of individuals by tenure
      • Market, route size, and many others

Key Benefits
