  5. 5. BARRIER TO SUCCESSFUL SFA  The real challenge for SFA is that it must convince the salesperson that it will help them to be more effective personally, do their job better, and help them make more money  It is also critical to roll out quickly to show a return on investment as fast as possible. Sales persons are skeptics and individualists. Because they will always look for excuses not to use any corporate-mandated solution, they must feel part of the process and find that the process has something to offer them, not just the organization.

  18. 18. SFA: THE TECHNOLOGY Combination of functionality and the flexibility of Technology makes SFA successful Data Synchronization: Data synchronization technologies are designed to synchronize a single set of data between two or more devices, automatically copying changes back and forth..  Data synchronization can be local synchronization where the device and computer are side-by-side and data is transferred or remote synchronization when a user is mobile and the data is synchronized over a mobile network. SHEETAL WAGHMARE IIT KHARAGPUR
  19. 19. Flexibility and Performance of Data synchronization High-performance synchronization requires powerful database capabilities and performance, currently available only in databases such as Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle. The synchronization engine must be database independent to allow different database systems to reside on remote and host systems Each user or office can also be given only the slice of information that is relevant to their work. Partitioning the data reduces the bandwidth required to synchronize databases across a network. You can also use partitioning to increase data security by limiting access without requiring all data to be stored in a single secure location. SHEETAL WAGHMARE IIT KHARAGPUR
