2014 Sales Performance BenchmarksHow can you use Industry Benchmarks from our 2014 Sales Performance Optimization Survey?

A benchmark report contains charts of the 95 metrics from our 2014 Sales Performance Optimization Survey.  The charts are made from a slice of our survey data representing your industry. 

In addition, we selected a "Best in Class" group from each data slice.  The survey responses in  "Best in Class" are from companies where at least 80% of the sales reps made or exceeded quota.

12 of the metrics have CSO Insights commentary including:

  • Why we track the metric and what it tells us
  • How the industry group's responses compare to responses in our overall survey
  • How the industry group compares to its "Best in Class"
  • What the results can tell you
