Actions Using Analyzed Data
Calculus analyzes voice recordings and transcripts and identifies the following:
- Talk to Listen to ratio - Ideal Sales rep should have only 50 to 60% of talk time.
- Mood - Is the Sales rep speaking passionately or reading a script?
- Rate of speech - Is the Sales rep too fast?
- Use of filler words - Filler words aren’t necessarily bad. Some filler words, especially conversationalist ones, are good as they let the customer continue speaking.
The calls are tagged with the stage of the deal to distinguish discovery calls from demos and negotiation calls that happen downstream.
After analyzing, Calculus automatically flags conversations that need to be reviewed by managers.
