Unqualified Demos? Be Concerned. Be VERY Concerned! - Great Demo

Unqualified Demos? Be Concerned. Be VERY Concerned!

In Consensus’ illuminating 2022 Sales Engineering Compensation and Workload Report, a frightening insight was revealed:

“30% of demos are unqualified.  More than one half of this year’s respondents reported that at least 30% of demos are under- or unqualified.  A quarter of respondents say more than 50% are unqualified.”

For those of you delivering these demos – basically wasted demos – would you like that time back in your lives?  (Just say yes!)

For those of you managing the folks delivering these demos – would you rather invest this time more productively?  (Just say yes!)
