Strategies to Build Highly Efficient Revenue Operations Models


    With the increased demand for cross-functional teams, Go-to-Market (GTM) metrics, and improved account management to ensure success, enterprises are embracing the RevOps model approach to manage the market volatility.

    Businesses today need a great alignment between marketing, sales, finance, and customer success teams to get a competitive advantage in the marketplace.  It is crucial to break silos and align the workforce, processes, and data with the business goals to scale their business. RevOps is a perfect way wherein businesses can improve the entire customer lifecycle by offering a holistic approach. Business leaders should consider adopting a RevOps approach to set the best workflows across all revenue streams.

    Here are a few ways that the C-suite can consider building a highly efficient RevOps model:

    Create cohesive and cross-functional revenue operations teams

    A few enterprises adopt a RevOps model by evolving their sales team strategies and tools to improve their ROI. This approach is not an effective one; because it overlooks the other aspects of the customer journey. Moreover, there is a huge possibility that this approach might create silos in the other departments. Business leaders need to focus on the complete customer lifecycle and consider all the touch points that hamper the conversion process and customer success. Enterprises can set RevOps workflows that help to bridge the gap between processes, people, and systems, right from customer acquisition to retention. Revenue operations teams need to evaluate all the gaps in the processes and set policies to enhance the customer lifecycle. It is one of the most effective ways to improve the cross-sale and upsell opportunities to increase the business ROI.

    Centralize the operations and tech stack

    As the market and consumer demands evolve, businesses need to upgrade their tech stack to overcome all the bottlenecks in the customer journey. Disoriented processes and IT infrastructure results in inefficient RevOps. Businesses that rely on a particular department to make more revenue will result in quick burnout. Assigning the responsibility of the Customer Relationship Management (CRM), setting up campaigns in an automation tool, and developing employees to a particular department in a RevOps model will result in failure. Enterprises need to map all the requirements to develop a strategic plan that centralizes the workflows and tech stack to streamline the information flow. Business leaders should consider hiring or developing the best talent to optimize revenue operations and connect processes with people. Leveraging advanced CRM and marketing automation tools that integrate into the IT infrastructure will enable businesses to execute the core operations seamlessly.

    Business leaders who strike a perfect balance between the right talent and tools will help to align the marketing, sales, finance, and customer service to build an efficient RevOps model.

    An Ideal revenue operations structure

    The core purpose of adopting a RevOps model is to create cohesion between enablement, systems administration, analytics, and project management. RevOps effectively aligns the sales, marketing, and customer success teams with the business goals of improving the ROI. Assigning responsibilities with cross-functional expectations will help businesses to decentralize ownership to accomplish the overall KPIs. Enterprises that have an efficient RevOps model ingrained enable them to scale faster; because they know where and how to invest resources.
