Limited Expertise and Capacity to Address Analytics Backlog
Twilio had a backlog of CRM Analytics user stories from various sales stakeholders and did not have the internal delivery capacity or platform expertise to address these needs in a timely manner. They expressed a desire for support through Elevate, our managed services offering, to help manage and extend their existing dashboards.
With disparate data sources, Twilio struggled to have full insight into deal health and forecast accuracy. Equally important, Twilio wanted to identify where there was whitespace in order to maximize their investment to cross/upsell.
Prioritized Prospecting, Pipeline and Deal Visibility, and Consumption Forecasting
We designed and implemented an Email Prospecting dashboard that exposes baseline recurring revenue (cMRR) and monthly invoice billing to help ensure an AE’s forecasted usage matches the actual usage metrics and the customer is investing in the right package.
Twilio’s email team (SendGrid) needed a solution to help them identify accounts that have available opportunities and show relevant information needed to dive deeper into the account. Within this dashboard, we have models scoring each account based on their potential opportunity size and ranks the opportunity size.
We delivered dashboards with a holistic view into pipeline generation and deal health with filtering capabilities to drill down by lead source, accounts, AEs, etc.
In addition, we implemented consumption-based forecasting with actionable insights for AEs to understand a customer’s usage and spend, and subsequently take corrective actions to ensure the consumption of Twilio’s products/services are achieved and maximized.
$14M Annual Benefit in First Year via Productivity and New Pipeline
As a result of these improvements, Twilio saw a $14M annual benefit within the first year — in addition to a 19% win rate improvement, a 10% increase in quota achievement, and a 13% median days to close improvement. With a boost in accessibility, actionability, and efficiency, the Twilio team can know more and win faster.
