The Challenges

Prior to teaming up with ARPEDIO, the main challenge for GUBI was too little visibility into accounts and stakeholders. The organization as a whole simply didn’t have the full insight potential it desired into its customers and stakeholders.

All critical information was managed individually by the respective salespeople, and therefore inaccessible to the rest of the organization. Everyone was doing their account and opportunity planning using different tools, including spreadsheets, notebooks, and even post-its for important data.

This siloed approach made it impossible for account managers to share and compare data and valuable insights across teams and departments. The lack of information and collaboration made GUBI extremely vulnerable to employee churn, and made it difficult to create accurate forecasts as decisions were largely based on gut feeling rather than actual data.

The Solutions

Following initial meetings to identify GUBI’s specific needs, an implementation plan to go live with Salesforce and additionally leverage ARPEDIO’s Account-Based Selling tools was quickly established.

In only a four week sprint, using gamification elements, GUBI was up and running with their brand new commercial platform. The new platform consisted of Salesforce Sales Cloud combined with ARPEDIO’s Relationship Mapping and Account Planning solutions – all implemented by ARPEDIO.

The Salesforce platform combined with ARPEDIO’s Relationship Mapping and Account Planning tools have helped GUBI manage internal and external relationships with key stakeholders. Additionally, GUBI can now create and maintain account plans in Salesforce with standardized best practice templates.

The Results

Using ARPEDIO’s Account-Based Selling platform natively within Salesforce Sales Cloud, GUBI has managed to reinforce their commercial capabilities and completely transform their way of managing stakeholders as well as optimize their approach to sales in general.

Today, GUBI has a complete view of accounts and stakeholders. The infinite number of approaches reps used before for their accounts is history. ARPEDIO has helped GUBI define best practices and achieve a unified approach to stakeholder management – everything directly in Salesforce.

Critical data is no longer only available to the individual salesperson. All data now belongs to GUBI and is stored centrally in the organization, making it available to everyone and eliminating risk. By implementing ARPEDIO, GUBI realized the following benefits:

The Implementation of Salesforce and ARPEDIO is expected to have a significant impact on the valuation of the company.
