Optimize NetSuite Sales Territories
Effective territory planning and optimization is critical for many businesses. Almost every organization that uses field crews for sales, services, or deliveries has a need for organizing field staff into territories or regions.
In the recent past, the process of designing sales or account management territories was often done by a manager based on instinct, experience, and input from the loudest voices on the sales team. Some modern companies still plan sales territories like this, but there is a better way. GeoBusiness for Territory Planning gives users the ability to create territories that automatically adjust based on identified criteria such as size, number of accounts, population, potential customers, and more.

A Business Example:
Jeff is a regional sales manager for a material handling company and he wants to use data in order to create territories that are evenly distributed among his account managers. Currently, Jeff relies on his experience, sales by territory, and feedback he receives from the field. Jeff has six account managers for the greater Los Angeles area so creating balanced territories has always proven to be tough.
Using GeoBusiness for Territory Planning, Jeff specifies the area using zip codes for the six territories he wants to create. Next, he wants the areas grouped by attributes that matter to his business such as total sales opportunities in dollars by zip code for the last five years, counts of potential customers based on NAICS codes, and maximum drive times. Once Jeff updates the criteria, he’s able to weight each attribute by importance. GeoBusiness then automatically creates six balanced territories based on the identified criteria.
