When it comes to Salesforce, efficiency is critical for sales reps to close more deals with less administrative time. GetAccept’s Salesforce engagement analytics should be part of every sales professional’s toolkit. Here are the most important analytics sales reps should be tracking, all without leaving the Salesforce environment.
Knowledge is power, especially for sales reps looking to enhance their engagement while juggling multiple deals at once.
Setting up and implementing analytics and tracking can be a chore, though. Administrative overload can slow down sales reps in the most critical parts of their processes.
By leveraging Salesforce beyond its CRM functionalities, sales reps can decrease their time to close. GetAccept’s Salesforce analytics provide real-time insights into:
- The status of ongoing deals
- How customers interact with sales collateral
- How long it takes for a customer to sign a contract
With GetAccept’s Salesforce integration, sales professionals can work fast and make the most of their administrative time so they can get back to what they do best: closing deals.
Why are analytics important for sales engagement?
Sales engagement encompasses the many interactions and touchpoints happening in a sales process.
Common sales engagement interactions include:
- Inbound and outbound outreach
- Website interactions
- Social media interactions
- Proposal and other sales collateral send-outs
The more deals a sales rep has in their pipeline, the harder it is to track every engagement manually.
Many sales professionals rely on sales engagement tools to automate and track their different touchpoints.
With real-time analytics, you can see which types of collateral are making the biggest impact.
Tracking and monitoring analytics, however, can require monitoring different tools and systems, slowing down reps yet again.
Benefits of GetAccept's Salesforce analytics
Salesforce and its integrations help sales reps access and track vital analytics without leaving the Salesforce environment.
The benefits of tracking sales engagement analytics include:
- Easily identifying positive or negative trends in engagement

Powerful analytics tools mean you as a sales rep have more information at your fingertips. This information minimizes your administrative tasks and allows you to make more informed decisions.

2. Explore GetAccept's sales engagement analytics in Salesforce
Once you’ve sent a document, you will be able to see that document’s status in your dashboard.
If you click the “view” icon on the document, you will also be able to see the send-out analytics as well.
With GetAccept analytics you can see:
- The number of times the document has been opened
- The total time spent on the document
- The document’s chat history
- The event log
- The number of unique viewers who have looked at the document.
- The time spent on each page of your document
All of this data is updated live when you open Analytics and will update automatically as your recipients interact with your document.
These analytics help you understand what your recipients are most interested in. Is someone repeatedly viewing your pricing overview in your sales collateral? That could indicate they are weighing their options and signal it’s time for a sales rep to step in.
