No matter how much data is available today, companies frequently have questions about sales metrics. Which measurements should be tracked? How frequently should they be monitored? And how do you actually calculate them?

This in-depth sales metrics glossary was created to answer those questions, along with many more. It features a list of 30 different KPIs worth measuring, includes ones you should track every day, advanced metrics, and leading indicators that can help your business proactively stay on top of sales performance.

Each glossary entry explains what the metric is, as well as how Rekener (now Brainshark) can help you calculate it using CRM data.

Without further ado, here's what we hope is the only sales metrics glossary you will ever need!
