In the past decade or so, the way business is done in any given industry has witnessed a drastic change. Actions and decisions are more data-driven, automation has replaced manpower to a great extent and the customer has become the king and queen in the true sense of the word.
As a result, it has become necessary to update old business practices and stay aligned with the latest trends and technologies in order to stay relevant and growing in a highly competitive market. Business is not simply about acquiring leads anymore, customers must now effectively be looked after not only throughout their sales journey, but also post-sale. Simply, the answer to this necessary modernisation of business practices is Revenue Operations or RevOps.
Revenue Operations is the term used to collectively describe the team, tools and processes that are responsible for supporting and enhancing the revenue growth of a company by aligning its Marketing Operations, Sales Operations & Service Ops under one umbrella.
The primary goal of RevOps is to bring together these departments under one common goal of revenue growth. In order to do so, it works towards breaking down the silos between departments, driving accountability, strong communication among teams and ultimately enhancing the company’s revenue-generating potential. By bringing together different teams with different goals, priorities and capabilities, RevOps aims at unifying all entities involved under one common goal, thus enabling them to function as a single organism rather than several individual entities.

|Sales and Marketing Operations||RevOps|
|Each team involved in revenue generation is primarily focused on their own needs and priorities. Sales and Marketing Operations can very well function independently.||When teams work on individual goals instead of a common one, it can lead to siloed operations, which is exactly what RevOps fixes.|
|Sales and Marketing Operations and even Service Ops for that matter, ask questions like “Which tool will benefit the Sales team?”, “How can we improve Marketing Ops”, or “How to better optimise Service Ops?”.||In contrast, RevOps poses the ultimate question - “What can we do to benefit every single entity in the revenue generation process?|
|A sales or marketing manager may think of the strategies and tools that improve their respective departments.||A RevOps manager first understands the roles, platforms and technology of all teams involved. Next, they come up with strategies to improve operations and increase efficiency across all departments so that they are properly aligned and prepared to achieve the common goal of revenue growth.|
Back in the day, business was done mostly on the company’s terms. With less competition in the market as well as limited awareness about the existing competition due to the lack of internet and technology, businesses could create their monopoly, compelling customers to choose from the few options available to them.
In this age of technology, customers are bombarded with hundreds of different options for the one product they wish to purchase. Then there are brand offers, discounts and exceptional customer service to compete with. How then does a business ensure that they not only acquire quality leads but also manage to retain them as loyal customers? RevOps, of course.
The ultimate benefit of RevOps is that it leads to higher customer satisfaction rates as well as a shorter sale closing time and lower costs, the two factors that heavily influence revenue growth. Let’s see how.
1. RevOps helps enable transparency in communication, thus eliminating conflict among teams and allowing for more collaboration between them.
2. RevOps functions on data. By bringing together relevant data from different departments such as Marketing Operations, Sales Operations and Service Ops, it facilitates more intelligent, data-driven decision-making.
3. RevOps aligns all kinds of operations under one common goal to ensure that each team is streamlined and working in harmony towards the common goal of revenue growth.
4. RevOps also includes the use of automation and technology, which further simplifies processes, reduces wastage of valuable resources and helps in increasing employee satisfaction & productivity.
The first step towards implementing RevOps is to understand the current position of your organisation. Then comes devising an overarching plan that encompasses all operations, functions and assets of your sales funnel to achieve the ultimate goal of revenue growth.
