Sales by Numbers: Why RevOps Teams Are the New Must-have Hire


In the data-rich Fintech world, Revenue Operations (RevOps) roles are quickly becoming the must-have hire. 

RevOps are responsible for driving revenue growth through optimising the entire customer lifecycle, from lead generation to customer retention. 

With the rise of digital transformation and the increasing importance of data-driven decision-making, RevOps roles have become critical for organisations looking to identify efficiencies, understand their customer, and maximise their revenue streams. 

The traditional approach to revenue growth has been for companies to have separate teams for marketing, sales, and customer success. However, this can lead to inefficient processes, communication breakdowns, and missed opportunities. 

RevOps seeks to break down these silos and unify these teams under a single revenue-generating strategy that’s focused on the customer journey. 

For example, RevOps might work with the marketing team to optimise lead generation and lead qualification processes, ensuring that the sales team is receiving high-quality leads that are more likely to convert into customers.

It’s an approach that delivers, with some B2B tech brands reporting a boost in sales productivity by 10-20% and a digital marketing ROI increase of as much as 100-200%.


Diving into the data

It’s not just the teams, it’s also their data. With more digital channels and tools than ever before, companies are sitting on a mountain of data. RevOps is about collating that data and turning it into actionable insights. 

RevOps consolidate data from various sources, such as marketing automation tools, CRM systems, and customer support platforms. 

This provides a comprehensive view of the customer journey, helping identify areas where the company can improve their customer experience, optimise their sales funnel, and ultimately increase revenue.


Identifying efficiencies 

Another important function of RevOps is to drive process efficiencies across the organisation. 

As well as facilitating a more joined-up approach between the different revenue and customer focused teams, RevOps also looks at workflows to identify where there’s room to improve, such as automating repetitive tasks. 


Mitigating risk 

By providing a comprehensive view of the customer journey, RevOps can identify potential bottlenecks, process inefficiencies, and other areas where the company may be losing revenue. 

This can help companies make informed decisions about where to allocate resources, reducing risk by addressing issues before they become major problems. According to Adobe, the whole purpose of RevOps is to “make revenue and growth more predictable”.

By providing a centralised view of the customer journey and performance metrics, RevOps can also help companies quickly identify and respond to trends, reducing the risk of being caught out by volatile or changing markets. 

The growing number of RevOps roles reflects the increasing importance of data-driven decision-making and the value of a cross-functional approach. 

By helping teams work together and translating data into insights, RevOps roles can help companies increase revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risk.
