CDP: Manage leads

The Manage leads section in the CDP panel is a useful tool especially for the departments that cooperate with leads on a daily basis. Sales funnels facilitate analysis and management of sales processes mainly in the B2B sector and the offline channel. The sales process is divided according to a trade negotiation stage and the likelihood of signing a contract (this probability increases together with the negotiation progress). A sales funnel itself represents many sales activities as a whole. The realization of the sales process consists of moving the prospects (after having fulfilled the proper conditions) to the next stages in a sales funnel towards contract signing.
This is how an exemplary sales funnel looks like.

1. How does it work?

In the Manage leads panel, you will not create a new sales funnel, however, you will easily manage your own sales processes within your own customer group. An individual salesperson will get direct access to their own customers. Each system user will only see the contacts they own.


You have already created the sales funnel which shows the contact flow starting from adding to the system, finishing at gaining the customer status. Such a funnel may contain thousands of contacts on each level, which makes constitutes a problem for salespeople to organize their work. Thanks to the Manage leads section, particular salespeople will see only their own contacts and will be able to monitor the funnel stages the contacts are currently at. Thus, they will also select easily the customers to contact first, will determine operational priorities, will analyze their effectiveness and will identify the potential problems in the funnel.

You can sort a funnel stage by:

a) date contact was added to the stage:

  • newest first
  • oldest first

b) date contact was created:

  • newest first
  • oldest first

c) scoring :

  • highest first
  • lowest first

IMPORTANT:  You can choose only one sorting type for all funnel stages. Once you change the sorting option in any of the stages, other ones will be automatically sorted the same way.
