Pipeline analysis and reports

Understanding the metrics of your sales pipeline and CRM processes can help you significantly improve your sales cycle. But extracting data takes time, and human errors can lead to losses.

Pipedrive provides an overview of three crucial areas of the sales pipeline: the number of deals, their average size and value and their close ratio. With this visibility, you can analyze your pipeline in just a few clicks and use the findings as a benchmark.
