Zoom IQ for Sales: What You Need to Know

After experiencing a surge in popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic, Zoom has since expanded its portfolio of solutions, entering into the CCaaS and conversational analytics spaces. Zoom IQ for Sales is its first solution in the latter field.

What Is Zoom IQ for Sales?

Zoom IQ for Sales is a conversation intelligence software that listens to sales conversations across the Zoom Meetings and Zoom Contact Center platform to gain meaningful and actionable insights. These insights aim to improve seller performance and customer satisfaction.

In the video below, Josh Dulberger, Head of Product, Data, and AI, at Zoom, talks exclusively with CX Today, discussing the solution in more detail.

As Dulberger suggests, the solution uses cutting-edge AI to highlight particular customer reactions, evaluate selling skills, and isolate possible pain points within the conversation.

While the move is the company’s first official foray into sales automation and analytics software, Dulberger suggests many more to come – as does Zoom’s May 2022 acquisition of bot provider Solvvy.

Such innovations and deals are enabling Zoom to meet impressive revenue projections, with Verified Market Research estimating that its value could grow to a whopping $7.3 billion by 2028.

How Does Zoom IQ for Sales Work?

Zoom IQ for Sales allows users to review metrics, compare performance across the sales team, and pinpoint individual improvement opportunities.

These metrics also help to identify excellent sales calls for reward and recognition, while users can take clips from the recordings and share them as examples of best practice.

For users to start using Zoom IQ, admins must purchase the appropriate licenses and assign Zoom IQ participants. After this, all participating sales personnel will have all their Zoom meetings recorded and sent to the cloud – so long as they provide consent.

Once a meeting is over, the cloud recording gets automatically transcribed and analyzed by Zoom IQ’s powerful statistical algorithms to reveal valuable metrics and analytics.

Then, it is left to managers to review this data and extract insights – which should not prove too difficult, thanks to Zoom IQ’s user-friendly web portal.
