As with any MarTech tool, getting to know the tool and its benefits is one thing. Determining if it is the right fit for your use case is next. And once you decide to purchase it for your organization, operationalizing it with people and processes is key to its success.

Last month, my colleague, Win Salyards wrote about Koala and its features as an ABM tool. Based on the information provided from the blog post, let’s talk about how to operationalize Koala with people and processes.

Key steps to operationalizing Koala:

Integration with Existing Workflows: Koala seamlessly integrates with existing CRM and marketing automation platforms. Operationalizing Koala would involve training and educating your team on how to effectively use the tool within their existing workflows. This may include setting up processes for data input, analysis, and action based on the insights provided by Koala.

Data-Driven Decision Making: Since Koala provides actionable insights derived from real-time intent data, operationalizing it would involve establishing processes for interpreting and acting upon this data. This could include regular meetings or reports where teams analyze Koala data to inform their marketing and sales strategies.

Collaboration Between Marketing and Sales: Koala can benefit both marketing and sales teams by providing them with accurate targeting and personalized messaging. Operationalizing Koala would involve fostering collaboration between these teams to ensure they’re aligned on how to leverage Koala’s insights effectively.

Training and Education: Operationalizing Koala would likely require training sessions or educational materials to ensure that your team understands how to use the tool effectively. This could include hands-on training sessions, documentation, or workshops to explore best practices for leveraging Koala in their day-to-day activities.

Overall, defining the processes and providing adequate training to operationalize Koala could help your team maximize the value they derive from the tool and ensure that it becomes an integral part of your marketing and sales operations.
