With Einstein Lead Scoring from Salesforce - a key capability of Sales Cloud Einstein - sales reps can convert more leads, faster. Using artificial intelligence to automatically analyze your company’s historical sales data, Einstein Lead Scoring determines whether or not a lead is likely to convert to an opportunity. Sales teams can segment and prioritize the leads they are working for faster lead conversion using Einstein’s predictive intelligence.

Summit Technologies customization and implementation services will enable your company to get the most value from our Sales Cloud Einstein and set your sales reps up for success.

The factors that Einstein Lead Scoring uses to predict conversion potential are displayed on each lead record in Salesforce, aiding sales reps to prepare for every call and interaction quickly. How does Einstein Lead Scoring work with your data?

Einstein Lead Scoring models are built specifically and uniquely for each customer and organization. Einstein Lead Scoring analyzes all the standard and custom fields for the Lead object and then runs different predictive models such as Logistic Regression, Random Forests, and Naive Bayes. Einstein Lead Scoring automatically selects the best model based on sample datasets. Sales Cloud Einstein does the heavy lifting by determining the best model to drive lead conversion.

Your models are updated monthly ensuring you have the most accurate predictions for your leads. Leads are scored on an hourly basis using the latest model. When something changes with a lead it is rescored within the next hour!

The backend power behind Einstein Lead Scoring is the machine learning that improves the accuracy of Einstein’s predictions. If Einstein discovers that certain job titles in specific industries who view demos of a particular product are great leads, the data model will update the lead score of your leads meeting the newly discovered criteria providing sales reps with a fresh batch of hot leads to work.

Studies show that companies using AI spend less time figuring out what to do and more time actively growing revenue. Einstein Lead Scoring empowers your company to spend more time selling and less time prospecting.

Einstein Lead Scoring discovers an insight, predicts the likelihood of the lead converting, and provides direct insight into how the new score was determined automatically.

When you can work leads smarter you can convert leads faster shortening sales cycles and closing more business.

The Lead Score lets sales and marketing teams prioritize their work by ranking leads according to their similarities to prior converted leads.

When your Salesforce admin - or Summit’s Salesforce team with a Salesforce Sales Cloud Einstein quickstart - sets up Einstein Lead Scoring you choose to score all leads together or group leads into segments based on field criteria. Einstein builds a separate scoring model for each lead segment. With each lead score, Einstein displays the lead’s field values that have the most significant positive and negative effects on its score.

When you add the Einstein Score field to list views you can hover over a score to display the top factors behind the score and focus on leads with the highest scores for the fastest lead conversion.
