Sharing opportunities between teams or departments
Let’s look at the example of a bank that offers different products (Home Loan, Personal Loan, etc.). The Home Loans team contacts John, a lead, and sets up an appointment with him. After speaking to him, the Home Loans team gets a new personal loan requirement from John. Here, the Home Loans team can share John’s details with the Personal Loans team.
