[M] How to add a metric?

Metrics are the quantifiable measures of value that your solution can provide. Picture your customer in the future, live with your solution. What KPIs are they using to measure the impact it has had within their organization? It is likely that some of these KPIs can form your Metrics.

Within mOS, you will be able to add various metrics to your Opportunities to help you qualify your deals. This help file will show you all the steps to achieve this.

📈 Quick Metrics Recap

Here at MEDDICC™, we have three different types of Metrics that we will use as part of the MEDDPICC Sales Methodology:

  • M1s: business outcomes you have delivered for your existing customers.
  • M2s: metrics you have personalized specifically to your customer
  • M3s: validated M2 after the solution has gone live. These can be used to go back into your M1 repository
