If enterprise software companies have their way artificial intelligence will ultimately become the coach for your sales people.
Pegasystems on Tuesday launched Pega Sales Coach, an AI tool within Pega Sales Automation, that aims to help managers train sales people and predict their success.
Think of Pega Sales Coach as a fitness trainer for sales. Pegasystems' AI offers personalized coaching in real-time to help managers prod their sales army to hit quotas.
Pega Sales Coach joins other efforts to make sales people better at things like pricing and discounting and providing insights to close deals. Pegasystems' goal is to put some science behind the art of sales to go behind basic actions to focus on why a deal happens (or doesn't) and how to improve.

- Creates dashboards to track performance, coaching plans and quotas.
