Reading time: 4 minutes

Unfortunately, businesses waste up to 45 minutes speaking to unqualified leads. This reduces your teams’ productivity as they spend more time engaging with people who may not be the best fit for your business, or are not as interested as they seem.

We heard you and know your struggle, which is why we’ve worked round the clock to develop a qualification feature for TimeSync.

We also added more functionality for a better user experience and more qualified meetings — And we are excited to announce that you can now automatically save the answers to the qualifying questions you set on the booking page!

This allows you to not only have more qualified meetings, but it eliminates the guesswork about what your clients’ use cases and pain points are.

This feature is available to all Pro plan users. Here’s more about TimeSync’s qualification feature.

Have more qualified meetings

Having a pre-qualification feature will save you time in engaging with people who are interested in your products and services, or simply meet certain criteria before having a meeting with you. 

Also, you can provide some options for the invitees to choose from as a response. Then, their choice will decide if they are able to book a meeting with you.

This feature aims to help you:

  • Reduce time spent on communicating with unqualified leads
  • Improve customer experience
  • Generate more qualified meetings

Customize your qualification questions

By now, we’ve already established the importance of using the right pre-qualification questions to filter for the right leads. This is important as it can help you achieve your business goals.

Here are some other examples of the types of qualification questions that you can use:

1. BANT basic framework

You can use the budget, authority, need, and timeline (BANT) framework to create your qualification questions.

BANT is a framework designed to determine how qualified a lead is to for your business. Before creating your lead qualification questions, ask yourself the following questions as a guide:

  • B – How much money is the lead willing to spend on your software?
  • A – Can the lead on the call make buying decisions?
  • N – Is my solution the best tool to address the lead’s business needs.
  • T – Which lead needs your solution most urgently

2. Business Function

Perhaps your solution was designed to resolve business problems for those in the marketing department. However, over the course of your business, you have wasted a lot of time on unqualified leads from say, the IT department.

To reduce the time spent on speaking to unqualified leads from the wrong departments, you can include questions that ask them which business function they are from.

3. Country of operation

Sometimes, a lead from another country schedules a call with your sales rep only to find out that your software doesn’t support his or her country of operation. Perhaps it was due to a lack of language options. Perhaps it was due to your software not meeting the requirements of local regulations.

Regardless of the actual reason, having questions that help filter out leads from countries that your solution does not support is important.
