There is no surprise when I say the primary responsibility of your sales department is to convert the right type of leads into paying customers.
RevOps plays a vital role in streamlining the sales process and enhancing collaboration between sales and other departments, especially marketing to ensure the right deals are closed profitably.

RevOps helps develop sales enablement resources, such as playbooks, case studies, and product demos, that can be easily accessed and utilized by the sales team in a centralized content depository like HubSpot CRM sales documents.
