Gartner evaluated 14 sales force automation (SFA) vendors based on 12 core sales execution capabilities and how they apply to three specific use cases. These include capabilities such as guided selling, activity management, opportunity management, forecasting management, and platform and integration.

In the report, Gartner explains: "Gartner considers SFA to be a foundational technology that should be implemented to automate an organization's core sales processes while also improving the seller's ability to engage with buyers via customer interaction touchpoints."
