Once upon a time, Revenue Operations (RevOps) was an unfamiliar concept for many organizations. Back then, leaders found themselves focused on sales, marketing, and CX as different parts of their go-to-market machine. Not only was their Salesforce org a mess, but due to the lack of collaboration between these teams, there was often a breakdown in communication– and worse, a struggle to identify where revenue was coming from. 

This is where RevOps came into the picture. By integrating their GTM teams, organization’s began to  easily identify and build upon new revenue opportunities. Today, 48% of companies now have a RevOps function, up 15% from last year. And Gartner research suggests that 75% of the highest growth companies will deploy a RevOps model by 2025. 

As the role of RevOps continues to grow and become a critical part of your organization’s GTM teams, it’s important to keep your pulse on the industry. From reading articles, keeping up with annual predictions, and following industry influencers, there’s a multitude of ways to do this effectively. 

But to make your life easier, we’re covering the ultimate list of 2024 RevOps Salesforce statistics to cut the research time and deliver you facts you want to know. Enjoy!

Making Data-Driven Decisions and Keeping Data Secure Are Still Top Challenges

RevOps teams are managing a high velocity of change within Salesforce

For your RevOps model to be successful, you’re going to need the right tools to get full visibility into your Salesforce org. Sonar’s 2022 Ops Outlook Survey shows there’s a desperate need in this department as many RevOps leaders are stuck dedicating long hours to manual work and often making big changes blindly.

  • 36.5% of respondents said they scope dependencies in their CRM manually, object by object. (Sonar)
  • 30.8% of respondents said they do it by memory. That means 67.3% don’t have an efficient, confident way to make changes in their org. (Sonar)

Having your team do manual work vs strategic projects should always be avoided. When overwhelmed by a lot of little projects, Admins can quickly look towards shortcuts to catch up, which can lead to errors or more tech debt within your organization

  • 9.5% of respondents find themselves fixing something in their CRM daily. (Sonar)
  • 20% of respondents say they fix things 2-4 times a week. (Sonar)

In short, nearly a third of respondents are fixing something in their CRM multiple times a week.

  • SF admins (56%) & Marketing ops (55%) feel most satisfied with comp, Business ops (57%) feels least satisfied. (WizOps)
  • Leadership feels most satisfied while entry level roles are least satisfied.(WizOps)

  • Most Ops employees leave due to a poor work environment (27.67%) or new career challenges (24.31%). 
  • Only 12% of Ops professionals leave a role due to compensation alone. 
  • Downsizing was the primary cause for job change in people over 40, accounting for 25% of 40-49 compared to the overall average of 12%. 
  • Career progression and work environment outranked compensation across every age range.
