Definition of Win Rate

A metric that measures the percentage of deals that a company wins when competing against other companies. It is calculated by dividing the number of won deals by the total number of deals that were competed with other companies. For example, if a company wins 5 deals out of 10 that were competitive, then their win rate would be 50%. A high win rate indicates that a company is effective at closing deals, while a low win rate suggests the company may need to improve their sales process or their product offering.

Example: The company had a high win rate when competing on mid-market and enterprise deals.

Variations: close rate, conversion rate
