Data visualization for sales use cases can be a tough nut to crack for some web developers, especially if the sales processes their apps are built around aren't well-defined. The last decade and a half of technological development has given businesses at all levels unprecedented access to sales tools that suit a broad range of scenarios, workflows, and pipelines. The growth of the e-commerce economy has only further accelerated this transition.

This has given web developers a chance to introduce disruptive, flexible sales products and services that accommodate more unconventional styles of selling. These new offerings are no longer constrained to only enterprise-level projects, and are increasingly also being used across a broader spectrum of business entities including start-ups, entrepreneurs, and small to mid-size organizations. Indeed, for a considerable portion of these business entities, these sales tools might be their first explorations into establishing anything resembling a sales workflow at all.

So what part do charts, graphs, diagrams and infographics play in these sales scenarios? And how can web developers use the power of ZingChart's interactive JavaScript charts to maximize the value of their users' sales data? Charts are one of the quickest ways to visually summarize and communicate data insights regardless of the size of the dataset in question. They're invaluable visual representations that can help in guiding business and sales development.

Given the variety of sales use cases that different business entities might need, it's important to use a JavaScript charting library that can accommodate many different chart types. ZingChart has more than 35 built-in chart types that can visualize everything from the well-known (bar charts, line charts, pie charts, etc) to the more complex (network diagrams, funnel charts, choropleth maps, etc). This means that regardless of the sales scenario or business entity they're building for, ZingChart is the only charting tool most web developers will need to get the job done.

By making charts interactive, developers can also begin to control the way their users access their sales information to maximize its impact. Using ZingChart's built-in features like drilldown, tooltips, value boxes, custom scales, mixed charts, and a JavaScript API (to name a few), web developers can control the information density in the charts they include in their apps and websites.

When combined into configurations like dashboards and widgets, these interactive, responsive charts can become the backbone of the sales products and services that modern web developers are building. Whether these tools are bespoke solutions for internal teams, or OEM solutions that are going to be resold to an end customer, ZingChart can help web developers not only visualize, but maximize the insights in their users' sales data.
