SMART Capability Building Workshop 40: Salesforce Productivity

2016 Nov 07, Monday

2016 Nov 07, Monday

SMART Centre, Level 2, PSDC Building

SMEs in Penang are equipped with robust supply chain with world class capabilities across various supporting industry such as precision engineering, tools & dies making, contract manufacturers of electronic components, machinery and equipments, automation and many more. While SMEs have their own area of expertise in producing quality products, many still face challenges to sell their products, either via their own direct salesforce or a resale distribution network.  

The workshop will be divided into 2 areas of briefing.  The first will be focusing on the salespersons selling process: targeting the right customers, planning the sales call, executing required steps during the sales call, follow up to the sales call. Salesperson recordkeeping and the role of the Sales Manager will also be addressed.

While the second part of the briefing will be on locating, evaluating, launching then developing resellers in a distribution network.  Helping to ensure that those selected will properly represent your product, and increase the likelihood that you will succeed together.

 Join us in this insightful workshop which will:

  • Provide the processes and tools to achieve salesforce success, whether through a direct salesforce, a resale network, or a combination of both. 
  • Review tools and checklists that are practical and can be implemented quickly.
