In the current market companies face even stiffer competition. A product of quality does not guarantee sales. Consumers now have at their fingertips more information about products and services on demand, so organizations now require a robust commercial system that will make a difference at the time of a purchase.

In order to ensure the organization has an optimal commercial system it is important to perform an evaluation from a strategic perspective understanding the market, products or services that are being offered as well as the consumer’s behavior. It is also necessary to analyze the internal processes and those for customer service. 

The work model must strengthen the sales force, promote the benefits of each product, encourage cross-selling and ensure the expected margins per type of product or service.

London Consulting helps its customers with the definition of a strategy and the professionalization of the commercial management while making an impact on the business’ profitability.

The Challenge

In diagnosis and projects it is common to find weaknesses regarding the following:

  • Non-standardized business process, i.e. each vendor takes a different sales process, which is usually based on their experience.

  • Low active monitoring on the sales force, which in turn results in low levels of productivity.

  • Incomplete record of customer information or lack of commercial management, resulting in poor follow-up on potential customers.

  • Weakness in the customer prospecting and prioritization model. The objective markets and the strategies to reach customers are not clearly identified.

  • Weakness in the implementation of customer management and retention strategies (CRM).

  • Cross-selling is not a part of the incentives system and there are no tools or programs to

    incentivize cross-selling with the purpose of increasing the average value of transactions.

  • Lack of field training and verification of use of sales protocol (scripts, handling objections, stages of sale, etc.).

  • A formal evaluation is not done on the sales agents management that will allow them to have continuous information of the opportunities to increase sales. We found very little or no follow-up on daily fulfillment measures that can guarantee the achievement of the month’s objectives (amount of calls made, number of customers visited, compliance with sales closing, etc.).
