How we’ve helped distributors and manufacturers like you

In the midst of the COVID pandemic, we helped a distributor analyze its sales force’s productivity and where growth was coming from so they could better position for 2021. The distributor transformed its team, moving to hybrid and specialized roles and revamping incentives to maintain momentum in the new year.

We helped a field sales-driven national distributor to move from an outside-sales-driven business to inside sales, going from a one-to-one outside-to-inside ratio to one-to-five. The shift took friction out of the purchasing process for the customer and cost out for the distributor.
