Acuity® for Strategic Sales

Acuity® for Strategic Sales Bloojam

Research shows that in a strategic sales environment the sales process has become increasingly complex;

  • customers are more informed about your products and services before they contact you
  • there are multiple stakeholders and decision-makers within the client organisation, each with their own needs and priorities
  • as the cost of the solution increases, buyers become more cautious so that it becomes more critical to show the solution’s value
  • as a result the sales process often takes months

No surprise then that in this new sales landscape there is a clear need for salespeople to adapt their selling practices. Customers want your salespeople to act as trusted advisors who can add insight and value, not just a transactional seller.
