Is the Sales Rep dilemma getting the better of you?

The number one statement we hear from our customers is “I am not sure if my sales team are doing enough” followed closely by “how do I know if they are doing their job”
… Sound familiar?

Introducing Elm’s “Sales a as a Service”

At Elm we understand that a well-run sales team requires strong sales management, exceptional internal sales and customer support and passionate sales representative on the ground. 

We also know that many food and beverage business don’t have the budget to allow for the “perfect” team and tend to adopt one of two worlds: 

  1. Overservicing your client – This is where your sales rep is very active on the ground.  They trigger the sale in store however if your sales rep is on leave or misses the store they miss the order and are limited in time to visit new customer opportunities and get stuck in a rut 
  2. Underservicing your client – This is where an internal person phones for the order however it limits the range in store, the ability to build relationships with new stores and understanding the competitor
