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 reps 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 customers – This is where your sales reps are very active on the ground.  They trigger the sale in store BUT if the rep is on leave or misses a store, the entire order gets missed.  Additionally because they are so busy taking orders, they have a limited amount of time to visit new customers or new stores and in turn stifle your overall growth
  2. Underservicing customers – This is where the sales rep or internal telesales person is simply phoning clients to prompt orders. There is little or no relationship building, visiting new stores, or gathering competitor insights to drive growth in your sales
