What We Do :::
Millions of dollars are spent annually on sales training and sales management. Yet it is very difficult to get an accurate picture of just how that training and management pays off. Companies tend to look at results as an indicator of training success. But this approach fails to take into account why the prospective client doesn't buy.We provide that missing piece of critical data on the customer's shopping experience to improve a company's understanding of why the purchase wasn't made. This information then may be leveraged to make changes to training efforts as well as other operational improvements in areas including customer service and sales. This data enables our clients to ultimately achieve significant business results.
