With proper execution of the QBR you will consistently gain share of wallet within your customers' accounts. For a full class description, please visit www.strategydevelopment.com/mpsadvanced
"Today, MPS is sold into most companies with more than 10 devices and many of those prospects have had some form of MPS presented to them,” stated Callinan. “So, it is important to be able to differentiate your offering and provide a compelling reason for a prospect to engage your company for an assessment."
The MPS Sales Workshop will arm your sales professionals with the tools they need to be successful in MPS and be successful at taking customers from your competitors. Once you start to grow your portfolio of mid-sized MPS customers, the MPS Advanced Sales class will demonstrate specifically how to continue to gain share of wallet within your customers' accounts.
“This class was GREAT!! It showed such a different approach to Managed Print Services that should provide helpful to get our program off the ground and make it successful,” said Wade Arntson from Imaging Path.
