CRM (Customer Relationship Management) technology is standard fare for most B2B enterprises.
When used properly, CRM can enhance your company's interactions with customers and prospects. If you don't currently use CRM, there's no better time than the present to get started. Companies that already use a CRM solution need to analyze their processes to make sure it is being used to its full potential.

How to Evaluate Sales Staff
Periodic staff assessment is essential for companies that sell in this industry. Businesses that achieve significant market share hire top-end producers and routinely evaluate them against performance goals and benchmarks.

Training, coaching and sales incentives can be useful for improving performance and revenues. In some instances, it may be appropriate to team underperforming sales reps with reps that have more experience selling to moisture control businesses.
