July 23, 2009

Technology is offering pretty convincing answers to some of the challenges for today’s salespeople. In the first of two articles, Dave Stein explains why. New and evolving technology has an important role to play in enhancing sales performance in two particular ways. First of all, it can be very effective in enabling sales learning, which I firmly believe should not be seen as a one-off event, but more as an ongoing process that never stops. In terms of day-to-day selling, meanwhile, technology can certainly help salespeople do their jobs both more effectively and more efficiently, whether it’s used before sales meetings, for phone calls, or when they’re planning a sales…
