Sales & Marketing
We currently operate nationwide sales & merchandising operations on behalf of several clients on an outsourced basis. Outlets are serviced regularly and we report on all aspects of the call. We fully manage these operations and work with the companies to a defined set of objectives and targets.
The market is more uncertain than ever before. More and more companies are outsourcing their sales and merchandising operations in response to market trends. Areas such as centralised distribution centralised buying and in some case, centralised decision making at head offices which may be abroad, are all having an impact on operations. The big advantage for you in this enviroment with contracted operations is their flexibility.
These operations can be part-time or full-time, they can cover large or small geographic territories and are as professional as having your own team. The operations can be accountable directly to you or be fully managed on your behalf. You decide what the operational structure and budgets are and Contract people will operate to these Key Result Areas. Our reports can provide top level overview or as much detail as you require.
Our costs are reflected in an open spreadsheet system for transparency and control. The client decides how much management, administrative support and overhead cost the operation will require to achieve its objectives. These costs are examined each month when the budget is presented to the client for approval. Another big advantage of open spreadsheet is that as the operation grows or contracts the client gains the benefit of economies of scale. Where there is a reduction in operations the client can examine each cost base separately and identify savings.
