Woohoo! Today, APS Helped You Shorten Your Sales Cycle!

Jul 18, 2017 4:00:00 AM

Does it seem like your sales cycle has been lengthening?

Right now, we’re all busier and more stressed than we’ve ever been before. When you logically consider that the people you sell to are as busy as you, it makes sense that you didn’t hear from a previously excited opportunity for over a month. Logical thinking doesn’t make all that tiresome follow-up any better though. 

If your sales cycle takes longer these days because opportunities drop out of communication for weeks or months at a time, you’re probably not taking advantage (yet) of one of the top selling techniques of all time. Today, APS is here to help you change that.   

The Secret to Faster Cycles: Immediate Selling

This scenario may sound familiar: A sales meeting is going great and the client wants to know how many widgets they can order right now. You go back to the office to check, send the client a quick confirmation email, and then… you don’t hear anything back for a week. Two weeks. A month.

What happened?

In short: you didn’t complete the sale immediately. Your need to check inventory slowed the whole process.

But don’t beat yourself up about it; it’s not your fault. The problem occurred because we’re all so busy these days. When you left your client’s office, they got lost in work and forgot all about you.

You could have avoided this if you had completed the sale right then at the meeting, immediately, when you had your client’s full attention.

Overcoming the Obstacles to Immediate Sales

Prior to today, your company may have found it impossible to answer up-to-date inventory questions or process Sage 100-integrated card payments on the road. Without those capabilities you couldn’t complete an immediate sale.

Today, you can.  

That’s because American Payment Solutions and ScanForce Mobile Sales just partnered up.ScanForce_Logo_320x50.png
