Excellence in Inside Sales
Excellence in Inside Sales (EIS) is a results-oriented program that gives your inside sales team the skills and confidence to convert prospects into customers. Equipped with EIS strategies and methodologies, Inside Sales professionals will increase their sales, grow margins, build strong customer relationships, and demonstrate their organization’s commitment to excellence in every customer contact.
The contribution of Inside Sales should not be limited to cold calling and taking phone orders. Today’s hyper-competitive business environment requires a higher level of efficiency and function across the entire sales organization. Inside Sales professionals need to be prepared to solve problems, identify sales opportunities, and then seize those opportunities in every customer or prospect contact.
EIS is a inside sales training program that can be delivered as a component of other sales training or as a stand-alone program. Combining the power of experiential learning and visual models, EIS ensures that participants will immediately apply what they learn.
EIS Program Overview
