The number of sales that are produced each day are about 60% less than the contacts each sales representative have with a potential customer via phone or email.

…6 OUT OF 10 POTENTIAL SALES ARE MISSED

  • Double daily sales.

  • Strengthen customer satisfaction and draw more returning customers.

  • Goals:

  • Identify the cause of daily missed sales.

  • Improve the process starting from the sales person initial contact with the customer through the time an order is actually placed in database.

ANALYZE PHASE: Database

What’s missing?: basically all the information is available. Even though they say there is lack of information. Therefore, the real issue is lack of training. It is there but they don’t “see” it…

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • ISSUES THAT COMPANY SHOULD ADDRESS IN NEAR FUTURE
