Why Guided Selling increases the performance of your sales teams and your dealers
The idea behind the job of a sales representative is simple: help your customer find the best solution that fits their needs. However this task is a lot harder in a B2B environment in which companies are often struggling to explain complex products. This is where guided selling comes into play, a powerful strategy to regain control over your solution offering.

Overcome B2B Buyer Frustrations with HiveCPQ
Keep your customers happy. That is up to this day the main thing account managers focus on. That is why, after its massive success, a lot of B2B companies have followed the B2C trend of eCommerce. Digital tools have proven to be highly effective, in case companies know how to implement them correctly.
