You could be the most skilled artisan or hardest working craftsman alive, but you still have to develop new business opportunities and sell your work to make a living!
That’s the reason why Aspire’s Jon Gohl – Senior Account Manager – traveled to Northern Kentucky’s Creative Image Landscaping to train the staff on how to improve their Sales Management processes and reporting in Aspire. This is an important step in every deployment and a significant element in landscape business management: business development and marketing.
As a result of the training and set-up work performed by Jon Gohl and the team at Creative Image Landscaping, the company now has standard procedures and processes to:
Manage the sales pipeline from prospect to close with easy-to-use reports.
Manage each sales rep using dashboard “report cards” comparing actual sales to goal.
Provide prospects and customers with real-time estimates and budgets for new projects.
Manage estimating bids using the Aspire “template” feature which incorporates production factors and “kits” (assemblies).
Manage sales and estimating in one place, saving time and improving pricing consistency/margins.
Manage the pipeline for complex signature/custom projects from cradle to grave with all information in one place (The Aspire cloud-based system).
Replace time-intensive spreadsheets with real-time bidding templates, rep scorecards and sales dashboards.
