A well-trained sales force is the life-blood of any company. Without skilled professionals generating sales, your revenue stream would dry up.
So, what is your organization doing to keep your sales team trained, engaged and up-to-date on the latest products and services you sell? This is a huge challenge for many companies. You want your sales force in the field and meeting with prospective clients, yet you want them to remain connected to your business.
So, what does it mean to have a fully connected sales force?
With the current state of mobile and smartphone technology, most employees are just a click or a call away from the office. But there is a big difference between having access to the company intranet and being fully connected. What kind of information does your sales force have access to? Are there multiple systems that they must log in to? How current are the corporate communications that they receive? Do they have access to training materials? These are all necessary components of a fully connected sales force.
Fortunately, there is a way to ensure that your sales force stays connected to all of the resources they need to be successful. I’m talking about TOPYX®, the cloud-based Social Learning Management System (LMS) that provides secure access from any browser-enabled mobile device. Your sales force is likely already familiar with the advantages of social media. The contacts and relationships that are created through venues like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and others provide leads and generate opportunities. And since TOPYX uses a similar social media-type interface, they will feel right at home.
Some of the features that will help your sales force to be fully connected include:
- Providing mobile access to product and service training courses
- Instant access to important company information
- Chat and other social media tools for interfacing with technical support teams
- Single Sign-on (SSO) access to your company training and communication portal
- Features like Calendaring, Forums, Document Library and more
TOPYX was created to help companies better deliver not only their training programs, but all corporate communications. In addition, TOPYX can be customized to deliver information to designated teams and groups. Your sales force will receive updates and information that are vital to them.
If you currently maintain a company intranet and a learning management system, ask yourself why. Also ask whether your sales team makes full use of the training materials administered by your current LMS. Finally, ask this. When your sales team “connects”, what are they connecting to?
TOPYX is the Social LMS solution that ensures your team gets the support they need. And with low fixed rate pricing, support for unlimited users and bandwidth, no fee-based charges for access, TOPYX is the perfect platform for supporting your sales team.
