  • Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) July 26, 2011 - Eindhoven, the Netherlands - A great deal of high-quality expertise is required to sell customer-specific products and services. Usually, only the most experienced employees possess this expertise. If this knowledge is made accessible to all sales personnel, this will have a positive effect on the company's operational management. As Otto van der Tang, Managing Director Sofon, explains, "By offering companies a sales-support system, in which knowledge from the entire company can be stored, that knowledge no longer leaves the organization the moment that experienced employees leave the company. Knowledge is also very easily transferable. New sales personnel are guided through the sales process, in a manner of speaking - which is also why we use the term Guided Selling Software - and can soon make an error-free quotation without the need to have thorough knowledge."

    Safeguarding knowledge, therefore, is crucial to the continuity of a company. As Van der Tang says, "Sales personnel can use the stored knowledge of colleagues and generate quotations using a question-and-answer method. Companies make accurate quotations many times faster with Guided Selling than with their old working methods. In this way, companies gain an advantage over their competition. A quicker quotation cycle time often translates into higher scoring probabilities."

    But what makes Sofon the world's most intelligent software? "Unlike many of our (custom) competitors, Sofon delivers standard software", says Van der Tang. "Standard, here, means: suitable to any company, without the need for time-consuming, costly and inflexible customizations. Sofon, therefore, can also be quickly implemented and maintained by the sales personnel themselves, without the time-consuming and costly help of IT or external consultants."
