We make your customers happier.
We help retail building products dealers convert more shoppers into customers. We've built easy to use cloud based sales management software designed specifically to help retail businesses provide a better customer experience. We focus only on what helps businesses turn more prospective customers into paying customers by making the most of every interaction. In addition to bringing new technologies to market, our team has a great deal of experience across a number of industries, including both manufacturing and distribution in addition to retail.
We're a different kind of software company. We sell lead generation and lead management systems tailored for retail sales.
We started our business selling high quality leads. Almost everyone we spoke with had neither a process nor a platform to manage their leads well. Why does this matter? Close rate is 57% lead quality 43% lead management - meaning your sales process determines whether or not the sale closes 43% of the time.
In short, garbage in = garbage out. We don't even discuss leadgen with customers who don't have lead management of some sort.
The sales process needs to be solid and the right systems need to be in place to succeed. A lot of CRM (customer relationship management) systems claim they’re built for retail or business to consumer sales. Oddly, most of them are frustrating to use in a retail showroom setting. Because you only get out of a system what you put in, most people don’t even bother using them.
Modern consumers - largely made up of milennials, who represent 34% of home buyers - are educated and not only expect quality service, they demand it. If they don't get it, they simply move on to the next vendor. When you’ve got customers who expect answers, you don’t need to be focused on how to properly classify them and find them in your CRM system. You need to be managing your interactions effectively to get them the answers they need so you can sell them the right product for their needs.
Improving the customer buying experience will deliver a greater ROI than more leads ever could.
Our team has experience in all three key points of the supply chain: manufacturing, distribution, and retail. Most importantly, we have experience selling to modern consumers.
