This blog will give you 10 trends that you can look out for to help grow your business throughout the coming year. These trends apply to small and large businesses looking to grow and progress their company. 1. Brexit uncertainty With Brexit happening this year and still no deal, how is it going to affect the economy within the wholesale trade? This uncertainty would impact all companies doing business with the EU and see prices change including shipping costs, tariffs and more. Some business will be searching for new suppliers as a result of Brexit and localise their supply chain within the UK, whereas others will choose to keep suppliers in the EU. 1.

Bath House Testimonial

What does Bath House have to say about SalesPresenter and their experience with Blue Alligator? Last week Corey our account manager and Callan our marketing executive, went to the Lake District. They visited Bath House to see how they were getting on and what impact SalesPresenter has made to their business. Bath House was kind enough to give a testimonial about their experience with Blue Alligator and how SalesPresenter benefits them. We asked a few questions whilst visiting Bath House, below is the responses we got! Problems before Blue Alligator “SalesPresenter has saved us so much time. After a trade fair, for example, we just come back with hundreds of orders, all on paper, all to hand put into Sage. I was here every weekend just imputing orders into Sage because the phones were just so busy during the week. Taking orders over the phone once again onto paper and then having to input them into Sage. Now with an iPad by your desk, somebody rings an order through we put it straight onto Blue Alligator. It’s there on Sage as soon as the uploads done.” How has the support team been? "Reece who was developing the site for us has been second to none, nothing was an issue." Overall how well is SalesPresenter working for you? "SalesPresenter has saved us so much time. After a trade fair, for example, we just come back with hundreds of orders, all on paper, all to hand put them into Sage."

What are the benefits of up-selling and cross-selling? Check out some useful information below on why these types of features are some of the best tools for your reps. Up-selling Customers will look at the relevance of your products and how they can be of benefit. Up-selling offers products like the item they are viewing at a slightly higher price, maybe a different brand or larger size, with more benefits and of a better quality. Customers are given variants and options to enhance their offering which in turn allows reps to increase average order value.  You will retain customer loyalty as you are offering them a better product that may also give them a significantly higher return.

Why Is It Beneficial For Your Reps To Save Time?

Why is it beneficial for your reps to save time? We all know how important it is to optimise your business’s processes, from warehousing and stock management, through to accounting, invoicing etc. Something that has been very apparent in recent years is the need to ensure our sales team are as optimised in their processes as the rest of the workforce. For too long, sales teams have done the job of selling with bare minimum information and relied mainly on their ability to build relationships and muster on through with out-dated stock figures. There are a few areas that we at Blue Alligator have come to understand and can vastly improve a salesman’s performance whilst they are selling. Here’s a couple of our favourites.

As well as some cosmetic tweaks, the release includes a feature which forces a user to perform a download from the cloud within a certain timeframe. The default is 31 days and can be configured between 7 and 120 days under general in the configuration section of the cloud. If the number of days elapses before the user has performed a download, they will be automatically logged out of SalesPresenter forcing them to perform a download. This number of days also determines when a device shows up in amber on the registered devices page on the cloud. A device will show up in red if it hasn’t synchronised for over 121 days. This is a useful option for users in the instance where a rep/agent (who is using their own device) leaves. The rep/agent will be logged out after the time has elapsed. Because their device has been disabled in the cloud, they then won’t be able to download/log in again.
