Instructor: Anne Patterson

Level of Complexity: Foundational
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Today’s Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) has an unprecedented selection of software solutions. And cloud-based hosting has virtually exploded the number of options. But with the plethora of alternatives comes the challenge: how to select the solution that best fits your company’s needs? And once selected, how to implement – without bleeding the organization’s budget and bandwidth? And once implemented, how to leverage to move the needle on operational performance? In this workshop, three topic areas will be covered: (1) Software selection: Know what you need: clearly define your must-haves and nice-to-haves BEFORE you start looking for solutions. [A sample needs analysis template will be provided to students.] Where to look? What to look for? Cloud vs server? 2) Implementation: The recipe for success, from team structure and accountabilities to phased implementation options, including remote vs in-person implementations. (3) After Go-Live: Making the software deliver on its promise. How to measure success. How to leverage the tools and resources for continuous improvement.

Value-Added Selling (4th Edition)

Paul Reilly, Tom Reilly

“Value” is about more than just price. Good salespeople understand that and know what differentiates their products from that of competitors. Developments in technology, including price comparison apps and search engines, now provide consumers with more information than ever, making it much harder to value and sell your product. Additionally, millennials, who now comprise the largest population in the workforce, prefer to do things differently than prior generations. This updated fourth edition of Reilly’s classic guide examines the latest trends and technology that have impacted the market and provides expert advice on leveraging current technology to increase sales.

Value-Added Selling, 4th edition offers proven strategies and tactics to help you not only close more sales but improve repeat business without compromising on price. You’ll learn how to anticipate the needs, wants, and concerns of buyers from the very beginning of the sales process. The book shows how to compete more profitably by selling value, not price.
