Sandler-trained customer service people...

Are effective communicators in person, on the telephone and by email
Can effectively recommend additional products and services that benefit the customer and add to your top-line revenue and customer retention
Customer service people have to know how to analyze situations without getting swept up by emotions – theirs or the prospect’s.
They also have to know how to act appropriately and initiate the actions required to effectively and efficiently deal with difficulties, address customer needs and solve problems with best-fit solutions.
They have to be able to respond to customer requests using clear and concise language.
Dealing with customers who are confused, frustrated or upset in emotionally charged situations doesn’t come easy for most people – very few, in fact. It takes training and practice to empower your people to act calmly and effectively in those situations.
In our clients' own words
"One of the challenges Employment Solutions faced pre-Sandler was an inefficient sales process, not only chasing unqualified leads, but chasing people we've submitted proposals to and ending up in voicemail jail. We were spinning our wheels making the sales cycle way longer than it needed to be. Since working with Sandler, we've been able to make our sales process much more efficient. We've shortened the sales cycle, and we now qualify our leads much better."

SALES CONVERSATIONS CAN HAPPEN IN ANY DEPARTMENT.
Don't overlook the selling potential of your team.
Ever overheard a team member's conversation with a client and cringed? Maybe they didn't ask the right questions. Perhaps they didn't upsell a happy client with deep pockets. You may have team members who are reluctant to go outside their comfort zone because it's "not their job."
You already know that losing a customer is expensive. How confident are you that your team will not only retain customers, but identify and pursue sales conversations during their day-to-day tasks?
Your support teams have a unique opportunity to build relationship with prospects and existing clients. We can help you make sure that your organization takes advantage of that opportunity.
With our specific strategies and processes, your team can defuse tense conversations, address client needs, and solve problems with best-fit solutions without in any way "manipulating" the customer.
