Comments from Sid Bala President and Founder

PSCG has helped alligatortek navigate large, complex sales cycles with custom solutions.

  • One key aspect is defining our internal sales process and ensuring that we have all the required information prior to proceeding – allowing our team to be in control rather than letting prospects be in control.
  • Our CRM did not have clean data. That prevented us from focusing on the right deals – the deals worth pursuing.
  • It has been vital to have real-time coaching for our sales team (BDMs) at all stages of sales cycle to brainstorm ideas, role-play and help define a strategy.
  • PSCG has provided us continual input and advice on how to generate more leads using sales associates and cold email prospecting processes.
  • PSCG has helped us sell on value rather than price and become confident about exploring for return on investment and having clients embrace our process and see it as a differentiator.
  • We close bigger details with greater possibility now.

PSCG has helped us work with enterprise organizations of approximately $1B in annual revenue. We have been engaging with the C-Suite personnel to sell complex custom solutions.

  • Worked with us to help move the needle with Microsoft to develop a managed partnership which will generate leads in 2015
  • Process helped opened door to billion dollar kitchen products manufacturer at CIO level
  • Working with the team to develop surgical strike questions that uncover pain and build value for custom solutions
  • Ensuring that we are not seen as a commodity
  • Strategies to further penetrate existing enterprise accounts as well as offensive and defensive strategies to protect existing business
