Instead of general standard solutions, regional and individual methods are needed. We are pleased that the existing customers Nespresso and Hertz, but also new customers such as FLD trust on our expertise in this area and we could maximize their success through our intelligent and individual sales force solutions!”
STEIN relies on a comprehensive analysis of distribution channels, the already established concepts as well as the available number of sales to develop flexible sales force concepts for the optimal recovery of the existing sales potential and establish them in the practical usage.
