Outsourced sales and contract sales leader, Sales Partnerships Inc (SPI), was presented with 8 Gold (“Best in Class”) Stevie Awards at the 13th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service on February 22nd, 2019. The Stevies awarded SPI as the top National Sales Organization in the United States and as the top Sales Outsourcing Provider in the US as well. SPI also was recognized as fielding the top teams in industrial and financial services sales work as well as for delivering the top sales recruiting team, innovation in sales technology in territory management for field sales, and a win for SPI’s Chief Sales Officer as the top senior sales executive in America (the highest individual award in sales).
The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development, and sales professionals. Some of the largest companies in the world from locations in more than 45 countries were judged for accomplishments throughout 2018 with the groups with the highest scores receiving the top award in their respective categories. Thousands of nominations were judged in specialized categories this year, the most ever submitted for consideration. The award winners were announced February 22nd, 2019 at an awards gala at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Video of the award ceremony can be found via the Stevies main site and on the Stevie YouTube channel.
This year’s awards included global leaders SAP, Cisco, IBM, Dell, Comcast, Bank of America, Intuit and more. SPI’s Chief Sales Officer Fred Kessler, “Even though this year’s competition was the largest and most fierce in the history of these awards, we more than held our own. Sales Outsourcing as an industry eclipsed more than $300B in revenue in the US and Europe in 2018 – being recognized as the top organization in contract sales and sales outsourcing overall is an amazing honor.”
“Despite the massive revenue generated, many companies are still unaware that they can hire a contract sales organization to represent them in the market,” said Kessler. “We recruit the teams, deploy all the systems necessary to ensure success (often using proprietary SPI award winning systems), manage the teams, and close the deals under the clients’ brand. As far as the customers are concerned, it was our client end to end – SPI’s brand is invisible in the sale. All the while, we report back all the results back to client and hold quotas just like their internal teams. Our value story revolves around delivering better ROIs than other internal or external options, speed to market – often having teams live doing field sales in weeks rather than months, and in delivering brand protection that has become expected from our Fortune 500 clientele.”
The 2018 Stevie Awards marks the 10th consecutive
year Sales Partnerships has earned top honors in sales. To see the complete
