Sales Partnerships provides turnkey outsourced sales solutions that generate accelerated revenue for the world’s leading brands. The company was honored this year for its ability to work closely with a leading financial services company to mobilize 70 field agents on brand messaging and targeting in less than 60 days. The program grew to more than 300 field agents in more than 100 U.S. markets within 10 months. The team was able to generate more than $1 billion in new client revenue. No similar program has ever successfully been launched by another sales outsourcing company in American history.

Sales Partnerships Technology Solutions

Sales Partnerships build proprietary business intelligence and mapping tools to heat map and plan sales territories to be more effective. The technology team is then able to extrapolate data from the field work in real team to adjust territories to maximize the return on investment for clients. In addition to maximizing revenue, our field agents are able to use our software solution to collect customer feedback in real-time. Working hand-in-hand with the client, we can then use this data to adjust training, targeting, and refining of the brand message to constantly keep increasing the return on investment. These solutions are flexible to clients needs and are created with business goals in mind.
