BIZPAY

No matter how good your product or service, or how well-trained and effective your sales people, at some point in the sales cycle the customer is going to raise a price objection.

And how you deal with that objection will determine whether or not you close the sale.

Whilst this is true for most products and services, it is particularly true for high-value B2B sales – where a price negotiation is a standard part of the sales process.

Before, exploring a new and more effective way to deal with this negotiation, it is important to recognise that your customers who raise a price objection are motivated by a variety of reasons, including:

  • They do not see enough value in the product or service you are offering (keep working)
  • The need to drive a hard bargain
  • Fear of missing out … if you don’t ask, you don’t get
  • Genuine affordability / cash flow concerns

Whilst some businesses adopt a non-negotiable pricing policy, the majority will empower their sales people with some level of discretion to close the sale.

Of course, as most sales people look for the path of least resistance, this often means that – if you offer (up to) 10% discount on large sales, over time all sales will trend towards this less 10% price.

Now there’s a better way.

With BizPay you can protect your list price and make your product or service more affordable for even the most cash-flow challenged prospect.

Using the increasingly popular “buy now, pay later” mechanism, BizPay enables you to:

  • Provide your customers with the option of paying any invoice ($2,000 – $200,000) in 4 easy monthly instalments
  • At no cost to them (interest free)

Best of all, with BizPay

  • The online application process for your customers is quick and simple (no detailed financials required)
  • Whilst you get paid in full (less our 4% fee) in 24 hours

IRON CAGE

Sales Intelligence Systems in 2020 represent a ‘holy grail’ for those at the bleeding edge of technological focus in the enterprise software arena, and we have worked hard, at the coalface, for decades to produce this system, philosophy and mentoring, and to digitise it into an accurate and insight driven software offering. While existing sales intelligence software collates data, it still relies on human interpretation of that data to convert insights into training and coaching for sales teams. The problem with this, is that the vast majority of sales managers have never been trained in sales data interpretation and management, so results are sub-optimal. Through our proprietary algorithm, Iron Cage not only provides data-driven insights, it automatically returns daily training to every sales person, based on their individual challenges according to their statistics, and simultaneously gives managers detailed instructions for how to manage these challenges with each team member. This creates an automated sales feedback environment, unlike anything else on the market.

ACMO is committed to helping businesses accomplish more.

By “More” we mean helping businesses understand that by mapping out their workflow processes, companies can streamline and automate repetitive tasks and accomplish more in their day.

Intelligent automation creates workflow productivity. It automated the computer tasks that people have to do manually (data entry, forwarding information, etc) and uses robotic process automation software to learn and then execute these tasks on its own. This artificial intelligence gives back the time and headspace it otherwise costs employees.

We believe that employees deserve to shine and use their time at work to contribute to higher-level creative & strategic thinking, which often doesn’t happen when they are stuck doing manual data entry and wasting hours of their day on these simple repetitive tasks. These boring tasks can lead to dissatisfaction at work, data entry mistakes, and ultimately employee turnover.

ACMO offers a professional IT service that is accessible and friendly to companies who wish to streamline their workflow and create hyper-efficiency through automation. You may be at the beginning of your digital transformation journey, or somewhere along the line. ACMO will meet you wherever you are on your journey and offer an obligation-free consultation on new or existing automation solutions.
