This is what our customers say about us …
“It boosted our performance.”
“Double Loop Key Account Management helped a lot to enhance our key account strategies and the customer centricity of our internal organization. It really boosted our performance on all KAM success factors and led to a double digit increase of our net sales and profits.
I particularly liked the negotiation training where the content was tailored to our specific needs, adapting practice cases to our reality, based on scenarios at our customers. In addition, the training includes how to address and match different personality types the customers’ negotiators have, which was supported by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®). As a result, we could improve our preparation and execution of our negotiations, leading to significant price increases as well as new business being captured.”

DIGITAL SALES & MARKETING ACADEMY
for a US-based global leader in halogen-free fire retardant additives and thermal management solutionss
When COVID disrupted their global sales training & development program, they didn’t want to stop their efforts of creating a world class Sales and Marketing organization.
Based on their experience with Double Loop classroom sales trainings, they therefore decided to engage us to create a Digital Sales and Marketing Academy to revise and improve selling skills, completely independent from time and location.
The Digital Sales & Marketing Platform was developed and went live in October 2021.
Since then, every quarter a new set of interactive digital training courses is added like Basic Negotiation Skills (incl. Active Listening, Asking Questions, BATNA, Harvard Concept Principles, and Closing the Deal), Pricing & Profit, The Purchasers’ Perspective, Value Selling, Preparing Negotiations, Remote & Hybrid Selling, Negotiation Psychology, and Succeeding in Tough Negotiations.
The digital academy contains features like a browser-based learning portal, interactions, videos, tests and quizzes, mobile learning for iOS and Android, micro learning, gamification, certificates and rewards, and a success reporting with content reports, people reports and quiz reports.
Different skill levels have been defined, so that salespeople can qualify from a probational firefighter to a fire chief within 2 years.
The digital courses are very well appreciated by the sales leaders and the sales teams in all regions: 80% of the sales team enjoy the courses and the value provided, as confirmed by a quote from the feedback from one participant:
“The courses are so captivating that you would like to run one after the other …. ”
