Empowering your Sales force to increase revenue!

sales meeting

Sales and Marketing has transformed. Prospects have taken control of the purchasing process, venturing further down the sales funnel without ever speaking to a sales representative. They go online to create and validate their vendor shortlist—typically without assistance. Social media and eCommerce has created a change in the market and for this we seriously believe, that it is high time business owners, started re-evaluating the tools their sales team work with, that’s if you have not done so by now.

You need to empower your sales force with tools to work with and also provide  marketing structure to support their activities.  This is to avoid wasting resources in going around knocking on doors while businesses are flying over their heads. Ar them with current tools that speak the language of the day, meeting customers where they are and want to be served. Upgrade and maintain the old strategies that still works and discard the snags. Ensure to bridge the gap between them by fusing people, process and technology together.

One of the major tools we suggest you get is a CRM for Sales force automation, & Marketing automation and Call/Contact center automation ( Complaints management & telemarketing).

The benefits of a CRM can never be over emphasized as you may miss growth opportunities and lose revenue just because you’re not keeping tabs and maximizing your business relationships kept by your employees, no mater the size of your business.

Imagine misplacing customer contact information, only to learn that your delay pushed your client into the arms of a competitor. Or, picture your top two salespeople pursuing the same prospect, resulting in an annoyed potential customer and some unfriendly, in-house competition. Imagine missing a mention of a need on social media because you do not have a CRM monitoring that space. Without a centralized program where your people can log and track customer interactions, your business falls behind schedule and out of touch.

In a connected world, delivering a great customer experience is more essential than ever to differentiating your business, building loyalty, and maintaining your reputation. Win customers and keep them happy with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Sales, which can help smaller businesses maximize opportunities, boost mobile productivity, and gain greater business insight.

Entrepreneurship, Microsoft Modern Business Solutions, Small Business, Training , Development and Empowerment

The entrepreneur and ICT

MSME Smart Business Solutions from Scimitar Global Services Limited.jpg

“Entrepreneurship has traditionally been defined as the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which typically begins as a small business, such as a start up company , offering a product, process or service for sale or hire. The people who create these businesses are called entrepreneurs. It has been defined as the “capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit. While definitions of entrepreneurship typically focus on the launching and running of businesses, due to the high risk involved in launching a start-up, a significant proportion of businesses have to close, due to “lack of funding, bad business decisions, an economic crisis – or a combination of all of these or due to lack of market demand. In the 2000s, the definition of “entrepreneurship” expanded to explain how and why some individuals (or teams) identify opportunities, evaluate them as viable and then decide to exploit them, whereas others do not and, in turn, how entrepreneurs use these opportunities to develop new products or services, launch new firms or even new industries and create wealth. Recent advances stress the fundamentally uncertain nature of the entrepreneurial process, because although opportunities exist their existence cannot be discovered or identified prior to their actualization into profits. What appears as a real opportunity ex ante might actually be a non-opportunity or one that cannot be actualized by entrepreneurs lacking the necessary business skills, financial or social capital.”… ( credit to Wikipedia)

One thing i want to add here is the part of the entrepreneur and ICT. Entrepreneurs are recognized as important drivers of economic and social progress, and rapidly growing entrepreneurial enterprises are viewed as important sources of innovation, employment and growth. That innovation today is definitely tied to technology.

As entrepreneurs and business owners we must continue bridge the gaps and reduce the challenges within our business environment with technology available to us today.  I really like the way Fate Foundation put it on their blog : ”  From the fish seller downtown at the market putting calls through to her suppliers, notifying them of her depleting stock; to the shoe-maker at the corner of a street calling customers to inform them of their ready-to-pick-up shoes; to the dressmaker who uses messaging apps and social media platforms to display and sell her products; and the working professional who orders lunch from online food delivery companies, technology with the added benefit of the internet and various information & communication technology tools is gradually becoming an integral  part of the Nigerian business environment and our lives.”

The increase in mobile phone access and the introduction of smartphones have also increased access to the internet on the go. Just a few years ago, you had to visit an internet cafe to gain access to the internet. Today, it is not uncommon to see people standing on the street or sitting in a waiting room buried in their phones either responding to emails, visiting social networking sites or getting official work done from their different communication gadgets.” …(credit to Fate Foundation :How ICT Is Influencing the Rise of Entrepreneurship in Nigeria)

I just couldn’t think of a better way to put better. So i will leave it there and thus continue to point us entrepreneurs to the dangling-right-before-our-noses low hanging fruits, like your phone!  Yes that your  Smart phone!  That’s a mobile  advertising tool and not for selfies and chats alone. It is very important that we understand the need to use what we have to market our brand.  Funds for marketing as a small and medium enterprise is hard to come by now especially in this recession.  Have you tried to get a loan, grant or other investment support , it can be likened to one going to meet a native doctor when his demand will be an eagle’s egg, the teeth of an ant and the tooth of a life lion.  Not until now that Lagos State Government through its LSETF is giving out loans at single digits to entrepreneurs. The first ! And i hope other states will do same.  Nigeria Association of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises NASME Lagos is also helping entrepreneurs  who are members like me to process the LSETF grants. So contact NASME here +234 813 833 3998. Remember to say you got this information from Scimitar Global Services Limited( SGSL). We are a member of the Faculty.

So we need to look inwards and see some other tools  and services within reach like our GSM phones and Internet data,  laptops, tablets, social media (Facebook, Twitter,  Instagram and  LinkedIn) to market our businesses.

Nasme TPM tech options slide.jpg

We need to reduce our Social media activities around the government, President Buhari this and that, EFCC this and That.  corruption here, recovered loot there and channel more efforts to pushing our brands with these tools. I am not saying they are not important or worthy causes but i think the time spent on that may be better spent on pushing your products and services like the big brands out there. They are on social media too pushing even with all the money they have.

We also need to understand the importance of  Four “P”s of marketing as it applies to  smallRewrite-the-Ps-of-marketing and medium Enterprises and the activities around the “P”s required to push a brand. As an Entrepreneur and Business Owner you MUST understand the four P’s of Marketing  and it has nothing to do with running around begging the customers with your product in hand!  You have to create the right Product , Promote it at the right Price through the right channels(Place).

These are the 4 P’s of Marketing.  We finished the session with a charge. See the screen shot.

Microsoft Modern Business Solutions, Small Business

Basic Services An Entrepreneur needs for His/Her Business!

Office business

Are you:

  • a Start up business in Nigeria with no online presence and registered business name?
  • An existing Small & Medium and Enterprise Business (Professional services etc.) still using free email service and cracked office applications.
  • a Mid-market Business (Micro-finance Banks, Insurance, Pensions, retail, Securities, travels, fashion, big shops, etc.)

You need a budget friendly bundled business application that includes some or all the following :

  1. A business name registration with CAC (sole proprietorship, Limited liability company) within 4 weeks
  2. Your Website ( domain registration and email hosting: www.yourcompany.com )
  3. Business class email : yourname@yourcompany.com
  4. Original Microsoft office application (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One note, etc)Smart business on devices.jpg
  5. Collaboration and file sharing from anywhere, any device anytime
  6. One Terabyte of 99.9% money backed secure Cloud Storage for all your documents, pictures etc.
  7. Social Media Engagement
  8. Calendar Management
  9. Contact center ( Optional)
  10. Customer Relationship Management (optional)
  11. IT Management (Required but also optional)

 

We understand that small, medium and even mid-market businesses don’t always have the luxury of a massive budget focused solely on technology like  the  bigger Enterprises. They are  focused on the perceived more important technologies for their core business and processes and manually trying to run the business profitably and meeting all the numerous tidbits that require attention.

The truth is that manually managing businesses is actually more expensive and cumbersome because your business is lacking in some key areas somehow, if you don’t have any of the above listed tools. That is why we are encouraging you to sign up for our modern business solution for your business.

These are smart business tools that are tailored to meet the demands of small and medium businesses, giving them the leverage to use same technology big enterprises are using with same results but at very low cost compared to the latter.

RW6FEn.png

Scimitar Global Services Limited in partnership with Microsoft is bringing to your doorsteps an all in one suite which is a combination of both Office 365, CRM and ERP for a synergized business ecosystem. Our team can show you how easy it is to simplify your business processes when you can go from quote to cash without switching applications. Set up customers or vendors, create quotes, process orders, and submit invoices without leaving your inbox.

Growing businesses often outgrow their basic accounting software that are unable to keep up with increased inventory and transactions, lack integration with other line-of-business systems, and have reporting limitations. Customers using legacy ERP systems feel the pain around scalability and mobility.

Take a minute to identify if your financial system has what it takes to make the most of new opportunities.

Here are signs that your current financial solutions won’t be ready to handle additional growth.

  • Reporting is complicated and provides insufficient information
  • Duplicate data entry into multiple systems is a daily routine
  • Accounting occurs in Excel, not your financial system
  • Systems are disconnected and information is siloed
  • Lack of secure workflows and audit trails increase risk

A new solution doesn’t mean hours of training or disruption of key processes. By using familiar Office tools your people already know, everyone gets up to speed quickly and without extensive training. Applications like Outlook, Word, and Excel provide the comprehensive and reassuring experience that gives employees confidence. Dynamics 365 for Financials lets you handle the most common business processes from day one. There’s no need to slow down processes like creating quotes, invoices, purchase orders, or reports on current cash flow.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is the next generation of intelligent business applications that enable organizations to grow, evolve, and transform. To help get you up and running quickly, Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Financials is sold by a network of reselling partners like Scimitar Global Services Limited that offers both technical know-how and industry expertise.

Uncategorized, Video Engagements and Conferencing Solution

Video Banking : The next chapter in Bank’s digital transformation! Ain’t we lagging behind as usual?

004_vidyo_-future.jpg

In Q1 2016, Efma, a not-for-profit association of 3,300 retail financial services companies in more than 130 countries, and Vidyo, a leading visual collaboration provider Vidyo conducted a series of Think Tank meetings to understand the role that video banking plays in the digital transformation of banks. Sixty-three banking professionals from 24 countries participated in the meetings.
Additional quantitative data was collected regarding attitudes toward video banking via an online survey that was conducted in Q1 2016.Respondents included 136 bankers from 52 countries. This report consolidates the outcomes of these two activities and integrates primary information gathered from Vidyo’s experience in implementing video banking systems with banks around the globe.

The results of our survey strongly suggest that video bank solutions would be a welcome addition to existing options, with 93 percent of survey participants responding that they felt video banking would have a “Positive” or “Strongly Positive” impact on customer satisfaction.

This indication of consumer enthusiasm and high level of interest in video banking makes perfect sense considering how today’s free video conferencing apps such as Google Hangouts, Skype and Facetime are being embraced by the general public as a trusted and effective means of communication. The time is now for the widespread adoption of video banking…..” culled from a publication from Vidyo and Efma.

Bringing it back home they also stated that  “When customers and bank staff engage in banking transactions or consultations through remote video collaboration sessions, there seems to be an obvious solution as it offers more convenience to customers, since they can make their transactions from the comfort of their homes instead of traveling to the bank.

Video Banking 1

Video banking enables new and valuable engagement opportunities, such as the ability to include people who would not be able to attend in-person meetings, like remote subject matter experts or customer family members.

Verifiable Banking references according to the publication by Vidyo:  put Video Banking as the next best thing in Banking. Please read on:

“One successful early adopter of online video banking is IndusInd Bank, one of the fastest growing next-generation private sector banks in India. Induslnd launched their Video Branch service in June 2014, and made it available to their customers via desktop and mobile devices.
IndusInd Bank customers are now able to connect with their branch manager, relationship manager or with a centralized video branch executive. Patrons of the bank who are not residents of India are also able to experience this personalized video banking service from outside the country.

VidyoWorksTM is the only solution that could deliver on the promise of high quality connectivity from any location, on any device over any network and we are pleased to offer this very high-quality, easy to use service to our customers.”…….. Romesh Sobt (Managing Director and CEO,IndusInd Bank).

The offering encompasses all banking services that had previously been only available via IndusInd Bank Phone Banking. Additionally, Bank customers can choose to make other kinds of financial transactions such as opting for fixed deposits or recurring deposits, or transferring funds through NEFT and RTGS.
The Induslnd Bank launch was supported by an extensive nationwide advertising campaign and the new service is now positioned as a key innovation, creating a competitive advantage for the bank. Since the launch, IndusInd had seen a
massive ramp-up of the service and by mid-2015 the system was supporting 1,000 daily video calls and experiencing higher than 65 percent repeat usage.

Also see the extract on another Video banking reference : “Barclays Bank. To provide a new, secure, video-based service so that their customers could engage in banking activities wherever and whenever, Barclays Retail Bank launched its Video Anywhere service in the U.K. in December 2014. Today, in addition to the availability of bank representatives in a growing number of Barclays branches, the 24/7 service offers customers to speak to a video banker that can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or computer at a time and place convenient to them. At Barclays, video banking has become a powerful tool in deepening relationships with Clients and Customer; allowing multiple video bankers to be in one place enabling quick and easy sharing of best practice whilst also providing workforce flexibility without the constraints of the traditional Retail Network operating times.
The Barclays Video Anywhere service, initially offered only to Barclays Premier customers, will soon be available to the broader Barclays customer base. The phased roll out over the next 6 months targeting specific customer profiles such as frequent retail network users, digitally savvy but nervous adopters and
customers with accessibility requirements”.

Simon Separghan, Director of Global Contact Centres & Omni Channels of Barclays Retail Bank was also quoted in this report that “Customers continue to demand human touch and empathy and there is significant benefit to provide not only a voice, but a face of Barclays. The majority of our customers who experienced video banking now demand that their future servicing activity takes place via a video interaction. And If I take a like-for-like servicing request via traditional telephony vs. video banking, the NPS is almost double. It has incredible value for us as an organization.”
