The Need
High-Performing Inside Sales Function

The portfolio company, a leader in e-commerce with the majority of its sales online, aimed to diversify its sales channels by building a traditional inside sales function. The goal was to develop a system that could be effectively managed and maintained by a future mid-level manager.

The Challenge
Creating Sales Process from Ground Up

Starting with little to no existing inside sales process, the challenge was to create a data-driven inside sales function from scratch. This involved assessing current performance, establishing processes and KPIs and generating ROI from the new sales function, all while ensuring a smooth transition to future management.
