We are so impressed with the system that we recommend it to every one of our suppliers

- World leader in Battery Design is so pleased with sales-i’s sales reporting and customer spend alerts that it’s recommending it to all its suppliers and customers-

Solihull, UK – July 22nd , 2009 – sales-i, ( the real-time sales intelligence service for front line sales people, today announced that world leading battery design and manufacturer, Yuasa ( who invested in sales-i back in February, is enjoying very positive benefits and return in new sales and customer spend.

Yuasa is a world leader in industrial and automotive battery design and manufacture and has distributors all over the world. Yuasa has been involved in the automotive industry for many years selling Yuasa batteries and other well-known brands including Lucas, Tungstone, Crompton and Oldham throughout the UK and Europe. Yuasa is now a world leading supplier of automotive batteries with OEM customers that include such well known names as; Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Ford, Chevrolet, Daimler, Chrysler, Peugeot, General Motors, Hyundai, Suzuki, Isuzu and Yamaha.

James Hylton, Sales & Marketing Manager in Yuasa Battery UK’s automotive division is delighted with how well sales-i has been accepted by his sales team and the results they are getting from it. “They are raving about it!,” James says. “Some were initially sceptical about what the system could offer and there was a degree of reticence with new technology. But in no time, they were getting alerts on customers whose spend had dropped or who were buying one product and not another and armed with this information they have had very positive, successful meetings and sales. What salesman wouldn’t love it?”

Now the Yuasa sales force uses sales-i to give them a snapshot view of the account and that combined with the alert system, makes their meetings more focused, productive and successful. James explains, “Our customers love it too. We can simply show them what they are missing out on, how they could improve margins by buying certain products or quantities and this is really going down very well indeed. Our customer visits are now very focused and profitable.”

James adds. “sales-i takes the guess work out of selling and identifies if a customer’s buying behaviour changes so you can do something about it before the customer strays elsewhere. We are so impressed with the system that we recommend it to every one of our suppliers. ”

Paul Black is co-founder of sales-i and delighted with the very visible sales success at Yuasa. “sales-i is making a real difference to companies large and small by providing insight into how customers are buying and identifying gaps and opportunites. It is so rewarding to hear how Yuasa’s sales team has embraced sales-i and turned it to their and the customers’ advantage.”
