Challenges we solve

Building a successful KAM strategy

One size doesn’t fit all with key account management. 

Coordinating cross-functionally

B-to-B sales has become an organization-wide, cross-functional effort, and siloed teams and functions are barriers to best-in-class KAM. 

Equipping KAM teams to succeed

Key account management requires specialized skill sets and competencies.

Designing metrics and motivation systems

To assess and improve performance across roles and functions, you need to take a balanced-scorecard approach.
