Sales & Distribution

The Challenge

Delays and inconsistencies within Sales Operations often lead to delays in onboarding new customers and may ultimately results in lost sales. For example, the internal processes and administration involved in setting up new customers in SAP can be painful and prevent new sales from closing due to a bad first impression.
