But don’t just take our word for it. Here is some feedback from other AD members.
“SMP has proven invaluable to the success of our Field Marketing Summit. By tasking our sales force with identifying customer targets to discuss with manufacturers at our FMS event, we are able to log these targets into SMP and easily monitor and evaluate throughout the year. SMP’s dashboards provide an accountability, accuracy, and efficiency that was not easily attained in prior years and we couldn’t imagine conducting a successful FMS without it.”
— Tim Fleming, Vice President of Purchasing & Marketing of ESE
“Throughout the year, our account managers update progress on their strategic action plans in the SMP activity until the goal is achieved. SMP activities provide focus for our account managers as well as visibility for both the Standard Electric sales management team and the AD manufacturer partners.“
— Dan Knapp, Director of Sales at Standard Electric Supply Co
