2. The BtoB commercial cost sales is about 15% of the productAssessmentprice. Companies often spend up to 80% of the businessdevelopment budget to earn 20% of new customers. A salemade with a new customer is nearly 7 times more expensivethan one made with existing customers. To simply transfer20% of the time from uncertain hunts to its existingcustomers would benefit to quickly gain results. A survey showed that 46% of customers leave their providerafter the first order, 24% after the second, 14% after the thirdand 12% after the fourth. We can conclude that a client is notactually acquired on the first order, but only after the thirdone... A major effort must be maintained to achieve it.

Performances amplifier Performances Step by step support towards customer service optimization and service and solution business model transition.To transform a cost centre into a profit centre is not an obvious fact.A customer service is complex and involves multiple competencies: finances,business, management, logistics and this, whatever the position ofresponsibility.There is not a unique business model applicable to any customer service, butmany hundreds of them, which always include: The constant features, common to any customer service.

Competencies and profitability shaker CompetenciesThe performance and customer relationship training centre.A unique pedagogical approach and original offer to acquire skills andoperational methodologies (Organizational, Relational, Business,Management...), on a pre-formatted (inter) or a custom (intra) mode.The ESSENTIALS:How to transform to a profit centre (Ref. CD-01)Customer relationship management (Ref. RC-01)Technical business unit management (Ref. MS-01)Remote teams management (Ref. MD-01)How to write efficient technical documents (Ref. PP-01) I followed the training "How to develop a customer service as a profit center"organized by ServAcademy. In addition to a non-fault session, I met a trainerChristophe Picot, mastering his subject, probably due to its extensive experience inmany different customer services. It is rare to encounter a teacher and trainer alsomotivated by what he does, and knows how to pass both the motivation andknowledge for trainees. Days with him, yet extremely responsible, seem too short.But the most surprising in this training is to develop the principles and logic thatmight seem complex, via an extremely simple methodology (ConceptSAV). Insummary, we leave this training with acquired know-how that actually allows totransform an ordinary cost center into a true Customer Service with all the benefitsattached to it. And all this in a highly friendly way. Remi S., Customer Service Manager (Electronics equipment manufacturer).Confidential document Cepheus Group 2012 - 13 14.
