    • Customer Acquisition is Difficult and Slow

      Reliance on cold calling, little-to-no inbound sales leads, first meeting acquisition is less than optimal.

      Unknown in the marketplace, “old” PR and awareness tactics no longer are effective, positioning is off point.
      Data Foundation is Missing or Broken
      CRM contains bad/missing contact and account data, no base to leverage high functioning sales and marketing plan implementations.
