American Fork, UT (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
In a down economy, one Utah-based security company, AMP Security, has soared in growth increasing its revenue by phenomenal rates. AMP Security, which was featured as the 5th fastest growing company in Utah County by Utah Valley Business Quarterly Magazine, growing by 228% over a 3 year period from 2007-2010, with revenues in excess of $27 million in 2010 (http://utahvalleybusinessq.com/uv50/2011-uv50-top-30-fastest-growing-companies).
With many companies experiencing significant downsizing and layoffs, AMP founder Allen Bolen, has capitalized on the opportunity that the economy has created in the job market, “a tough employment market increases the supply of talented people for key positions,” says Bolen. Many companies and start-ups have been cautious to enter the market place or nervous to add expansions to its current operations, but Bolen states, “I believe in grindstone mentality…grinding it out takes longer, but it’s the surer path. If you wait for big breaks, you may be left waiting.”
One of the keys to AMP’s phenomenal growth has been its focus on its sales staff. AMP provides the best training, support and opportunity to its sales force, as evidenced by its incredible sales rep and office averages. AMP averaged 108 accounts per sales rep in 2011, soaring head and shoulders above its competitors. This was an increase from 2010 in both averages and total sales volume. At AMP, sales reps are the lifeblood of the company and Bolen believes that one of the pillars of AMP’s success is its unique philosophy of “Treating its sales reps like customers”.
