Reno, NV (PRWEB) September 13, 2010
Miller Heiman, one of the most prominent sales performance consulting organizations today, announced today that Biocare Medical, LLC has been selected as the winner of its 2010 Sales Team Makeover. The cancer and disease diagnostics company will receive a service package valued at more than $100,000 from Miller Heiman and Makeover partners, Hoover's, Jigsaw, and Selling Power, customized to address sales performance goals for the organization.
"We had a number of applicants who were looking to take their performance to the next level," said Nattalie Hoch, sales vice president at Miller Heiman. "It was tough to select only one organization, but we're very excited about working with the team at Biocare Medical. They will help us demonstrate that, with a clearly-defined approach and the right commitment, small changes can produce fast results."
The company will work with a Miller Heiman sales consultant from the diagnostics industry to assess current needs and map out which changes will help the team achieve both quick results and long-term objectives. In addition, Biocare will receive a combination of sales performance resources from the contest co-sponsors to help facilitate the adoption of new processes and tools. Miller Heiman will chronicle the progress of the Makeover by posting feedback from the Biocare Medical team members on key milestones achieved as they work toward their outlined goals.
"Although we just finished our best quarter ever, we are always looking for ways to improve our sales performance," said Roy Yih, co-founder and CEO of Biocare Medical. "With Miller Heiman as our partner, we believe we'll be able to develop the skills we need to continue our record-breaking year."
The team will receive a combination of services including sales process implementation and life-time support from Miller Heiman, a business intelligence subscription from Hoover's, cloud-based data services for lead generation and business development support from Jigsaw, and a collection of sales resources from Selling Power.
"Their organizational culture is tightly aligned with our belief that any transformation must be driven from the top down to truly drive behavioral change and results," said Hoch. "This will be critical as we help them tap into the opportunities in their market."
Miller Heiman selected San Francisco-based flavoring syrup maker, Torani, as last year's winning team. The story of the company's sales transformation was featured in a recent edition of Selling Power.
All remaining applicants will be awarded a two-hour consultation with a Miller Heiman sales expert in their respective industries. To discuss the challenges facing your organization contact 1-877-506-2973.
