We sell on behalf of international software companies and IT service companies that want to gain more customers in the German speaking markets.
Both! We are specialized to sell high-ticket offers (deal size €25k+) to enterprises and large enterprises in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Characteristics are: consultative sales, multi-touch, several decision makers and long sales cycles.
On behalf of our client we’re looking to make 5 bigger deals a year and not 20 smaller deals a month.
We use a value-based sales approach. Customers buy from our clients because of the product value and not because of the personal relationships we have in DACH.
That’s why we can sell to the HR Manager in large enterprises but also to the Innovation Manager in supermarket chains.
