Our clients in the news: December 2016
The year 2016 – it was certainly an interesting one. But, while Britain was busy planning its Brexit and America was getting used to its new president elect, our clients spent December doing what they do best.
Here’s what they have been up to:
BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions
The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionising business and improving productivity, however, many organisations struggle to implement an IoT strategy because of the costs associated with doing so. In this article, published on IoT Now, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions CEO Tristan Watkins advises businesses on how to fund an IoT strategy.
Furthermore, writing for ChannelBiz, Tristan looked into what impact the subscription economy will have on the channel. He also provided comment to Farmers Guardian on the outlook for UK farming.
An expert on the ins and outs of sales, sales-i president and co-founder Kevin McGirl wrote a piece for Woodworking Network outlining four tips for building a strong sales culture. Committed to sharing his knowledge, he also wrote a piece for Cleaning Business Today. In this article he highlights three features of a successful sales culture that sales people should focus on to overcome their daily challenges.
Meanwhile, sales-i CEO Paul Black wrote a piece for the Packaging Gazette in which he urges the industry to get rid of its Goliath complex. In the article he states that certain industry players believe that only the biggest organisations can carve out a significant market share for themselves, however, this isn’t true.
We all use email almost every day, and when you do send a message you generally assume its contents is private to you and the person you sent it to. In this article in Inside CRM, Bullhorn MD, Peter Linas, says that this is not necessarily the best way to approach email communications, and makes the case for a transparent email system.
But Peter’s expertise doesn’t end at information transparency and its benefits. In December, he also wrote a piece for Business Advice detailing why a growing business should never stand still, as well as a piece for Sales Initiative on sales gamification.
Commenting on the future of the peer-to-peer lending industry, Nucleus Commercial Finance CEO, Chirag Shah, was interviewed for a Business Insider piece in which he says that more lending platforms will go bust this year. Chirag’s statement is also referenced in this Business Insider article, in which the publication explains why it agrees with his claim.
Furthermore, Nucleus also launched a range of specialist products for the education sector last month. This launch was covered by GTNews amongst others.
