- Do I have opportunities which are stalled?
- Am I getting push back from a customer?
- Is there a creative approach to help me close this deal?
- How do I pull in some deals from 2014 to have a successful 2013 year end?
- What can I do to help my customer with financing?
- I have a customer with a technical issue and I’m not sure how to resolve it. What do I do?
- More of my customers are looking for a solution approach. How can I stay relevant?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you should not miss this session. In a one-on-one environment, the Collaboration sales and technical teams will meet with you to address the questions which are top of mind, help you develop a solution and win the business.
Hosted in Markham by the IBM Innovation Center, this event will help you uncover new opportunities to expand your ecosystem.
