Issues impeding the advancement of growth

The following represents consistent issues we have indentified within manufacturing and distribution environments that drive a need for Athena’s services and process model:

  1. Level to minimal sales growth due to ineffectiveness to steal or grab new market share (gain entry)
  2. Sales teams consist of "farmer” or account management mentality and very little capabilities or process structure to "hunt" new business consistently and keep the sales pipeline filled.
  3. Diminishing customer share and/or slowly eroding margins within current customer accounts driving the need for more new, profitable relationships
  4. Economy is driving these entities to look at their sales and marketing structures in a different way based upon the above mentioned realities
