Your buyers have “digitally transformed” but has your website?  It is only natural that company officials on the buy-side, those charged with specifying and procurement,  to very quickly realize the efficiency gains, cost savings and the shift of control that the internet delivers.  However those on the sell-side have not been as fast to adjust.

Be a fly on the wall when a model new prospective customer during their buying process and ask yourself, “what does the buyer want?”  Asking, answering and addressing that question will lead you to a digital transformation and that will give you a significant sales advantage.  The advantage can be disproportionate to past sales scenarios where frequently price determined the sale.  This is not to suggest price is not important, but when you consider how much more likely are you to get a chance to quote when the buyer is able to very quickly determine your products are ideally suited for their requirement. In today’s environment where companies operate lean making it easy for buyers to do business with your company is half the battle.  Consider whether your website puts your products and company in the best possible light. Moreover does your website in anyway make it easy for a first time visitor to discover that you have the best product to fit their application. If not than you are losing out on new customers even when your website is found during search.  Thomas Navigator will enable a more rapid digital transformation and help your company to solve this problem.
