However, faced with changes in distribution systems, economic impacts to transportation and logistics, and limitations that prevent taking full advantage of improvements in technology, <Client’s Company>  faces the possibility of decreasing sales revenues due customer perceptions of slow delivery and services. We have developed solutions to help businesses stay ahead of customer satisfaction trends and propose that <Client’s Company>  implement a logistics solution focused on JIT order management and automation of many manual steps in your delivery process. Our solution easily integrates with a wide range of off-the-shelf CRM solutions and can enable <Client’s Company>  to fully realize the benefits of improved productivity throughout the entire sales cycle. Most importantly, we provide the training and support for this new solution that ensures your staff can ramp up quickly and realize concrete improvements in sales closure, customer satisfaction, and sales metrics.
