Quite often, actually. We are not the implementors of CRM systems, but we do help you leverage what you have by creating the right reports and forecasts that give you data you can manage from.

Do you help with sales incentives or compensation plans?

Yes! Compensation that is aligned with your company strategy is key to driving the right behaviors. We help design, model, test, and roll-out plans with your team.

As part of our engagements, we do help with defining the roles, developing the interview process, participate in interviews, make hiring recommendations, develop compensation plans, and even create comprehensive onboarding plans.  If you want more information call us at 952-226-3381 or email us at info@pivotaladvisors.com.

The short answer is we don’t need to know everything about your industry to help you.  Yes, we do take the time to learn about your company, industry, products, and competition.
