Building relationships in today’s sales environment

The relationship between buyers and sellers grows more complex daily. Buyers have more information available to them than ever before and they use it to their advantage. TOPO research finds that most buyers are already 57 percent through the buying process before even talking to a supplier.

Yet when the time is right, buyers do still want personal attention from sellers. They are typically motivated to engage with sales reps only when it adds value to them. As a result, the sellers’ job is complicated as they must provide useful interactions and seamless transactions. So how can they accomplish this?

In this powerful eBook, customers learn how the Microsoft Relationship Sales solution is a combination of three tools that provide sales teams with access to critical data points from disparate platforms in one central location. The sales solution uses AI to analyze data from sales, Office 365, LinkedIn, and information gleaned from a CRM to provide a single relationship health score. What’s uniquely powerful about the solution is the unification of data available at seller’s fingertips.

Use this eBook as an educational tool for customers to gain a strong understanding of why the Microsoft Relationship Sales solution is a superior choice over other applications.

Airport security officer-turned-developer helps Heathrow book a faster journey to digital transformation

At Heathrow Airport, an airplane takes off every 45 seconds and nearly 80 million passengers are served annually, making it the busiest airport in Europe. As you might imagine, daily activities involved in running the airport--such as baggage handling, security, maintenance, and the like--add up to a staggering volume of paperwork that requires an equally staggering number of hours to complete. Amidst the bustle, one security officer identified a way that Heathrow could save both time and resources by digitizing certain security processes. He researched several Microsoft Power Platform blogs, taught himself how to code, and used Power BI, Power Apps, and Microsoft Flow to create a suite of apps that has not only saved 288 hours in data entry and eliminated 11,000 sheets of paper for security operations, but has also helped Heathrow Airport leap forward on its digital transformation journey. Watch the video to see how airport security officer Samit Saini helped transform Heathrow--and his own career--using Microsoft Power Platform.
