Our sales challenge

We are a small company operating worldwide, in an innovative niche market. We have an international network. From inside and outside this network we get requests to develop, participate, lead or coordinate projects. These (email) requests would need to be streamlined and handled with care and dedication, which now is not always the case. 

Besides requests, we are also always on the lookout for new projects, talking to possible prospects and visiting trade fairs. Setting up these kinds of appointments could also use more attention and dedication than currently is being done.
