The direct sales industry, generally speaking, gets a bad rap for its technology. In fact, at a recent industry event, Exigo’s CSO, Jack Farris, overheard this sadly funny but realistic claim, “Too many direct sales IT Departments build beasty internal systems as they interpret what the C-suite wants. Instead of a horse, they get a camel.”
So, why is Exigo the right choice for a direct sales company being challenged by leadership to expand its market footprint?
"Having a platform as a service offering that includes market expertise in 120 countries, 40 currencies, and 30 languages is a great place to start," Farris quipped.
Indeed, Exigo has helped nearly a thousand companies open their direct sales doors and open new markets as they grew. Exigo’s platform as a service continues to deliver to its customers the right solution for the specific pain point they might be experiencing.
Often, expansion means international growth, and with that growth comes a laundry list of complexities ranging from currencies to security to compliance on a regional level. These complexities can and often dog internal development teams pushing off deadlines from senior leadership and projections for growth, exposing the company to missed market opportunities.
With decades of Industry experience built into the platform combined with right fit professional services, Exigo delivers a proven, powerful performance upgrade to its customers.
The Exigo Professional Services Team works with customers to determine the most effective course of action — in most cases – the most direct line to its growth strategy. Whether that is the customer “BYOD’ing” (‘bringing your own developers’), utilizing internal Exigo developers or working with third-party teams to go where the market mandates.
“We’ve proven for decades that our teams are flexible, that our platform is powerful, and that we can solve a company’s growth needs better than anyone else in the industry, “ Farris continued.
“We have a customer ready to move into Korea – or so they thought. So, after we came in, we turned what they were facing as an 18 month delay entering that market into a successful launch in under eight weeks. This is why you go with Exigo.”
At that same industry event, the message was simple: Invest heavily in developing (back office) solutions. Is the IT Department at an impasse? Invest in technology/IT, even at the peril of other departments, so you have the tools and data for success.
