“We sought assistance from Connects to help us gain penetration into a major customer where we previously had little contact. Robin and her team worked with us to understand our company and develop a profile to assist them in their efforts. Working from this minimal amount of data, they were able to make contacts deep inside our target customer within the first week. We began receiving high quality leads almost immediately with individuals from both engineering and procurement (our two targets). Within two weeks, we had more leads than we could effectively follow up on. More importantly, Robin and her staff were able to generate interest with the Customer to meet with us to learn about our capabilities. As a result, we have been invited to conduct Lunch and Learn sessions for engineers at three separate divisions within our target customer.
We could not have hoped for any better results than what the team at Connects was able to produce in such a short period of time working with minimal input from us. We expect the leads they uncovered to continue to generate new opportunities for us well into the future.
I give my highest recommendation for Robin and her team.”
