What our customers are saying...

"When I first started working with Methods in Motion, we were implementing a new CRM. The Methods in Motion Opportunity Management System fit in perfectly and helped us not only use our new CRM as a reporting tool but also as a strategy tool for gaining new business. We established a common language and began to better strategize driving up new accounts and category growth, while also reinforcing a more consistent prospecting routine.

What made the biggest impact on a program that was well received by our seasoned sales team was the time invested in 1 on 1 interviews in advance. Those conversations really helped zero in on the sales challenges our team members were facing and ensured the program was tailored specifically to us. I confidently endorse Methods in Motion for any company looking to improve their sales process and results of their sales team."

Ed Hodgson, Senior Managing Partner

“Prior to working with Methods in Motion, we were struggling to implement an efficient, yet valuable business development management system. The Methods in Motion Opportunity Management System has helped our sales organization focus on the most important aspects of sales. As the leader, I now have much better insight into the planning and effort needed for my team to gain new business. As a result of using a common language, the ambiguity has been removed when talking about our opportunities. My team has appreciated the simplicity yet effective organization and structure that the Methods in Motion system has provided”

Mike Heischman, COO

"In October of 2013, our CEO told me we were going to start an inside sales department and asked me to start to build that department. I was charged with going out and learning how to do and that’s what I did.

I spent about 6 months figuring out how to do it and got about 45-50% of the way and then we found Methods in Motion. They showed me everything else I needed and did it exactly how I would have done it and it’s been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I’m so thankful we found Methods in Motion and our department would not be what it is today without their guidance and help!"

We started our inside sales from the ground up with her team, if we had not had their support and expertise, this program would not gotten off the ground.

“Glory USA, Inc. has used Methods in Motion for the last couple of years to help us improve how we manage the pipeline and help our salespeople set more appointments at the Executive level. Late last year, Marisa brought to our Management Team's attention a reinforcement program called M.O.S.T. …The content is definitely in sync with what we need to hear and the monthly quizzes allow me to hold my team accountable. Personally, I like that the program is ongoing--a constant reinforcement. …I have little doubt that this program has helped the majority of our salespeople secure a few extra appointments each month, which makes M.O.S.T. easily cost justifiable for us.”

“I attribute much of the success my past Inside Sales teams experienced to Methods in Motion. They trained our fast-growing team of 60+ Inside Sales reps when I was District Sales Manager at Lonesource (later acquired by Staples). As Director of Sales at Campus Special (later acquired by Chegg), I brought them on to build our team of around 20 National Inside Sales Reps. We grew 120% our first year with them on board and found it to be extremely beneficial.”

“I have been a long term advocate of the strategies Methods in Motion is dedicated to helping companies learn in order to improve sales results. They have the advantage of having chosen sound strategies and processes that work for all types of organizations, plus having the ability to assess, teach, lead, and motivate those exposed to their training. In short, it works, they work, and I'd not hesitate to bring them into another setting were I to be in one where I see needs in their area of expertise.”
