Be Different. Deliver Excellence.

Get Paid for Your Time and Work on Network Assessments

The most critical step of the managed services sales cycle is the Network Assessment. It requires a substantial amount of time, labor and hard work. Service Providers invest hours, even days performing an upfront Network Assessment only to find out the customer is not interested in moving forward. Unpaid labor time coupled with lost productivity from the Network Assessment result in company dollars down the drain. Charge for Network Assessments to avoid lost time and money, and to also drive additional revenue.

Charging for the Network Assessment can help you:

  • Invest in qualified prospects
  • Improve close ratios
  • Increase sales
  • Gain additional revenue
  • Shorten sales cycle

Revenue has gone up since charging for Network Assessments. We have gained time and revenue by identifying quality clients who see the value in paying for our Network Assessment fee, and the solution we provide.”
