Adivent, a European sales outsourcing company focused on the telecom market, today announced that Aethra, a leading player in the global telecommunications marketplace, has contracted with Adivent for sales program development and execution targeted to telecom operators in Central Europe. The new partnership may extend into other areas such as Northern Europe in the future. Adivent offers a new alternative that streamlines the sales and operations process and allows telecom suppliers to quickly establish a sales presence in Europe at a fraction of the time and cost it typically takes using traditional methods.
“Aethra is a great example of a highly diversified hardware company that needed a focused and targeted sales campaign for a very specific line of business, and instead of investing in the hard costs of building out a program, turned to Adivent and its established network of telecom sales professionals,” said Gianni Burzi, managing partner at Adivent. “We look forward to working together with Aethra and helping the company grow its market share in Central European.”
Adivent will focus on helping increase sales of Aethra’s industry leading network products, including its carrier-grade gateway, ISDN and xDSL systems. Its SalesTargetSource(TM) sales offering provides a complete turnkey service to quickly ramp-up a sales team that has an extensive network of telecom relationships, certified sales skills and a proven track record of success. The services are backed by a Service Level Agreement that guarantees fees are only charged after pre-determined results have been delivered. In addition, Adivent offers complete transparency into sales campaign progress and direct access to and directional input with its new sales force.
“When we decided to focus more sales resources toward our network systems within Central Europe, the challenge was to find the most effective solution to optimize penetration, and valorize our range of networking products in these markets,” said Marco Viezzoli, CEO of Aethra. “With Adivent, we can quickly begin the selling process at a fraction of the cost and leverage the experience and professionalism of its established network of sales associates.”
