How we sell:

Our new business team operates based on two core assumptions…

  1. We can research how our prospective customers would benefit from Knexus platform before we even meet them (at product demo stage). This means we do a lot of preparation before we even meet prospects, which reduces the time required on discovery in early meetings and allows us to show Knexus platform sooner

     

  2. Knexus platform typically exceeds customer expectations – so we look for the quickest path to get prospects signed up and using the platform
