We contacted Mike as a freelancer to help us with our sales for our small brewery. As a small business we were finding it difficult to employ someone in a permanent role, the solution offered by Calm Services was the perfect option. An extremely conscientious and focused individual, he worked hard to secure sales and his communication is second to none. We are very happy to be working with Mike going forward.
We appointed Calm Services to assist our sales team with some market research into a particular sector of the industry. As the project developed Mike was able to deliver more ‘on the ground’ knowledge of the potential customers including key contacts and assess the level of demand. As a consequence we grew our client database significantly which led to new sales from a sector which was previously ignored. We have continued our relationship with Calm Services by integrating their services into our general sales strategy. Mike makes regular sales calls on our behalf and has developed a good understanding of our products. In addition we are now working with Calm Services to create a more detailed CRM system which will hopefully deliver benefits to the business in the future.
We have known Mike from Calm Services for a number of years, and we have worked in similar industries in the past. We knew we could benefit from an extra person helping with customer visits, sourcing new customer leads and contacting them, offering our services and recommending us. With a tailor-shaped plan and mutual agreement formed for us, Calm Services have continuously worked as if they were an integral part of our own team, understanding our values well. Mike has such a wealth of experience in many industries, he has an excellent ability to learn product knowledge and processes very quickly. Calm Services have been willing to travel anywhere in the UK representing us and have gained significant leads for us to work with, relieving some of the day-to-day sale pressures for myself. I would highly recommend their services.
