By Aisling White, Senior Marketing Specialist
There is a celebratory mood in Sage Ireland last Friday after the Business Advice Team were announced as winners in the “Champion Sales Support Team” category at the 2nd annual Irish Sales Champion Awards which took place in the Guinness Storehouse on Thursday, 7th June.
The team beat off still competition from the shortlist of Board Gáis and Call Management (Done Deal) to pick up the top gong. As the first point of contact for the Sage sales the Business Advice Team play a crucial role in the business. Customers get immediate access to a product expert, who can provide commercial and product guidance on our vast range of software solutions and are advised on the best solution to suit their business needs. The team excel in their role and to have this recognised amongst their peers is a great honour.
Lorna Keogh, Sage’s Business Advice Manager commented on the win “The best thing about working for Sage is the people and I feel my team really are a testament to that. They work hard and hit goals and targets in a fast paced competitive sales environment yet they never lose sight of what is meant by teamwork and collaboration. As a team we work closely with the sales, marketing and product management teams. We have never been afraid to do things differently or to introduce new ideas and we endeavour to give each internal and external customer an extraordinary customer experience. I am so proud of my team and delighted to see their work acknowledged and rewarded. Thank you to our sales and marketing teams for nominating us and to the judges for choosing us”.
Sage’s Marketing & Digital Manager Avril McArdle added “I’m so proud of Lorna and the team on this award. I see their commitment to the Sage business and our customers every day so it’s great to see them also getting recognised by the wider sales community for a job very well done. The team consistently demonstrate the Sage values, they are always helpful, enthusiastic, professional and above all, passionate about what they do and how they do it. They give excellent customer service at all times and they are worthy Sage ambassadors. I am proud to work with such a great team every day”.
