Our Work

Only corporate visions uses a third-party measurement firm to document client results

Beyond ROI has been assessing and gathering business results surveys on Corporate Visions clients for the past two years. In all, more than 60 companies have been reviewed 90 days after implementing Corporate Visions Customer Conversation programs.

On average, these companies have been able to document a 10-30X hard dollar return on their investment in Corporate Visions programs in just the first 90 days after they launch to the field. They’ve documented behavior change in sales people. And, they’ve discovered that high adopters who use the messages, tools and skills more than 75 percent of the time have deal sizes that are 2-3x larger than low adopters. Furthermore, high adopters demonstrate a 3-4x greater increase in quota achievement than low adopters.

By correlating performance to adoption levels and behavior change, the third party ROI firm tells us they can confidently attribute the performance difference to the Corporate Visions programs. In fact, the ROI firm tells us that in all their years measuring programs like this for companies, they’ve never seen anything perform as consistently well as Corporate Visions programs.

We were a solid company — in the top three to five in most categories in terms of sales — but we needed a new energy to take us to being a top performer. The Power Messaging system gave Miranda’s marketing team a better understanding of the conversations sales reps needed to have with prospects to improve their performance. Sales calls were less about what Miranda’s products do and more about what they mean to the customer.”

Coverall logo
One of our most difficult tasks in sales training had been getting our reps up to speed quickly on our messaging. In the past, we had them read brochures sit through operations training and shadow other reps and we hoped that the messaging would sink in. Now with Corporate Visions messaging and our online, just-in-time training tools, we are confident that our reps are getting the right messaging in a consistent way. Everything that we do, and how we communicate it to customers is now in one place ready to use when our reps need it. This has been extremely helpful in getting new reps up to speed quickly.”

Featured Case Study: Fortune 500 High-Tech Company

While untrained regions continued to degrade their discounting rates by 1.8%, trained regions improved their discounting by 1%. In total, this was a 2.8% net improvement in discounting between the trained and untrained regions, for a $1.8M return in the first quarter alone. These pilot results drove a global roll-out to thousands of salespeople.
