We are very pleased to be sponsoring the ‘Sales Support Team of the Year’. As an ISM Approved Training Provider; KSA Sales Solutions believes this team plays a key role in developing great customer experiences in an ethical and professional manner. They are the conduit between the internal and the external customers. They work at the front line and ‘how’ they engage with customer, can create long-lasting, customer/supplier relationships. Their key role is not always recognised, so we are pleased that BEMSA recognises the important work of these unsung heroes."
