CASE ONE

Extensive Sales Transformation for an Automotive Importer in the Middle East

 

Profound Challenges and In-Depth Analysis by AMENA:

A leading Automotive Importer in the Middle East faced critical sales challenges, with rapidly declining market share, increasing customer dissatisfaction, and a notable drop in team morale.

The sales team, once celebrated for its dynamic approach, was struggling with obsolete methods and diminishing effectiveness, leading to a severe downturn in sales and profitability.
