The focus of Geoplan's offer is the provision of tools to assist in effective resource deployment; the efficient management of sales - based territories and the creation of clear and quantifiable franchise territories, territory boundaries and performance potential is central to this theme. Resource costs are high, the need for efficiency and effectiveness is key. Using this process leads can be accurately allocated, gaps, overlaps and wasted effort can be eradicated.
Geoplan provides the necessary building blocks, data and tools to understand the current position and define an effective structure based on performance variables and targets of your choice. New national territories can be formed or existing territories or franchise areas can be fine tuned to improve performance potential.
As you make changes to franchise territory boundaries all performance and lead data is carried with it, ensuring the seamless re-allocation of work, which can be fed back into central systems as required.
This approach can also be applied within the territories to assist in directing effort where it will generate best return.
