WHY WORK WITH AST
Customers establishing a relationship with AST have intimate access to a network of subject matter exports with an impressive track record of developing the best solutions to complex security requirements.
For a manufacturer, hiring a sales and business development firm is a cost-effective way to leverage expertise versus the expense of an in-house sales force with the associated costs of salary, medical insurance, workers compensation, HR, travel and entertainment.
Manufacturers’ representatives are not just experts on your product; they also are experts in their industries and often identify synergies among complimentary technologies which create more opportunities and more sales.
Our focus is:
Sales Channel Management
Specifying with A&E firms
Bringing Value to Integrators
Working closely with End Users
Solution Selling in a Complex Marketplace
AST's work experience with the manufacturers and end users best positions us to understand the full scope of a large security project. AST works with manufacturers to provide all the pertinent information necessary for a smooth equipment purchase, installation, commissioning and the maintenance of systems over the long term. We help take the guess work out of establishing operational requirements, marshaling resources, and seeing the project through as envisioned by every stakeholder in the process.
It was an easy decision to hire AST as our contracted sales representative. You keep business acumen and the strategic planning to position AST in the security market paid immediate return to FLIR.
