Check out Your Coverage in the Global Decision Orchard

The McIlvaine Global Decisions Orchard (GDO) receives more than 30,000 hits per week from searchers looking for technical and product information. Thousands of pages of data and pictures, as well as hundreds of recordings are freely accessed.

There are two ways to search for data. The Quick Search allows you to insert any word and see all the information containing that word in the title, summary or structured key words. The result is you receive much more unique current and focused information than on a Google search.

The Full Display allows you to benefit from decisive classification. All decisions are a series of classifications. A system which provides the real options at each step along the way is much more useful than the random methods. Classification is by:

·                     product according to actual use,

·                     companies with a unique numerical indicator to eliminate the language problems,

·                     applications with a precise two record description, and

·                     precise labeling,

·                     division of processes, materials, pollutants, etc.

This search system leads the searcher immediately to the most comprehensive information.

Collaboration is the Key to the Full Utilization of the Digital Universe

The European Trade Fair Industry is built on a thousand year old tradition of annual or bi-annual gatherings to bring buyer and seller together. The advent of the printing press in 1440 started the evolution in mass communication. The telephone and telegraph some 400 years later created the next big step toward better buyer-seller communication.

Improvements in the postal service and written communications were steady but not spectacular until the development of high speed telefax systems in the late 1980s.

From this point forward, digital communication technology has grown so rapidly that it has obsolesced many sales tools and approaches. The problem is that most companies have not been able to take advantage of these advances.

Unless information is placed in the right hands, at the right time, it is not valuable.  Competitors and customers dictate the deviation of the “right time.” Younger people in a purchasing and specifying role are accustomed to instant answers to their queries.

With comprehensive information on process and products available with a click of a mouse, the purchaser rightly expects a level of knowledge and expertise on the part of the salesman which is much greater than in the days of the “two martini lunch.”

There is no way that the salesman can memorize the multitude of useful data he may need at a given moment. He has to have a system which can supply this information on demand. This means access to data as well as company experts.

Customer Relationship Management, Business Intelligence and Sales Intelligence systems all provide ways to organize the mountain of digital information. But unless they supply the right information, they are not of much use. If the individuals within the organization do not collaborate to divide and analyze the mountain appropriately, the system will fail.

It takes a system which combines Knowledge + Organization + Collaboration (KOC) to maximize sales and technical opportunities. The McIlvaine KOC strategy integrates on all three requirements.  For more information, click on:
