    Defining clear value propositions of the various Planon solutions: your job

    As a New Business Sales, your main focus is identifying, creating and closing new business opportunities. How? First by building a sustainable pipeline of new opportunities and secondly for Planon’s Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) within EMEA West (Nordics, Netherlands and the UK) by closing those opportunities successfully.

    You successfully fulfill your role by:

    • Target and discover new opportunities for key accounts in existing and new target markets
    • Realizing personal and/or team sales target according to the Planon Prime Process
    • Pro-actively represent Planon in existing and new target markets according to the Planon strategy
    • Respond to RFQs and RFPs
    • Manage key account opportunities according to price agreements, terms of payment and credit entries within the boundary conditions set
    • Attend events and show active presence on social media
    • Ensure a reliable pipeline and forecast in Salesforce
    • Check outstanding invoices on a regular basis and contact the customer if the invoice has not been paid
