As the industry continues to endure structural change, the business landscape for your clients has also been altered. How has this affected their view on print and print related services and its contribution to the success of their organization? How has this affected their view of your company and the impact you have on their success? If you think this would be critical information to have in your sales planning notes then a client review is in order.

Client reviews can come in various formats from very structured and scheduled to informal conversations as needed. The goal is to better determine your position with the account, discover opportunities for new and continuing business based on their changing goals and uncover information that could help strengthen the relationship and increase profitability. The client review should include both an internal evaluation of the client based on the factors that lead to profitability and growth as well as an interview with the client to determine your position and potential as you go forward. Get your team together and begin planning for client reviews for your top clients today.
