After our international sales meeting was relocated to digital in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were all the more pleased to welcome our sales team back to Heidenheim on July 8.
The prelude was marked by a joint dinner the evening before, which offered the opportunity to exchange experiences in a relaxed atmosphere. In particular, this also gave our newest employees the chance to get to know the sales team.
The following day, the first part of our sales meeting started early in the morning. Besides the recapitulation of the business development in 2020 so far, the consequences, opportunities, and risks that Covid-19 has created were discussed. During the second part of the meeting, an outlook was given on the measures planned for the rest of 2020. Special attention was paid to the newly established central marketing department, which will enable us to place our customers even more strongly at the center of our business activities.
The afternoon offered the opportunity to clarify specific questions and discuss new ideas in individual workshops and personal exchanges. In particular, we discussed the new online machine configurator and our digital solutions for collaboration within our team.
