Others such as the Sales Admin will process their orders and ensure deliveries go out or goods are ordered in. Finance will do the invoicing and collecting the payments, but you should understand the financial position of each of your clients, so that means if we run out of stock for you client its your responsibility

• Inventory Planning for each and every client to forecast their usage and needs so MWP can better plan their stock holding and purchasing rates

• Sales Trip Planning – This involves planning trips 1-2 months in advance with your manager and other BDM’s to achieve the best rates and be better prepared for each, so appointments can be confirmed and constructive

• Sales Budgeting – Forecasting site by site, machine by machine the expected sales throughout your territory of responsibility

• Attending conferences and exhibitions as required to market the company and our products and services

• Undertaking market surveys to ensure the availability of up to date information for strategic parts and services categories
• Foster trust relationships with internal stakeholders to ensure maximum business penetration of sales initiatives
• Assist with development of forecasts for product demand to ensure the sustainability of inventory
