Productivity in the B2B industry did not suffer during the recent pandemic. As a matter of fact, productivity went up 10-fold in many instances. The reason that most B2B companies were able to ride out the storm reasonably unscathed and some actually prospered is the prevalence of digital and virtual technologies that were already in place and allowed people to work remotely.
Crisis leads to innovation
B2B sales is also experiencing a productivity and economic boom driven by innovations in digital and smart technologies. B2B sales and marketing, as we have known it, has irreversibly changed – and for the better. Sales pitches that were previously conducted through in-person meetings are now delivered virtually. The post-pandemic economic boom promises radical shifts in productivity. For example, with new virtual and smart technologies in place, B2B sales reps increased their out-bound call rate by as much as 10 times!
