The other day I was going through my daily routine and stopped to reflect on how technology has taken over almost every aspect of my life. As I started my car in the morning from my cellphone and then set my home security system from an app while I was in my car, I also thought about how technology has affected sales and business.Remember the days when you would bring a paper notebook to a sales meeting? How about the days when you would print out directions from MapQuest to ensure you didn't get lost driving to your sales appointment?And how about the way we communicated with prospects and customers? We were limited to a phone, email and snail mail. If we were brave, we might even stop by an office unannounced and try to score a meeting with someone.Well, those days are long gone. Sales enablement technology is something sales professionals of all ages need to recognize and embrace if they want to survive in this fast-paced, information-overloaded world because technology has made … [Read more...] about Christopher Thompson’s Closing the Deal: Keeping up with sales technology

For McDonalds (MCD), all-day breakfast was a big hit when CEO Steve Easterbrook launched it last October, but Wall Street is now wondering what else he can cook up. Critics still accuse the home of the Golden Arches of becoming too complacent in the face of heightened competition from rivals and changing consumer tastes. And now that the hoopla surrounding the all-day breakfast promotion has died down, investors want more from the chain. It’s not that Easterbrook isn’t listening: He’s in the midst of an ambitious plan to overhaul the giant fast-food chain. A U.K. native, Easterbrook has vowed to slash $500 million in costs by 2018; overhaul the chain’s menu, which franchisees have complained for years has become bloated with poorly selling items; and improve customer service, which has long been a weakness.
