AVANT’s focus on channel sales enablement drives company success. 

Chicago, Illinois—March 6, 2018  AVANT Communications, the leader in channel sales enablement for next-generation IT solutions, today announced completion of its first company NPS® survey. AVANT surveyed its customers — leading VARs, MSPs and Agencies located in the US, UK and Canada — receiving an NPS score of 84.

“Our focus on empowering people to be the best sellers they can be is working,” said Ian Kieninger, chief executive officer, AVANT.  “But you know you are making an impact when you get feedback like this.” Kieninger attributes this NPS score to the company’s strategies of:

  • Building innovative sales resources, including the BattleApp and the BattleLab
  • Delivering effective sales training, like BattleBriefings and Special Forces
  • Hiring the best sales engineers and channel managers

NPS measures a customer’s willingness to recommend a company and gauges customer satisfaction and loyalty.  According to an article in Inc. magazine, an NPS score above 0 is considered good, above 50 is excellent, and above 70 is world-class. The NPS score is also viewed as a key indicator of revenue growth potential.

AVANT’s survey participants further rated the firm on a number of satisfaction-related dimensions, using a 0-to-10 point scale — where 0 represented “strongly disagree” and 10 represented “strongly agree.”  The company received an average score of 9 out of 10 for all of the following specific assessment statements:

  • AVANT Helps Me Enable My Sales
  • AVANT Has Strong Industry Knowledge
  • AVANT Provides Great Training
  • AVANT Provides Great Pricing Analysts
  • AVANT Provides Great Sales Tools
  • AVANT has a Great Catalog of Service Providers
