In a given geographical or trade segment, there are always those select few customers who are critical in a company’s business as they invaluably contribute to its overall well-being. As such they should be aptly called “key accounts” and are therefore wanting of customized attention by the company’s sales organization.
It is for this reason that Key Accounts Management is designed to validate one’s understanding of who and what these accounts really are, and thus enable one to effectively attend to these accounts so that they can always contribute to the company’s well-being.
Further, Key Accounts Management also aims to equip one with the skills and tools to help key accounts increase their business, again with the company benefiting from this.
