||Specialised and Professional Salesforce
For each type of business or group of products, our sales structure typically comprises branch salesmen reporting to branch executives who in turn report to a head-office manager who provides a one focal point of communication for the principal. This provides for specialisation, co-ordination and speed of action.
The structure ensures that at all levels and in all branches - at the head-office level, at the branch executive level, and at the branch salesman level, commitment and attention are assured.
We provide constant feedback and advise on the trading environment, trends, competitors activities, and on consumer and trade reaction to products, prices and promotions.
Harrisons believes that every business must have sufficient focus and whenever synergistic effects of "add-on businesses" are felt to be no longer obvious, the salesforce is further split by adding on more manpower to enhance specialisation and focus.
Harrisons has been in the distribution business for over 90 years and have considerable store of experience in, and intimate knowledge of the market, as well as a large number of contacts in the professional, private and public sectors.
