Bosworth & Kenney Selling Helps the Halcom Group Boost Revenue by 19% With the CustomerCentric Selling® Methodology

Halcom Credits Organizational Performance to the Successful CustomerCentric Selling® Sales Process Provided by Bosworth & Kenney Selling

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2009) - Bosworth & Kenney Selling, a CustomerCentric Selling® Platinum Business Partner led by Steve Bosworth and Mike Kenney, today announced that the Halcom Group, market leader for electronic-banking solutions and services in Central and Southeast Europe, has declared revenues in 2008 19% higher than in 2007. Active in nine markets, from Germany over most of the Balkans states down to Qatar and Iran, Halcom's services and solutions help 69 banks and financial institutions serve their customers in a better and more efficient way. Halcom credits its revenue growth in 2008 as a result of strong sales figures for existing products and growth in sales of new solutions, thanks to the proven effectiveness of CustomerCentric Selling®.

With only 100 employees, Halcom manages to excel in a variety of national markets and different business fields. Dr. Mirko Mušic, a member of Halcom's Board of Directors, explains, "Our salespeople face numerous business cultures and customers from different industries on a daily basis. Their ability to deeply understand customer needs on one hand and to manage the selling process on the other is the winning combination. We started reengineering our internal sales process in 2006 by training selected individuals from sales, marketing, development and finance departments and teaching them to use one sales language, one set of tools and one sales methodology. At that time Bosworth & Kenney Selling delivered their first training in Slovenia, representing the market entry of the CustomerCentric Selling® methodology in Southeast Europe. Their excellent contribution was embraced by all the training participants as well as the management, so this year the third generation of our new hires was trained in Croatia. Altogether, more than one half of all Halcom employees have now been trained in CustomerCentric Selling®."

Dr. Mušic continues, "Halcom's implementation of the CustomerCentric Selling® methodology was a gradual yet persistent process. Several tools were localized and methodology in some parts simplified to account for different business environments in numerous national markets. CustomerCentric Selling® helped our management gain a better insight and control over an increasing number of business opportunities and a growing number of existing customers. In addition, our planning process is now managed in a better way. After the last CustomerCentric Selling® training, our salespeople started to meet weekly on internal workshops in order to exchange ideas, discuss their business opportunities and help each other manage them more efficiently. This novel approach is completely based on their own initiative!" Persistent growth and success of Halcom's business significantly affects its market value, with shares that have gained more than 10% in last 12 months.

Steve Bosworth of Bosworth & Kenney Selling states, "We're very proud of the extraordinary success Halcom has seen since their implementation. Their remarkable results are proof that the CustomerCentric Selling® methodology really does work if adopted and embraced across the entire organization."
