8 reasons to sign up and start using Vodafonewatch now
“ Could you send this [Vodafonewatch] out to the GAMs and NAMs [Global and National Account Managers] — I’m sure some of the guys will already subscribe, but, if they don’t, it’s worth registering [as] it gives an incredible amount of information about all our business units.”
— Direct quote, from a Vodafone Global Enterprise (VGE) executive, March 2010.
- Inside track – we reveal things that you’ll otherwise miss. We present an expert view and reveal information not widely communicated across Vodafone itself, which is often material that your contacts and network won’t be seeing. This is partly why Vodafone people like the service so much.
- Contacts and leads — take advantage of Vodafonewatch to keep an eye on people movements, extending your knowledge about the executives behind initiatives, contracts, and new ventures; information that is not communicated in other sources and that shows how they fit into the bigger picture of Vodafone Group.
- Defend your account — competition to supply Vodafone is rife, and developing business with the Group and its ecosystem of OpCos, Investments, Associates and Partners is a long-term investment. Take advantage of Vodafonewatch to ensure you and all your physical and virtual teams are clued‑up and protecting the hard work and money you’re invested.
- Sell more to Vodafone — ensure you miss nothing pertinent to building new business. Maximise your account knowledge (with minimum time and effort expended), to support your engagements and deliver on potential as well as aspirations across the account.
- Widen and deepen your roots across Vodafone — Use the leads, insight, and knowledge that Vodafonewatch imparts each month, to raise awareness and understanding of who the decision-makers, influencers, and people-of-tomorrow are, and with whom to connect. Be prepared for sudden reorganisations that can disrupt your hard won and established networks…and present you with new opportunities.
- Creative cross- and up-selling — achieve a regular and reliably updated, holistic view of Vodafone, enabling you to learn and predict organisational behaviour, and helping you to anticipate openings where Vodafone evidently has needs and faces challenges.
- Stand out from the crowd — take advantage of the knowledge captured by Vodafonewatch to differentiate and enhance your positioning and propositions.
- The perfect reference for your strategic account— step back and use the Vodafonewatch archive to validate your existing knowledge and leverage this valuable resource to feed into and help build your strategic account plans and briefings. Many of our existing clients use Vodafonewatch as a central component of briefings to their teams and senior management.
