First, Understand It's a Mindset Shift

Making the switch to service revenue is something many integrators know they need to invest in but seem to be having a tough time with getting it off the ground. A lot of the struggles just have to do with old habits being hard to break. The as-a-service approach is much different from the traditional one-and-done transactional type of selling everyone utilizes today. It’s both a challenge and an opportunity.  Technology integrators want to embrace this change but are unsure how to proceed or are overwhelmed by the idea. What many often neglect to understand is that there is a whole mindset shift that has to take place. The solution sales industry has relied on these traditional project-based cash sales for years, and now they are being asked to convert to a subscription-style of thinking and selling almost overnight. Everything from the type of proposal you submit to the terminology you use is different in your sales approach.
